The Kathryn W. Davis Global Community Scholarship Fund brings together outstanding students from diverse backgrounds for education, international understanding, exchange and service. Students’ participation in the program is made possible by the scholarships, but the initiative offers much more than a traditional scholarship program. The Kathryn W. Davis Global Community Scholarship Fund promotes interchange of ideas, enlightens participants about global and local issues and engages the students in cooperative and productive experiences.
A founding member of Lerman Senter, Steve helped set the firm on its current course: as an especially responsive, relatively small and specialized firm that provides clients with the highest quality work product, yet at a reasonable price point. Lerman Senter’s representation truly reflects a greater breadth and depth of experience than larger, more expensive firms, which are limited to communications departments within their larger structure. Because of these enduring strengths, complex media companies such as CBS, Viacom, Infinity, Entercom, Cumulus, Beasley Broadcasting, Newscorp, WNET, and many others have chosen Lerman Senter to represent them.
Steve is consistently included in Best Lawyers (2009-2021), selected to the Washington, D.C. Super Lawyers list (2007-2021), and a recipient of the Martindale-Hubbell “AV Preeminent” rating every year since 1984. A long-time leader in the legal community, he dedicates much of his time to diverse philanthropic causes supporting the education, careers, and well-being of hundreds of young people and families.

I'm Emille Macdonald, a Brazilian who decided to have an adventure in the USA in 2014. I am the founder of EM Consultoria, former au pair, a former US student, and now a permanent resident.
I facilitate and show the way for those abroad who wish to stay as a student, or tourist or obtain a green card by marriage.
