Biglaw Associate With ALS is in Race Against Time to Find a Cure

It was just a year ago when Brian Wallach, then an assistant U.S. attorney, received confirmation of a diagnosis of ALS.

Above the Law introduces the story:

“Just three months later, Wallach returned to Skadden Arps, the firm where he started his career, and he was welcomed back by the firm with open arms, despite his diagnosis. Although the average life expectancy for ALS is about two to five years, Wallach is doing more than simply tending to his own medical ailments. He and his wife, Sandra Abrevaya, recently launched I Am ALS, and they hope to raise $100 million of new funding to find a cure within three years.”
