Stanley G. Schneider, one of the nation’s top-rated criminal defense attorney’s offered Alfred University’s (AU) Class of 2015 some well-deliberated advice – “love your work and your relationships; don’t settle for less.”

His message was taken from his own life experiences, he explained, noting “Success is defined in many different ways …. Judge yourself (don’t let others do it for you). Success comes from your own sense of decency and accomplishment. Find your passion in life. Create your own style, follow your heart and your intuition. I followed my heart to a rewarding career.”
