Philip Hirschkop was one of two lawyers who represented Mildred and Richard Loving. Hirschkop found himself involved in the cast completely by accident. However, he was an important figure in fighting for civil rights during the tumultuous 1960s. In a recent Washington Post article, Hirschkop recalled: “I remember I hugged Mildred for the first time in all the years I had known her . . . And [then] they left our offices as a legally married couple no longer facing incarceration and able to raise their children living near their parents, family and friends in the commonwealth of Virginia.”
