Most people have heard the saying that dogs are like their owners. I am often told I am the prime example of that saying. The pit bull is a dog of power, passion, and undying willingness. Those who know me best describe my character that same way. I rescued my dog, Maddie, from the Humane Society when she was a one year old puppy. My family told me I was crazy to rescue a pit bull. It turns out to be one of the smartest choices I have made. I have learned so much about the breed and work hard to educate the public that it is a breed to be respected, not feared.
What does this have to do with being a criminal defense attorney? As an attorney, I pride myself in pursuing what I need for my clients and I will not stop until I succeed. I am often underestimated by those who judge me on my sweet and innocent exterior. However, they are in for quite a surprise when it comes time to produce results. Like my pit bull, I am intelligent and tenacious. Pit bulls are extremely strong for their size. Similarly, despite my small stature, I am a powerful contender in the courtroom.
One other similarity that should not be overlooked is loyalty. My pit bull is constantly by my side to protect and support me. That is the type of assistance I like to provide to my clients. I believe that many attorneys overlook the important role of being there to ease the concerns and anxiety of their clients. Just as Maddie makes me feel secure at home, my clients feel secure knowing I am looking out for them throughout the entire legal process. Further, I am always available to answer questions and address concerns as they arise. That is the personal touch that I provide to all of my clients.
It is because of these qualities that I have earned the nickname of the pit bull attorney.
