well first and foremost my philosophy
00:07
recognizes the individual Worth and
00:09
dignity of my clients I think my clients
00:11
and their families need to be treated
00:13
with respect this is a very difficult
00:15
time nobody comes to me very happy
00:18
they’re in a difficult situation and
00:20
that’s one of the most rewarding things
00:21
about the practice is helping out people
00:24
who need it in terms of my approach to
00:26
dealing with the government I tried to
00:29
be as professional and respectful as
00:32
possible I want to maintain a reputation
00:35
as somebody who’s among prosecutors as
00:38
somebody who’s not gonna lie to you is
00:40
not gonna hide the ball but at the same
00:42
time don’t waver don’t sacrifice your
00:46
clients just do the best you can for
00:49
them while treating everybody around you
00:51
with respect that’s not a philosophy
00:54
that keeps me from being an aggressive
00:55
attorney I think it’s something that
00:57
very much complements my work is an
00:59
aggressive attorney I worked in the
01:06
areas of social and legal justice long
01:08
before I went to law school and have
01:10
continued that work since I became a
01:12
lawyer my work is very important to me
01:15
because it mirrors the society that I
01:17
want to live in and honors the
01:20
Constitution that undergirds our legal
01:22
system I’ve worked with women’s rights
01:25
organizations and civil rights
01:26
organizations and gay rights
01:28
organizations I’m very proud of the work
01:30
that I’ve done both as a lawyer and as a
01:33
non lawyer I mean trying to keep our
01:35
society you know happy and orderly
