Something you love about being a parental defender: I enjoy being able to help parents who love their children and want to change their lives, but struggle due to mental health, substance abuse or issues. As their attorney, I am in a unique position to walk them through the process, while ensuring that their rights are safeguarded. Often times, I am the only person they will listen to. It's amazing to see how strong people are and how much they can overcome. It's very rewarding when a case is successfully closed and to witness the changes that occur within a person from the beginning to the end of a case.
A tip or trick: Communicate, communicate, communicate. Just as in every other area of the law, clients want to know what is going on with their case and that you (their attorney) are on top of it. Good client communication can be the difference between a happy client and an angry client. It can be the difference between a successful case and an unsuccessful case.
