Legal issues can be some of the most difficult and stressful challenges that people face in their lives. And the majority of people struggle through those challenges alone because they feel left behind by the system. Being in a position to lend my voice to family, friends, or whoever calls on me during those times gives me the greatest sense of pride and motivates me everyday to stand up for what is right.
