We selected eight Lawyers of the Year for portraits and asked them to share a favorite quotation and to tell us why they love what they do. These profiles appeared along with Woodward/White’s annual Best Lawyers in America list, as published in our November issue.
“Sometimes you have to be a lion, to be the lamb you really are.” — Dave Chappelle, quoting his mother Yvonne Seon
Why do you love what you do? “The criminal justice system doesn’t lean toward justice on its own — it must be coaxed in the direction of justice by fierce criminal defense lawyers. I love what I do because I love working with my clients to fight for a just result.”
