What is Success? 

This quote says so much, and has always been meaningful. But since I have become a public defender, it means so much more. 
We don’t choose our clients, who to defend, or what fees to charge. We don’t choose to defend the rich versus the poor, the clean versus the dirty, or the educated versus the ones who didn’t get the opportunity to learn… But for every smile I can put on one of my clients’ faces, for every genuine “thank you,” and for every time justice is truly served, I remember: I have succeeded ❤️
