11 Hastings Race & Poverty L.J. 321

2014

I want to commend Linda specifically. I know she is early in her career, but when she came out to the trial, she did a lot of work behind the scenes. Linda was a true professional during the trial. She did an outstanding job. In a trial there are plenty of opportunities for anyone on the team to screw something up, but she was flawless.
