This is my first blog post. It's Michelle writing, and I will be writing almost 100% of the posts. I am writing to reflect, share, teach, and just be me. Some of my posts will be informative for potential clients, and some of my posts will be about a topic close to my heart - criminal justice reform. But my main reason for writing is to share the viewpoint and some of the things we experience as defenders of the citizen accused. We are their voice and we want to share the hard experiences our clients often face, the battles we fight, the victories we win, and what we've learned along the way.
