I've really enjoyed reading about what you've done with yourself from college, right up to now. I also think your networking/marketing prowess is what pisses off your detractors most. YouTube? A stroke of genius!!! They'll make a movie about you eventually! But you already know that right?" Cannazine - Myspace friend

LA's Dopest Attorney NEW Youtubes

February 21, 2007


As long as I can remember I have loved clothes. As a kid I used to get into dressing in the latest Guess and Esprit outfits that were popular in the 80s. Ironically ( I went to school in Beverly Hills), my classmates would make fun of me, "accusing" me of being rich. I was hurt and sad but I didn't let their harsh words get in the way of the pleasure I got in expressing my creativity and sense of self through my fashion.

i was just talking to my daughter about this today...she is a very talented writer for 17, and she also is a bit eccentric...she dies her hair a different color of the rainbow every other week...but she is very happy and comfortable with who she is and does not feel that she has to "conform" to fit in or be happy...if i need a lawyer i'm not picking a "yes" man...i'll take my chances with you any day...peace

I have heard a reference to the formal 'suit' as armor for engaging in battle. Your choice is important for each circumstance, always showing the proper respect of course. Dress up, but try to avoid looking haughty or stuck up.
