Growing up, Dee Ann’s father was a coach and assistant principal who instilled the value of an education in her at an early age. He and her mother pushed her to do well in school and strengthen her competitive spirit through sports, so it was not much of a surprise when Dee Ann began taking an interest in attending law school.
Becoming an attorney was a goal Dee Ann had from the time she was a young girl. Fortunately, her best friend was three years older and shared the same passion, which ultimately gave Dee Ann a mentor to follow along her journey. When she graduated in 2006 with her J.D. she was thrilled that she had finally made her dream a reality.
Dee Ann knew she had chosen the right profession early on in her career. She once had a client who was looking at 25 years to life in prison for a criminal charge. The client knew that his entire world rested on the jury’s verdict, so when he was found not guilty in less than an hour, he was completely in shock. The look on his face was like nothing Dee Ann had ever seen. Knowing that she helped save someone’s freedom that day instilled her with immense confidence for the future.
We have more than just knowledge and experience… we have compassion.
