As Mother’s Day approaches, I want to honor all moms, but especially mine.
She isn’t just SuperMom, in my mind she’s SuperWoman! In an age when there weren’t many women attorneys, she became a trial lawyer and blazed the trail for other strong, powerful women. She was the lead trial counsel for Fortune 500 companies with complex cases and for MGM when Cary Grant was chairman of the board. She went up against the Mafia and represented prisoners on Death Row. And she prevailed every time!
This picture was taken of my mom for an article in Los Angeles magazine when she was about my age. While growing up, I always knew that she had important work to do, but she always made me feel like I was her most important case. I hope that one day I can be a thousandth as terrific of a mother as she is.
