DUI Lawyer, Kim Hunter, Writes of Atticus Finch in NW Lawyer Magazine
Integrity, honesty and humility—such qualities in a lawyer are expected, but are hard to embody at all times. This is why when Super Lawyer Ms. Kim Hunter, a reputable DUI attorney serving Federal Way, was asked by the NW Lawyer Magazine to write about the topic “My Most Influential Law Figure”, she chose the character of Atticus Finch. Set in a time when African American discrimination wasn’t considered unjust, Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird remains one the most moving novels about criminal defense that inspires lawyers, young and veteran alike, to dedicate their best in protecting their client’s right. “Not only did he recognize the injustice operating in his small town; he took up the gauntlet and defended Mr. Tom Robinson with a zealously that is rarely seen today”, wrote Ms. Hunter. Atticus Finch stood firm in his belief that everyone deserves the best defense, even in the face of threat against his family.
