Atticus Macaw proudly serves as the Friedman Law Firm’s mascot. Named after the greatest literary figure of all time, Atticus Finch, from Harper Lee’s “To Kill A Mockingbird,” Atticus Macaw inspires us to represent our clients honorably, fairly, and to the best of our abilities.
Harper Lee’s character, Atticus Finch teaches us how integrity and moral courage are the foundations upon which the honor and the trust of others are built.
At the Friedman Law Firm, we live these lessons in order to give our clients an advantage during pre-trial negotiations and at trial. With moral courage, we are given the strength to stick with our client’s convictions and do the right thing, no matter how hard the challenges.
Lastly, Atticus Finch shows us how crucial it is for an attorney to never forget about empathy. No matter how difficult, Atticus encouraged tolerance and respect for others by constantly urging and reminding people to see things from the other side’s point of view:
“If you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you’ll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view—until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.”
Likewise, Atticus Macaw inspires us to never lose sight of context and to always see the human side of our cases. He reminds us that nobody is perfect, but most do the best that they can given the circumstances in which they find themselves.
