Synopsis By: Golick - Proceeding Author: Thomas T. Roberts

NAA President Tom Roberts recounts anecdotes of several inspiring, impressive and otherwise memorable advocates he has known in his career. The lesson Roberts has learned and imparts in his address is that every man and woman who works for a living is entitled to respect and dignity no matter how humble their origins or how routine their employment function. It is wrong to judge someone simply on the basis of innuendo, transitory public hysteria or, worst of all, group association.
