Most of us are familiar with Lady Justice as a personification of the moral force in judicial systems. Her usual attributes are a blindfold, a balance and a sword. Stephanie Brake recently created a painting that revises those attributes.
Stephanie is an artist and musician based here in Nashville, Tenn. She also happens to be one of our newer employees here at Advocate Capital, Inc., having joined our Credit team in March of this year. Like all new employees here, she went through our training program which includes a review of contingent-fee law practices, 7th Amendment basics and the truth about insurance companies. (You are NOT in good hands with Allstate and Nationwide is NOT on your side!)
After learning about the important work that plaintiff lawyers do, Stephanie felt inspired to create her painting, which is called “Lady J: 20/20.” I asked her about the process and here’s what she shared with me:
The motivation behind Lady J: 20/20: The unbalanced scale was to acknowledge a different perspective on justice. I do not believe it is blind. Due process in nature is transparent and bright, so sunglasses are needed. The dilemma is when the scales are tilted in favor for the advantaged. Luckily, there are players like Advocate Capital who are harmonizing our 7th Amendment right.
Lady J: 20/20 is on display in Stephanie’s office for everyone here at Advocate Capital to enjoy. Thank you, Stephanie!
