"The courtroom is my world, and I love the challenge. It's a chess game. It's like going to war. Before you enter a battle, you must prepare, prepare, prepare. After the forces are aligned, you engage the enemy. The courtroom is the ultimate battle, and it fits my personality perfectly." — Attorney Dirk Padgett
