“Tara has an unshakeable sense of what’s right and wrong. From the moment we met it was made clear that although our reason for meeting was this horrible crime, her priorities were us; we would only go as far as we could each day until all was completed. Instead of just defending us, Tara be-friended us which set Mayana at ease to know that if it came to trial, she would have her new friend with her the whole time she was in the courtroom, and she would keep her safe! Tara also made sure that there weren’t any surprises- we didn’t need any more stress.
I will never forget how Tara prepared Mayana to go to trial, just in case we had to and how boldly Mayana sat there on the stand, starring into Tara’s eyes as she said, “yes” when asked if she thought she could testify. This inner strength my daughter possessed, a baby, only 7, wow! Where did it come from? There were many contributors, but none so instrumental that day than Tara Lawrence. In her loving thoroughness and clever law abiding abilities, she made the courtroom a place that was familiar and safe for Mayana; a place where her new-found friend would be there to help her through this painful time. We are so sad to see Tara go, but we are excited for those she will serve in the future and pray that God gives Tara strength in representing others as she eases their suffering and helps claim their safety as well.”
