Allow me to introduce myself. I am PieFace.
I’m a lawyer, but don’t hold it against me. I was also raised by an entire family of lawyers. As a kid, did you ever have to justify your hatred of broccoli to a trial attorney? It’s not fun, and I was rarely able to win an argument. But being dragged up by lawyers isn’t all bad. I was also raised with the idea that being American means standing up for each other and for the American Institutions that make us so special.
I love this country and I’m watching us tear down the ideals that we hold dear. People, we’ve got pie on our faces.
PieFace is an attorney with an MA in Modern History and German from Oxford University in the U.K. and a J.D. from the University of Maryland School of Law. She has lived in the U.K. and Germany, and has traveled the US extensively.
