Ms. Childress is passionate about increasing diversity amongst women and people of color in the legal profession… She believed that if children of all backgrounds (socio-economic, racial, etc.) are exposed to the field of law at an earlier age and see positive images of lawyers, more children would consider entering the legal profession, helping to diversity a profession that is lacking in diversity. …that an adventure series about a child lawyer would be not only fun, but also educational and great exposure to images of lawyers for children who did not know what lawyers actually did.  (from http://www.africanamericantimes.com/2016/09/29/featured-author-jessica-childress/ )
