THE LEGAL BEAGLE
Parabeagle by day, DC socialite by night. You can find me prancing the streets of Adams Morgan with my dog pals in between sniffing out the latest kibbles and bits in the legal world. In my spare time, I do all the pro bono work - but prefer to be paid in bones (rawhide free, please).
