A Chicago open public defender who dedicated her profession to defending the rights of minorities, the oppressed, also to those who cannot defend themselves. After graduation from John Marshall Rules College, she became among the first feminine criminal lawyers in Chicago. Defending immigrants, she got the Supreme Courtroom to trust her on limitations to federal government questioning; and she defended gays and lesbians in a huge selection of situations of entrapment. She was created in Traverse Town, Michigan as the youngest of five daughters delivered to David and Rebecca Harchovsky, Russian-Jewish immigrants. She was good friend of the fellow minority privileges activist, Studs Terkel.
