I have been reading the articles and comments on the recent case in which the rival lawyer Thomas Gooch accused Dmitry N. Feofanov of exploiting his assistant Daniella Atencia‘s assets to “draw the attention of the jury away from the relevant proceedings.” Seems Ms. Atencia is Mr. Feofanov’s wife and he is not happy with the opposing attorney’s comments and antics.

Dmitry Feofanov and Daniella Atencia

 

As a woman, the comments made by some are quite hurtful to Ms. Atencia.  To think that a beautiful woman who happens to be a paralegal, should not assist her attorney in court, is simply ludicrous.  Distracting to the jury? Really? How so?  Simply because she has large breasts?  There is no mention, in what I have read, that says that Ms. Atencia was wearing inappropriate clothing in the courtroom, in fact from the picture here, it looks as if she is professionally dressed.  Does Mr. Gooch think that jurors are really going to be so distracted and enamored with Ms. Atencia’s large breasts that they will disregard the law and facts before them and issue a verdict in favor of Mr. Feofanov?  I highly doubt it and I would think the jurors would be a bit upset with Mr. Gooch for thinking that they are so shallow and impressionable.

To make matters worse, Mr. Feofanov is getting requests for pictures of his wife’s cleavage.

As a paralegal, what do you think of the motion that Mr. Gooch has filed?  I would be very interested to hear from my fellow paralegals, male and female on this one.

Happy Mother’s Day to each and every one of my paralegal pals!  In our busy, sometimes crazy days, we forget to remember that our friends and co-workers go home to families and continue working long after the ‘work day’ is done.  I hope that all of you mothers are taking a well deserved day off from work and housework and pampering yourselves with whatever it is that brings you joy, peace and relaxation!  And here is a little video for all of us moms, enjoy!
