Miss Pedersen aided me when I was attacked and then sanctioned by my school for the incident rather than my attacker.
Miss Pedersen seems to be a generally very nice person. This means when you first meet her she can come across as young quiet and unassuming. And that is her secret weapon. In court she can switch to suddenly becoming Sigourney Weaver in a suit.
This is a good thing. It means her opponents often underestimate her. And lose.
Make her your secret weapon. Highly recommended.
