Dallas trial lawyer Charla Aldous discusses her case, Martin v. Medical City. The case involves a 15-year-old girl, Rachael Martin, born with cerebral palsy.

Charla Aldous: It's emotionally tough sometimes, and sometimes I wonder how many more cases I have it in me to take because people have often told me that I get too emotionally involved in cases. My response is if I cease doing that then I need to stop practicing law because if I needed a lawyer I'd want someone who was emotionally invested in my case.

In Rachel's case, it was terrible. I would go to a deposition and the deposition would go great for the case, but I would hesitate to call Rachel's parents to tell them about the deposition because I would think, "If that were my child and I heard this news, I can't fathom to think how it would feel to not only lose my child but know that it didn't have to happen." I think bringing that humanity to a case and that type of compassion is beneficial to the clients and it's what I love about my job.
