Surrounded by the height of the crack epidemic, the two career choices were to spend majority of his time in Bolingbroke Penitentiary or slave away at Raven Slaughterhouse in the hopes of making ends meet. As most know, prospects are not high for those born on the south side of the tracks in San Andreas. Just another kid bound for the system and to be another statistic. Atticus would find himself being accepted to the University of San Andreas, Los Santos where he completed his undergraduate studies. This success propelled him into a renowned law school in the Southern United States. This time in the South has continued to leave an imprint on the attorney as his time spent in the area can still be heard from his “twang” to the “southern hospitality” many have come to know. Since moving back to San Andreas, Atticus has become proficient in the courtroom and gained notoriety for his zealous defense of his clients no matter the stakes. Atticus was one of the earliest and licensed members of the San Andreas State Bar Association. Atticus has continued to practice within the state, slowing down his private practice to serve as the role of general counsel for a small business. Atticus Goodman is San Andreas through and through. A wonderful success story of a man who pulled himself up by his bootstraps. Atticus Goodman is here to serve as an elected representative for San Andreas and can’t wait to bring San Andreas up by it’s bootstraps, like he has before.||A resident of Los Santos for 18 months, Joanna has been around since the opening of Los Santos’ gates.

Joanna was bar-certified by Chief Justice Andrew McKinley in April of 2021 and assisted in prosecuting both criminals.|
After a month-long retirement, Joanna decided to change careers and joined the Public Defender’s Office. After only really seeing things from the perspective of law enforcement, being able to see the opposite side of things and gain a better understanding that sometimes the people’s rights were infringed upon or they were being treated unfairly by the system. Gaining this perspective was really helpful to her growth as a bar-certified lawyer. She continued her law education under the tutelage of State Public Defender Kayla Harlaw and Senior Defender De’Andre Evans.
