Rod Chapel remembers it like it was yesterday — a conversation with his father, a small contractor.
“He talked about having to hire a lawyer and we were going to go to court,” Chapel recalled. “And I said, ‘OK. And we’re going to win?’
“And he said, ‘We’ll have to wait for the judge, or the jury, to make their decision.
“So, I understood the power of the judicial system, at a very young age, for fixing wrongs.”
