Beachside Recovery Interventions + Consulting began collaborating with Ms. Fairchild prior to her partnership with Defend Ocala while she still worked for the Office of the Public Defender in the 18th Judicial Court.  Drew, the founder of BRIC, immediately noticed Lees fervent passion in defending her clients which resonated greatly with him. He also noticed that she is fierce in the courtroom and that she fights for her clients, even when they may be too tired to fight for themselves. Drew, having a history with Ocala and the surrounding areas, immediately reached out to Lee for help on a case in a neighboring county and is now BRICs go to attorney in Marion County and surrounding areas.
