(May 9, 2011)
Legal thriller author Randy Singer and his Virginia Beach law firm recently won a real-life civil case that was so compelling Lifetime made the movie Widow on A Hill from the story. The advocate of three daughters whose father was allegedly poisoned by their stepmother, "This has been one of the most hard-fought cases I have ever handled," Singer said to HamptonRoads.com. In the same piece he spoke of the balance between preaching forgiveness and seeking damages. "My role is two fold. To be the most fierce advocate I can for justice, because Scripture is all about justice, but also to be a counselor. The very last thing we did at mediation was go to Romans 12 - don't take vengeance into your own hands. Do not overcome evil with evil, but overcome evil with good."
