My Daughter, the Lawyer

This morning at the Supreme Court of the Philippines, my daughter signed the roll of lawyers, officially making her ATTY. ESTHER PATRISHA CHATTO y VELOSO, following a long-standing family tradition of service to God and country through the legal profession.

One day, I will retire from public service, no longer to bear the title of an elected official. When someone says “Atty. Chatto,” Trisha and I shall both turn our heads to smile.
