Child's Birthday Wish Comes True Thanks to Local Attorney
14 02 2018
"I couldn't wait to meet Landen and wish him a happy 4th birthday!"
GREENVILLE, S.C. February 14, 2018
Landen Shell had one birthday wish: to meet the man he'd seen on TV. The man who captured the now 4-year-old's heart wasn't a famous actor, sports star or cartoon hero: it was attorney George Sink.
"It all started when my son saw George's commercials. Ever since then, Landen has been all about George Sink," said Landen's mother, Daniette Shell. I asked my son, "Landen what type of party do you want?" He didn't hesitate "I want a George Sink party with all 9s." 999-9999 is the phone number Mr. Sink uses for his law practice, George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers, in South Carolina and Georgia.
Not everyone was on board with a lawyer-themed children's party, at least not at first. Landen's grandmother said, "A George Sink Party? Get out of here. That's no party for a kid!" but then she spoke with Landen and Landen's...
