Linda’s skills as a trial attorney come from a unique background. Although Linda had attended law school, she opted to go on the road as a performer rather than take the bar exam. As the lead singer with The New Deal Rhythm Band under the stage name Linda Asher, she replaced Cheryl Bentyne who left to join the Manhattan Transfer. After many years of performing internationally and recording two albums, Linda decided to retire from the road and pursue a career in law. She tried her first case during her first year in practice.
Linda nevertheless has not abandoned her music. She can be heard singing with The Singers in Law, a vocal jazz quartet; is a featured vocalist with The Big Band of Barristers; and contributes her torchy contralto voice to Legal Voices of the Los Angeles Lawyers Philharmonic. Among the highlights of her performances has been Disney Hall five years in a row and annual performances for the members of the California Supreme Court.
