Two people influenced Ann Arbor attorney Stephen Goethel's decision to become an attorney. "A fictional motivator was Atticus Finch for his role in To Kill a Mockingbird which I read in a High School Lit class. The non-fictional person was my Dad. He had a tremendous work ethic and wanted me to follow in his footsteps in the business world. He knew how much I wanted to go into law. In the end, he stepped aside and encouraged me to pursue my dreams," said Goethel.

Thereafter, as Devaney then attempted to "mobilize the chest," he tore Miller's aorta, resulting in even more hemorrhage and a surgical crisis. Additional surgeons were summoned emergently to assist, and more resuscitation was required.
