In the days since Bill Cosby was formally charged with sexual assault in Pennsylvania, one of his attorneys has taken over the spotlight.

While defending her client, Monique Pressley sat down with CNN and basically owned the entire interview. No matter what side of the argument you’re on regarding Cosby’s guilt or innocence, you can’t deny that this woman is good at her job.

Similar to a real-life Olivia Pope, Monique’s got it handled. Watch her work in the video below.

You might not agree with everything she says, but we’re all for giving props to a boss woman when we see one. So, who is Monique Pressley?

Here’s everything you need to know about Bill Cosby’s impressive attorney.

She hails from Galveston, Texas.
