As Erin and I chatted, she sipped her coffee from a mug her daughter gave her, which reads, "Gandhi—be the change you want to see in the world."

According to Brockovich, the big difference between Ed Masry and his partner Jim Vititoe and the majority of lawyers is that they, according to Brockovich, "saw outside of the box."

"A lot of lawyers get stuck within the confines of the law," said Brockovich. "The best lawyers see beyond the law. They can see a human aspect to it, and you have to see beyond the games that a big corporation and their experts will play."

With Masry and Brockovich working as a team, they discovered that nothing could stand in their way. However, before Hinkley case, life for Brockovich was rough.

"They left a couple of things out of the movie," explained Brockovich. "I had a really sick kid; and with only enough money for the essential groceries, there was nothing left for cough medicine. So, it was one of those little scenes where it's like, 'Oops, the cough medicine ended up in my bag.'"

"That is deplorable, I know," Brockovich said. "Sometimes out of desperation, things like that happen to people; and it's sad. During that time in my life, I felt very destitute."

When Brockovich began working on the Hinkley case, she was teeny-tiny. "I was a size 2 because I would not eat. All I ever had in the cupboards were mac and cheese and two hot dogs, which were gonna go to the kids," Brockovich stated. "Sometimes we have to make self-sacrifices in order to make things work."
