As an attorney practicing domestic and criminal law, Phyllis Lonneman sees many a case that is no laughing matter.
As Choco-lotte the clown, laughing and smiles come with the territory.
Lonneman, who graduated from clown college about three years ago, said clowning is her escape from the rigors of court, and it is a rewarding activity for her.
So occasionally she dons makeup and becomes Choco-lotte the clown.
“I’m a big chocolate fanatic,” Lonneman said.
