Hilary Swank for the role of lippy, headset-wearing Lucy Hatcher on the
award-winning drama The Practice.” (TV Guide - The Insider)

“Miss that old noir standard, the gal Friday with great gams and a fresh mouth who always keeps the gumshoe on his toes?  She’s back, in living color, in the body of The Practice’s Lucy-Marla Sokoloff.  A mini-tornado of a woman with spunk, sass, curves and balls.” (Interview Magazine)

“Sokoloff plays the hilarious headset-wearing, conference interrupting, gaffe-spouting, practical joke playing receptionist, Lucy Hatcher, on ABC’s award-winning legal drama.” (Detour Magazine)

“Marla Sokoloff was supposed to have a seven-episode stint on The Practice but the 18-year-old so impressed producer David Kelley that her guest gig as no-nonsense secretary Lucy Hatcher turned into a recurring role.“ (New York Post)

“Sassiness pays off for Sokoloff” (USA Today) as Lucy’s “tact free come-backs may be just the dose of levity the heavy legal drama needs...” and “as a reward, Sokoloff gets some of the ABC series most out-there story lines”(Entertainment Weekly)
