GRECO WAS INTERESTED IN LAW AT
an early age. Her father was a political
science teacher and discussions related to
law, government and current events were
common at the dinner table. Greco put the
lessons learned there to good use in the mock
hearings and debates in her government
class at Duncanville High School, near Dallas.
At the same time Greco was learning
how to win in debates, she was also
winning on the basketball court. Greco
played shooting guard for a Duncanville
women’s basketball program that went 3
½ years without losing a game.
“I could think and see the floor, and I
could shoot,” Greco says, “but I was not the
fastest, nor could I jump the highest. I was an
overachiever more than a natural athlete.”
During her senior season, Greco’s
legendary coach and mentor, Sandra
Meadows, underwent chemotherapy. She
had been diagnosed with breast cancer
and died a couple of years later, in 1994.
“Coach Meadows—second to my parents—
had the most impact on my life,” Greco says.

Greco’s mother was also a victim of
breast cancer. As a result, Greco is a
supporter of the Susan G. Komen for the
Cure and participates in the races.
TODAY, LUCY, HER CLIENT, IS USING A
portion of the money she received from the
verdict to pay for graduate school at the
Texas A&M University College of Veterinary
Medicine. While her injury hindered the
physical endurance necessary to be a horse
whisperer, veterinary medicine allows her
to continue her passion of working with
animals. She’ll always remember that
Greco stood up for her when she was being
personally attacked in court.
