Success Story: Jessica Hirsch Biales: Lawyer Invents "Octopus" Strap to Carry Files

Octopus Strap Jessica Hirsch was once your average New York City lawyer running to court lugging files - typically along with a newspaper and a hot cup of cappucino. One day, on the subway platform, waiting for the train, it occurred to her that if her files had a strap or handle, her life would be much easier. Back at the office after a court appearance, she discussed the idea of a file carrying strap with her colleagues, Michael and Adam Schlesinger. The three agreed that a strap for the file was a great idea for a new product. Michael, Adam and Jessica designed and developed the strap, which they dubbed "octopus."
