Haben Girma- Disability Rights Lawyer and Advocate

 

My Podcast Interview with Haben Girma [written transcript here]

Haben Girma is the first deaf-blind person to graduate from Harvard Law School, and a leading advocate for equal opportunities for people with disabilities.

Several United States Presidents have praised Haben for her work and President Obama named her a White House Champion of Change. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had this to say about Haben:

“I wish to take this opportunity, as well, to recognize you for your lifelong advocacy for people with disabilities, especially for the deaf-blind community. As a teacher and Prime Minister, I am particularly grateful for your work to ensure that students with disabilities have access to the tools they need to thrive at school and beyond. When our society is inclusive, we are all better off.”

While Haben is busy traveling around the world consulting and public speaking and teaching clients the benefits of fully accessible products and services, today, she’s took a break from her travels and is joining us from San Francisco for this chat.

On a side note, we did the interview like most podcasts. The only difference was that Haben had an interpreter sharing my questions and comments with her through a special brail assisted device. Understanding that there are more than 1B disabled people worldwide, it’s important to appreciate how technology can bring us together regardless of where we are or what our disability is. Please connect with Haben via her website at HabenGirma.com

How to Have a “Success Mindset” In Business and Life

I believe that an indispensable ingredient to finding success in your practice, business, and life, is having the right mindset. This is especially true when it comes to building your brand on social media. Sharing your personality, being selectively transparent, and putting proper people skills to work will help you stand out above the noise.

While building your brand, it’s important to realize that social media platforms will come and go, but relationships can last a lifetime. Understanding this fact will help you create long-term success. Doing things differently than everyone else in your profession will allow you to stand out and develop an active digital footprint and reputation on the social media platforms resulting in your brand expanding from local to global.

While I was a guest on the popular Maximum Power Podcast, attorneys and co-hosts, Jim Hacking and Tyson Mutrux, focused our conversation on the topic of “mindset” and asked me questions that I’ve never been asked before. In the end, this particular episode pulled back the curtain on exactly what my mindset has been over the years and, also what I’ve done to build my brand on social media. For those reasons, I want to share it with you.

If you’re serious about building your practice and brand and taking things to the next level, then I recommend you watch this interview. What I’ve shared here, with Jim and Tyson’s permission, is the video version of the Maximum Power Podcast. If you’re interested in listening to the entire interview in podcast version, and on your favorite podcast platform, you can do so here.

New Testimonial From Purematter CEO, Bryan Kramer

It was a pleasure assisting Purematter, an award winning marketing agency, with its business litigation needs. As much fun as it is to livestream on social media, it’s even more enjoyable to help great people and companies get the results they’re looking for in the traditional offline legal world. As such, I’m glad we were able to help and humbled to receive this testimonial from CEO Bryan Kramer:

“Mitch Jackson is the anomaly. His approach is open and empathetic, yet determined at every turn to bring a conclusion to the case. I always felt educated about the status and that decisions were being made together. Having a guide like Mitch through the legal system isn’t just necessary, it’s critical.”

Safety Tips From a Trial Lawyer: How to protect your daughter from the Harvey Weinsteins of the world!

 

Today’s New Yorker magazine story alleges that Hollywood film executive, Harvey Weinstein, used his position of power to sexually harass and rape multiple women. Famous actors like Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, and Ashley Judd, all share a common story that goes something like this.

According to published facts, Weinstein would create an environment where he would end up alone with a young female. It’s reported that he would then make sexual advances, ask for a massage, or masturbate in front of the victim. Another common theme seemed to be that Weinstein would dangle, like a carrot, promises of movies and fame in exchange for sexual favors.

Unfortunately, the Weinstein story mirrors decades-old allegations of wrongful sexual conduct. From Bill Cosby to Donald Trump, the same questions come up over and over. Why don’t survivors come forward sooner? How can victims protect themselves from sexual harassment in the workplace?

As a trial lawyer and father of two young adults getting ready to enter the workforce, I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you, four ways you can protect yourself from sexual harassment (unwanted sexual advances, inappropriate touching by co-workers, sexually hostile work environments) in the workplace.

Speaking at the Clio Cloud Conference in New Orleans

Lisa and I had a fantastic time in New Orleans visiting with friends, enjoying good food and music, and speaking at the Clio Cloud Conference.

Our friend, Nicole Abboud of Abboud Media rocked the stage with a great presentation about millennials. Later that day, I also had the pleasure of presenting my thoughts about using VR, AR, MR and AI in litigation and trial. It was also great having dinner with LegalMinds mastermind member, friend, and fellow motocross rider, Thomas Wallin, and his wonderful friend Madison.

Several additional highlights for us included meeting and chatting with Preet Bharara and disability rights and global inclusion leader, Haben Girma. In addition to the pictures below, we shared a few personal memories on my Facebook page.

David Lat, the founder and managing editor of Above the Law wrote a wonderful overview of the #ClioCloud9 event titled, “4 Trends Shaping The Future Of The Legal Profession” (thanks David!).
