10/10

I’m new to law and just started my new job at a firm and I listen to your podcast every day. I absolutely love it and I love how thorough you are with the evidence and the proceedings. I wish I could donate money to you to support you because I absolutely love what you do!! You have lots of fans from Ohio (me included!!!) keep doing what your doing!! Love Kate

Politics

Leave politics and BLM out of it. Unnecessary to involve a group that causes more harm than good.

Just the case…hold the drama

Jillian delivers the case news without any editorializing or input. She’s a great cipher, almost like a court reporter. Well done.
