    Welcome to Season 4 of Hashing Out the Law. I am your host, Arash Hashemi.

    On this episode I speak to Reyna Marder Gentin. After almost two decades of practicing law, Reyna decided it was time to try something new. So she retired and started a new Journey. However, she did not know where the journey would take care. After taking a writing class, because of a dare, Reyna discovered her new passion: writing.
