    Legal Beagle Podcast: The Future of Psychedelics with Gary Smith

    Legal Beagle Podcast: The Future of Psychedelics with Gary Smith

    In the most "far out" podcast yet, Jonathan sits down with Gary Smith.  Gary is America's foremost authorities on psychedelic law.  Gary advises companies and organizations around the country on matters related to drug laws and treaties.  Gary has authored numerous books including, Psychedelica Lex and Psychedelic Arizona.   Gary co-founded Guidant Law in Phoenix, Arizona, is general counsel for the Peyote Way Church of God, and has an obsession with cinnamon.  Gary is currently working on the Uniform Plant and Fungi Medicine Act which will hopefully lay the groundwork for the legalization of psychedelics.

    Legal Beagle Podcast: Meet Chrissy and Kaitlin, founders of Hagen Nares

    Legal Beagle Podcast: Meet Chrissy and Kaitlin, founders of Hagen Nares

    My friends Chrissy Hagen and Kaitlin Nares recently opened Hagen Nares in Denver, Colorado.  Hagen Nares is a modern law firm that sprouted out of The Great Resignation.  Chrissy and Kaitlin both worked for a large law firm in Colorado, where they struggled to strike a good work-life balance.  They also looked 10 years into the future and realized that the legal profession was going to look entirely different than it does now.  Together they launched Hagen Nares, a women owned law firm focusing on personal injury and civil rights.  This is a great interview with two dynamic humans.  Enjoy.

    Legal Beagle Podcast: Diary of a Mad Juror

    Legal Beagle Podcast: Diary of a Mad Juror

    In 2014, Cynthia Pigott made history by sitting on the longest civil trial ever held in Manhattan, NY.  In 2021 she published her vivid memoir, Diary of a Mad Juror:  An Inside Look at a Record-Breaking Wrongful-Death Trial that fell Short of the Truth.  Cynthia provides a firsthand look at the wrongful-death case that led to a whopping ninety-six-million–dollar verdict.  More telling is what Cynthia discovered after the civil trial had ended, what the criminal case revealed, and why the courtroom is not the place to look for the truth.

    Legal Beagle Podcast: Mediation CAN Hurt Your Case

    Legal Beagle Podcast: Mediation CAN Hurt Your Case

    On February 7, 2022, trial attorney Grant Gehrmann sent out an email to a list of plaintiff attorneys. Dubbed “the post,” this email challenged traditional norms and offered a musing on the idea of mediation. Grant took the position that engaging in mediation can actually hurt your case. Grant’s email was met with a firestorm of responses from attorneys all over the country. I invited Grant onto the show to talk about mediations, his post and why unorthodox approaches should be embraced not shunned.

    Grant Gehrmann can be reached at:

    Legal Beagle Podcast: The Decentralized Legal System

    Legal Beagle Podcast: The Decentralized Legal System

    Wesley Thysse Msc. joins the show to discuss the Whitepaper that he authored in 2018 titled: The Decentralized Legal System.  In this paper, Wesley offers a construct of how to develop a legal framework within a decentralized ecosystem.  In a sense, this Whitepaper creates a bridge between cyberspace and the real world to allow for enforcement of dispute resolution.  More thought-provoking is the idea that this Whitepaper envisions a world governed by decentralized law.  

    Wesley can be reached at:  https://decentralizedlegalsystem.com

Loved listening and learning about the law.

So much great information covered in a few short minutes and with clarity to the layperson. I recently spoke to a couple of the attorneys at this firm and both of them were kind, compassionate and knowledgeable about the law. On the phone and on the podcast, they patiently explain the realities of litigation. Glad I found the podcast - will definitely subscribe and recommend.

Finally found a legal podcast!

Told everyone at work about this podcast and they totally think I’m weird for listening to a legal podcast. I’m supper excited! I love listening.

I am sure not only your Mom listens! I just binge listened to all of the podcasts so I can get caught up. Love how you keep it short ( I would listen to longer ones) and to the point. Very informative but now my mind is racing because I have so many questions.

Straight talk on legal

I like how Negretti focuses on one specific topic and handles it all in around 10 minutes. The law can be tricky and it’s nice to learn it in these bite sized segments. Carry on Negretti. You have a fan.
