    Giorgia Morini (former Crown Prosecutor turned culture leader, speaker, and strategic advisor); and
    Lauren Phelps (former law firm partner turned wellbeing advocate and mediator)

    —as they do their darndest to convince me to read yet another book I'll probably buy, and then leave to languish on my dust-encrusted shelf.

    "The Instagram Lawyer" with Danielle Keyes

    A growing phenomenon in legal circles, you can find Instagram Lawyers pretty much everywhere these days.

    They are #nofilter, #candid, and #real.

    Except when they're not...

    For the uninitiated, ILs are individuals who (despite their relative inexperience and/or disinterest in the law), cultivate a carefully curated online presence that packages them up as far more accomplished, seasoned, and qualified than they actually are.


    In this episode of "Dear Sh!tshow", Danielle Keyes (Group General Counsel, Nova Entertainment) dishes her advice for how our letter writer can navigate the fallout from one Instagram Lawyer's unreasonable demands and poor work performance in her small, suburban firm.



    It's bold!

    It's brave!

    And it's forged in the fires of Mount Doom!

    Tune in to hear what Danielle has to say...
