    In this episode of Legal Heroes, I speak with Bob Ferguson, Attorney General of Washington State. AG Ferguson has been a fearless leader throughout the Trump era fighting against the Muslim bans and much much more. He has been a beacon of hope during a dark period in American history.

    #113 Legal Heroes Series- Margaret O'Donnell, Playwright & Immigration Lawyer

    Legal Heroes is a series of interviews of lawyers who have stepped up beyond their day jobs to help in the various crises created by the Trump administration. This interview series is now a book!

    In this episode of Legal Heroes, I speak with Margaret O'Donnell, Immigration Lawyer & Playwright. She is someone I admire dearly and feel lucky to call a friend. When inhumane immigration detention of children separated from parents was making headline news, Margaret took to storytelling through her play The Detention Lottery to expose how immigration court really works. Her powerful play has made an incredible impact and is worth watching, if you get the chance.

    Hope you enjoy listening to this interview as much as enjoyed interviewing her! After you listen to her interview, pick up the book, and read more about her!
