Take Your DAUGHTERS to Work Day


To all the little girls who are watching me, never doubt that you are valuable and deserving of every chance, of every opportunity in the world to pursue your goals and dreams.  -Hillary Clinton

I always take my daughter to work. 

It's very important to take our DAUGHTERS to work until women get equal pay, equal standing, same opportunities.  

Lead by example.

LawDiva Doctora Ana Maria Polo

mamaslatina.com
Doctora Ana Maria Polo from Caso Cerrado is a judge on TV but that was only half her dream.  See, her first dream was to be  in front of the cameras, YEAH!  But not as a judge, no or even as an actress.  NO!  She wanted to SING!  

She plays guitar and sings and even composes her own music.  This diva even sang in front of the Pope once.  

Maybe music wasnt in the stars for her because she became a lawyer instead.  But somehow, she made it to the front of the cameras deciding cases and declaring judgement with her signature throw of the gavel. 

Funny how things turn out though!  Music is still her passion and she composed and sings and even raps the song for the show!

When Tweeting or IGing is a Misdemeanor


Voting is your right.  Taking a picture of it- that's a misdemeanor!



And that's exactly what Justin Timberlake did.  And I'm sure many of you reading this can't wait for November 8th to go out there and vote and then SNAP, post, tweet, hashtag this experience away.  Because if you don't snapchat it or post it in some way- well, it just didn't happen, right?



Well, no.  Go to the voting booth and VOTE.  In fact,  tweet all you want about it.  Just DONT SNAP THAT PICTURE!  NO pictures at all!  Cuz then you'll need a lawyer.  You can call me but, I really do want you out of trouble! 



VOTE!!!

What a Lawyer Looks Like


Did you hear about Delta Airlines and the doctor that was on board?


Real quick --- the plane was  in flight when a passenger needed medical assistance.  A black woman doctor tries to assist but was halted by flight attendant and blocked access to the passenger in need because: we are looking for a physician, please sit down. This is no time for questions, we need a doctor.

Yeah. So.  After the black woman doctor repeatedly said: I AM a doctor, the flight attendant then asks her for ID.  Cuz, you know, that's what you do in a medical emergency.  

Anyways, read the whole story here 

This lead to the twitter hashtag #whatadoctorlookslike.

In light of this, here is my take of #whatalawyerlookslike.

Because just last week, again I was asked for ID and asked incredulously, "You're a lawyer!?!"

I didn't tweet about it, or make a facebook post about it or anything cuz ... hasta cuando?  I mean really, how many times do I gotta write about it?  I'm jaded.  I'm tired.

I told Vic about it and he says he can be standing in court in a suit, holding his briefcase and he'll be referred to as the defendant: "Mr. Rodriguez?"  and he has to say repeatedly:  NO I'm his ATTORNEY."

For so long I kept thinking of changing my LinkedIn profile picture.  But why?  I'm not changing it.  Get used to it.  That's #whatalawyerlookslike cuz that's what I look like!
