In this episode of The Ryan Holtz Show, I chat with Criminal Defence Lawyer, Jordana Goldlist. Jordana caught my eye on Instagram as I caught a snippet of her #TedX talk titled “Who Judges The Judge?” What really caught my eye was how Jordana has a really “street” feel to her. Tattoos, guns and sitting on top of a porsche is not something that you typically see from a lawyer, but this is who she is. I find it very human, very real and relatable. I was curious. This is what our podcast is about.
Jordana and I touch on:
1. Criminal law
2. How she transitioned from being homeless to becoming an esteemed attorney
3. How she feel in love with hip hop music
4. What and why Judge The Judge?
5. Some of her childhood
6. How she sustains her work ethic
7. What her thoughts are on social movements like #MeToo and #BlackLivesMatters
