So much information was shared; Naomi Alabi asked her guests questions we all want to know. Everything from: What is estate planning and who is it for? What is a will? What is a trust? God forbid, once someone dies, where does a person’s family member start in terms of trying to find out what assets this person has?

Oftentimes especially during our younger years, we go through life simply reacting to the cards we are dealt. During the podcast, host Naomi Alabi asks Sabine Franco
“What is your first memory of wanting to consciously create the life that you are living? When did you first imagine yourself as a lawyer?”
Growing up, Sabine Franco remembers wanting to be a lawyer after seeing Ms. Huxtable on the Cosby’s. This is what we mean, when we say representation matters. As you may know, the percentage of lawyers that are black is declining year after year. According to the Minority Corporate Counsel Association, black women specifically continue to be significantly underrepresented, making up only 1.73% of all attorneys. Diversity in legal professions has long been a delicate issue — it’s hard and uncomfortable to talk about what real diversity entails. And that calls into focus the fact that white men continue to enjoy both racial and gender privilege in the legal industry. Given law’s importance, America needs more Black lawyers. Growing up, Sabine Franco gained the confidence to imagine herself as a lawyer in response to seeing a black female lawyer represented in a television program as well as being surrounded by hard working women
