Interesting and useful information for all of us!
The Law Sisters combine their expertise and experience with some humor! Their use of real life cases makes it easier to understand what they are saying, given the complexities of law. Highly recommended listening for business owners, managers, employees and the general public! Looking forward to listening to more episodes! - Henry J.
Realistic approach and discussion to workplace behavior!
I am really enjoying Leto and Valerie's humor and commentary as they discuss realistic issues in employment law. They are longtime friends and law partners so I think their podcast is natural and easy to listen to. The issues they discuss are serious, but I enjoy that Leto and Valerie take an approach that isn't all legal jargon, but easy listening for anyone interested. I'd not only recommend this to other attorneys, but also business owners, employees, and managers--male or female.
Listen in for a treat
The Law Sisters clearly know their stuff. No other topic is more relevant to the time we’re living in, and their approach is well informed, thoughtful and intelligent. And it’s pretty funny. All together a must-listen
