    in Legal

    Tara Kachaturoff interviews Alan Sims about his work as a forensic real estate appraiser as well as the significant work he has done in helping homeowners with mortgage and foreclosure issues.

For the past several years he volunteered to advise the public on a plan of action. As the calls came from all over California (and form all over the country), he recognized a need to form The Center for Litigation & Consumer Real Estate Education in an effort to assist the public. www.clcree.org The Center for Litigation & Consumer Real Estate Education (CLCREE) mission is to educate homeowners who may have been victims of predatory lending, loan modification scams, and other real estate issues. We organize consumer complaints and provide expert testimony and discovery assistance in the legal arena.

    Desiree Moore discusses the value of law firm tradition with host Tara Kachaturoff,

    Desiree Moore is the founder and President of Greenhorn Legal, a three-day intensive training program for law students and new lawyers as they transition from academics into private practice.

Greenhorn Legal aims to equip new lawyers with the personal skills, practical skills and business sense to succeed in a law firm. Ms. Moore is an Adjunct Professor at Loyola University Chicago School of Law and was an associate at the law firm of K&L Gates LLP (formerly Bell, Boyd & Lloyd, LLP) in Chicago for six years.

    "Sistahs Coping" A Conversation with Tara Jones

    in Health

    As we continue our conversation on health we take a look at our emotional health. Our Day to day routines  force us to deal with how we handle some of  life’s many challenges, from how we build relationships, to how we recover from setbacks. Like our physical health, our mental and emotional health requires that we take the same amount of care. The loss of a family member can be very unsettling, especially when it is an untimely death. An unexpected death can shatter our world as we know it, and it is often a loss that does not make sense. But how do we cope, what are the steps that we take in order to “make our lives whole again?” Joining me for this conversation is Tara Jones, an author, motivational speaker, whose passion is empowering girls and women. Her current project, a booked entitled, “Sistahs Coping”, focuses on African American girls and women whose fathers have been murdered. The book opens the conversation to the therapeutic resources, as well as the first step to promote public awareness of the lasting emotional, economic, and social effects that are often overlooked amongst African American women due to the abrupt deaths of their fathers.  


    Join us as we discuss the upcoming book, and Tara shares some insight to the project, and the stories of “Sistahs Coping…”
