J.W. (Terry) Freiberg is a social psychologist with a PhD from UCLA who, after serving as a professor at Boston University for a decade or so, decided to take a sabbatical of sorts to attend Harvard Law School. He then worked as an attorney for several years in Boston and he is a member of the Massachusetts State Bar. Terry is a prolific author who studies chronic loneliness through the lens of a social psychologist. If you get a chance, pick up his most recent book, “Surrounded by Others and Yet so Alone: A Lawyer’s Case Stories of Love, Loneliness and Litigation.” It is a fascinating and easy to read book on this pervasive topic that, unfortunately, affects a large portion of our population. You can also see Terry’s other books and publications at this website, www.thelonelinessbooks.com I think you will enjoy hearing his story.
Maureen (Mike) Cooper has been practicing law in Alabama for over twenty-five years. Mike is a very well respected attorney and she focuses her practice on the areas of personal injury, worker’s compensation, social security disability and domestic relations. Mike, as you’ll hear on this podcast, is really a master of her craft and her representation is eagerly sought by prospective clients. In addition, Mike is very invested in our community and she does a great deal of pro bono and volunteer work in her “free time.” I haven’t had the opportunity to talk to Mike in quite awhile so I was happy to catch up with her on this podcast.
