This episode of the Next Lawyer Up podcast features Joey Jackson. If his name sounds familiar to you, it is probably because you have seen him on TV for several years as a legal commentator on various cases of importance in our country. Joey currently serves in that role for CNN and HLN. In his daily work, Joey is a trial lawyer and he manages his own law firm in New York City, JOEY JACKSON LAW, PLLC. As you’ll hear on the podcast, Joey started his legal career as an assistant district attorney in Manhattan under noted Manhattan District Attorney, Robert Morgenthau. Joey’s law practice and his law firm now focuses on labor law and criminal defense matters. As you’ll hear, Joey is not any different than how he appears on TV. He is engaging, humble and smart with an ability to explain complicated legal scenarios in a simple and understandable way so it is no wonder he appears regularly on CNN! I enjoyed getting to know Joey on this podcast and I think you will enjoy hearing his story.
