The Politics of Everything

Sep 20, 2022

In the 80s and 90s legal dramas ruled TV viewing in my household. Liability law and litigation seemed to be where the action was at least in that genre.

What is the state of play today when it comes to being a successful lawyer?

Meet Jamie E. Wright one of the most highly sought-after millennial lawyers and crisis communicators based in Los Angeles, CA. Being at the intersection of the law, business, pop culture and politics, Wright has made a name for herself in legal and business circles as an expert in managing multidimensional businesses and clients with keen insight on the law and a forward-thinking flare.

She is an attorney and principal in the J. Wright Law Group, P.C. Wright, who is licensed to practice law in the State of California, and graduated from the University of California, Berkeley. While at Berkeley, she worked for the mayoral campaign of the former Mayor of Berkeley, Tom Bates. Due to her commitment to the campaign and work ethic, Wright was appointed to the City of Berkeley, Peace and Justice Commission at age 19.

After graduating from UC Berkeley, Jamie attended the University of California, Hastings College of the Law. While at Hastings, Jamie was a member of the Negotiations Team and won second overall Mediator and second overall team in the National Negotiations Competition in Chicago. Additionally, she was the President of the Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity, and the Competitions Co-Chair for the Western Regional Black Law Students Association, a sub-division of the National Black Law Students Association. Wright was awarded a scholarship from the American Bar Association Business Section, as well as the Charles Houston Bar Association for academic excellence.

She has gone on and had a successful career to date. Jamie is a recipient of the LA’s most influential under 40 award and the Legacy Award from the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) and the 2nd Supervisorial District.

Most recently, Jamie was appointed to the Marijuana Task Force where she is one of three Board members who draft regulations for physicians prescribing cannabis. Wright currently serves as the Secretary to the Board of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Southern California and Chairs the Emerging Leaders Committee which is comprised of young adults ages 18 to 35 who are engaged in combating social injustice in communities of colour. Additionally, she was the former Chairperson of the Board of Directors for the Inglewood Airport Area Chamber of Commerce. She is also a volunteer lawyer for a collective of minority cannabis growers in South Los Angeles.

We hear from Jamie on:

  1. The most common type of liability lawsuitin which you stand to lose assets is one resulting from an accident, according to one article I came across. Clearly, your work is more than the art of “ambulance chasing” – explain what you do in a typical day.
  2. Quite simply, liability means legal responsibility for one's actions. Failure to meet this responsibility leaves a person open to a liability lawsuit for any resulting damages. In order to win a lawsuit, the claimant must prove that the accused party is liable. What role does the lens of liability law play in any successful legal practice in the USA and perhaps the world?
  3. What are some of the biggest challenges in this area of law today in 2022?
  4. What aptitudes make a great lawyer, especially in the liability practice arena?
  5. Medicinal cannabis is very mainstream these days but not always. How has that area of law evolved as society has become more accepting of its benefits for chronic pain sufferers, and what are the challenges you face?
  6. Take away: What is your final takeaway message for us on The Politics of Liability Law?
