HIRE PORTIA TO SPEAK AT YOUR
NEXT EVENT

Approx. 70% of African Americans have ZERO estate planning at all. It is estimated that $2 billion dollars is lost annually by going through the probate process. Probate is 100% avoidable with proper planning. You don't know what you don't know! I love to educate on topics that matter to our community!

"Without the right strategy, good ideas and hard work can be wasted."

Thorough fact-finding with a team member, so we both understand the best way I can serve you and your audience.

Social media announcements about your event—if this is a public event that requires additional publicity.

MORE ABOUT PORTIA

My calling is to activate historically and systematically marginalized communities to take agency over their lives and build impactful legacies.

SPOILER ALERT: YOUR AUDIENCE IS TIRED OF BEING OVERLOOKED!

As a Black woman, I understand what it feels like to be overlooked, and undervalued and I definitely do not bring that vibe when I speak.

I have over 10 years of public speaking experience. I have also appeared on national television, podcasts and local radio, including Good Morning America and MSNBC. The National Black Lawyers Association named me Top 40 under 40 for the last 5 years. ​

 

As a licensed attorney, much of my work includes legal education and entrepreneurship. No matter the audience, I distill complex topics into a fun, bite-sized way that’s accessible and engaging.

I devote my time to practicing law and speaking on stages of aligned values.

Outside of speaking, I am a mom to Emerson, activist, founding attorney of a successful estate planning firm, author, docent and avid volunteer in my local community.
