A good article changes minds. Articles are objective, requiring research or factual data but may also encompass stories of people with varying perspectives. Showing a reader the depth of a topic with a clarity that might capture a truth is an art form.

Memorable essays reveal an honest self-reckoning the author is struggling to digest. Many marry seemingly unrelated topics together forcing us to consider a new truth.

Legal Writing

Clarity defines legal writing. When tackling complex jargon coherent, lucid writing prevails. Articles addressing legal issues sing when you mirror background knowledge and a fresh voice.


A manual outlining courses of action is essential to guide employee conduct for business entities.


Acknowledging the work with mutual regard but being frank with the specifics of an experience is the heart of a worthy review.


Celebrated speeches leave people inspired to take action. Most have a theme with limited and targeted points. When conveying detailed and complex information the audience will learn and remember the stories you tell them from personal experience.


Stories are the spirits we keep at home in our lives.


Hybrid-Homeschoolers: Adventure Abroad

San Luis Obispo Classical Academy is a hybrid-homeschool immersed in a classical curriculum with a focus on outlining character and modeling a lifelong love for learning. San Luis Classical Academy otherwise known as SLOCA functions with students on campus either two or three days a week along-side parent-teachers implementing curriculum on the remaining days. Our course of study takes root in pronounced literature and history. We study history with each grade rotating through a four-year history cycle together, commencing with ancient cultures emphasizing Greece and Rome, progressing to the Middle Ages, following through to the Renaissance, and ending with Early American History. Our historical focus is also purposefully interwoven into the literature we read throughout the year. The pinnacle is History Day, which is our annual celebration that cumulates with the students, parents and teachers either reenacting the Greek Olympic Games, feasting during the Middle Ages or attending a Civil War Ball. more

El Vette Donated

While growing up I came to know there was nothing my dad could not fix. At some point, I noticed my dad, John Jacobi (sometimes known as JJ) strived to do things differently than most. For instance, he wouldn’t buy something if he knew he could make it. Sometimes this was just plain embarrassing to me but as I got older I realized not everyone could engineer the things that he did. He was an engineer by trade and grew up working in garages on cars. Our family never took any of our cars to a shop as there was no need. He would also improve upon something if he knew he could build it another way. Nothing hits this point across like what he did with his most favorite type of car – the Corvette. more

2019’s Outstanding Woman Lawyer, who helps empower women

In 2012, the Women Lawyers Association created the Outstanding Woman Lawyer Award to honor a female attorney in San Luis Obispo County promoting the advancement of women within our community. The Outstanding Woman Lawyer Award known as the OWL Award is presented annually, in March, in honor of Women’s History Month, followed by a speaker addressing elimination of bias for continuing education credits. Two years later, we created the Rising Star Award allowing us to also recognize younger lawyers, having practiced seven years or less, but who are no less in their actions promoting the advancement of women. more

What if we took the turkey out of Thanksgiving?

It is that time of year again: the holiday season. Thanksgiving is the time when we should take stock of our lives and give gratitude for all that we have. What a novel concept—as opposed to other holidays where we take stock of what we might perceive we don’t have and demand more and more. It is my favorite holiday. I love the idea and task of focusing on all that I am grateful for. more

Is the Cost of Law School too High for Women?

Fifteen years ago, I graduated from law school in New York, with your typical law school educational debt.  My first job out of school, I earned what seemed like a decent salary but facing educational debts, as well, made it challenging if not impossible to live on my own in New York City.  I found solace in speaking with other young attorneys like myself about how to survive. more
