In this episode we speak with Fareed Nassor Hayat truly a man of many talents and passions. He is a playwright, a successful real estate entrepreneur, a former public defender in the City of Baltimore, founder of The People’s Law Firm, LLC, and a law professor. And he just turned 40.

We talk about how Fareed endeavors to balance his diverse personal and professional pursuits with being an active and engaged family man. Growing up, Fareed was surrounded by close relatives who were pimps, prostitutes and gang members, who set the example for what he says he was supposed to become.

Yet, Fareed managed to “slip through the cracks” of a life destined to be trapped in the criminal justice system to receive a bachelor’s degree from UCLA, MFA from USC and a JD from Howard University. Today he stands in the courtrooms fighting for justice and civil rights for many whom he is their only hope, while in classrooms training the next generation of lawyers to join him in the fight.

This is a very thought-provoking conversation about the criminal justice system, economics and the ability to transcend or fulfill family legacy.
