On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Coastal Lawyers owner and principal Kristal Naividi to discuss how hard work over many years saw her achieve her professional dreams, in spite of myriad disadvantages, and what she has learned along the way.  

The pair talk about how setbacks in her life have shaped her successes, the non-linear line she walked to get to where she is, the need to “create a village” for one's self, and advice she would offer to other legal professionals about overcoming hardship.
