[video]Motley’s Law: Fighting for “Justness” within the Realm of Justice

The constant threat of danger, the distressing impact of structural instability, and the shadows of punitive eyes watching with hopes of innocent mistakes leading to jail time; to the average person these predicaments may sound like terrifying elements of an impulsive environment. To Kimberley Motley, just consider it as a regular day and more so a distraction from her work. Meet Kimberley, a former beauty queen (Miss Wisconsin 2004) turned prominent and fearless international lawyer.

Yes you read that correctly, an American woman, a Black & Asian American woman who does not practice Islam working in the Afghan legal system as a litigator and enforcer of justice.
