I was happy to be able to sit down with Nesha Wright on this podcast and to get to know more about her history. For one thing, I didn’t realize that she was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. Not a fan of the cold Chicago winters, Nesha headed south for college and attended Randolph College in Lynchburg, Virginia where she received dual Bachelor of Arts degrees in Religious Studies and English Literature with an emphasis on American Literature. After completing her undergraduate degree, and with guidance from a professor who was really instrumental to her education, she made her way to Cumberland Law School at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama and has practiced law in the State of Alabama ever since. Nesha is a highly respected and skilled lawyer who was recently named as a 2019 Mid-South Super Lawyer rising star. She is the founder and principal of the Spencer Wright Law Firm in Huntsville, Alabama. Nesha’s primary practice areas are juvenile law, family law and criminal defense. She is a Former Adjunct Instructor in English at Calhoun Community College located in Huntsville, Alabama and a former freelance legal writer for NOLO.com. Additionally, Nesha is a 2018 graduate of the National Criminal Defense College-Trial Institute Program. When she can free up some time from her busy law practice, she enjoys sewing and design and also fits in volunteer work with the Alabama Lawyer's Association, Madison County Volunteer Lawyers Program, and working with students interested in the field of law. I think you will enjoy getting to know her on this podcast.
