When Missy Holtrey was thinking of ways for her husband to advertise his law services, she noticed billboards that were all over town for legal ads. So instead of following suit, she told him to start a podcast.
So that’s what he did.
Travis Holtrey, who is a managing partner at Foreman Watson Holtrey and P.J. Starks, director of technical operations for FWH, created ‘Law Lite.’
“Our firm is always trying to stay one step ahead in order to be at the forefront of engaging the community or keeping them educated about the legal system, so this sort of out of the box approach fits within our creative wheelhouse,” Starks said. “Travis approached me with the details and then set me loose on producing Foreman Watson Holtrey’s first-ever podcast called the Law Lite Podcast. The rest is history.”
The duo is only a month into the podcast, but they said the reaction has been phenomenal.
The show is weekly with a new episode releasing every Friday across their social media platforms, YouTube channel and the official Law Lite Podcast page on iTunes.
Starks said they are still working on building a following, but that it’s an entertaining way to spend 30 minutes of the day.
“In the episodes already released, we discuss things like working in the legal system and collision site analysis but it’s not all education,” he said. “The purpose of the podcast is to give an inside look into our firm, openly discuss some of the stigma surrounding the legal field and show the community there’s a real human side to why we exist and want to help those in need.”
Starks said he and Holtrey also tell funny stories about being out in the field and touch on personal topics like my irrational fear of death and legal horror stories.
They have guests on the show such as the already released episode ‘Rookie Season’ where Starks and legal assistant Kelley Chappell talk about their harrowing first couple weeks starting at FWH. They also have a segment called “Ask the Expert” where Holtrey and Starks attempt to stump one another with questions on legal terminology and the film industry.
“There’s a lot of laughs, a lot of great conversation and we even learn something along the way,” he said. “Our tagline literally says it all, ‘Great Law. Less Legal. Law Done Lite.’”
