Get ready, ‘cause here I come! The iconic band, Rare Earth said it best in their hit song.
My reality show “Misny Makes Them Pay” will hit the web on Saturday, Feb. 2 and I couldn’t be more excited. You can watch the show right here on MisnyLaw.com, and we’ll post a new webisode every other week.
Hollywood director and photographer Martin Kunert conceived the show and Erie Manes came on board as Executive Producer
“Misny Makes Them Pay” offers an intimate look into my professional and personal life.
Why would I let cameras into my life and spend the time to take on this huge project?
The answer is simply this. Over the years as a personal injury lawyer in Cleveland, I have spoken to a number of law school, college, and high school classes about the practice of law. When I ask students what kind of lawyer they want to be, the overwhelming answer is “a corporate lawyer.”
I always follow up their response with a simple question – “What would you do as a corporate lawyer?” Virtually every time the students hem and haw and are unable to tell me one specific thing they would do as a corporate lawyer.
In all the times I have asked that question, “What kind of lawyer do you want to be,” I have never received the response “a personal injury lawyer.”
I’m going to change that.
“Misny Makes Them Pay” will inspire a whole new generation of legal advocates for the downtrodden and disadvantaged.
I have represented injured victims throughout the United States for decades. I get such a sense of fulfillment and great accomplishment when I hold those responsible who expose us to unnecessary harm and danger.
And, by “making them pay,” we have changed policy, procedure, and protocol so that the tragedies my clients have endured will never happen to anyone ever again. Often we’re able to get dangerous medications off the market link to GL #97 blog post so they can’t harm others.
There is no occupation or profession more noble than one that allows you to help someone receive justice.
I hope that students view “Misny Makes Them Pay” and become inspired to “fight the good fight” as a personal injury attorney in Cleveland and beyond.
I am committed to helping create the next generation of lawyers, and I’m putting my money where my mouth is.
I am sponsoring four $2,500 scholarships. We are encouraging students to watch “Misny Makes Them Pay” and then submit a one-page letter to me, explaining why they would be an effective advocate for the downtrodden and disadvantaged. The four students with the most compelling letters will become scholarship recipients.
To kick off the show, we are having a party on Saturday, Feb. 2 at Peabody’s, which is located at 2045 E. 21st Street in Cleveland, from 7-11pm. Admission is $10 and 100% of the proceeds will go to the City Mission. The event is open to the public.
I really hope you can stop by. It is going to be a blast!
In addition to showing the pilot episode of “Misny Makes Them Pay,” Mike Polk Jr. will emcee and perform with his sketch comedy group, Last Call Cleveland. And, musical performances by Tkilla, Rick Ruin, and top contestants of the “Misny Makes Them Pay” Music Contest will also be featured.
