WJR Radio interview with Joumana Kayrouz; Highlights and podcast

WJR Radio interview with Joumana Kayrouz; Highlights and podcast

Joumana Kayrouz did a great enlightening interview with Jack Krasula on his radio Show "Anything is Possible" Sunday night on WJR AM 760.

Here are some excerpts from the interview:

"I grew up in a very Christian home where Christian values were exercised. I am the youngest of four children, with three older brothers," Kayrouz told Krasula, noting that she and her three brothers all have doctor degrees.
"That was part of the fuel for my success when I wanted to prove my mom wrong, who told me about my brothers and I said I will show you. I am going to out-do my three brothers."

Kayrouz holds a Masters Degree in Ethics from Yale University, and a JD Degree from Wayne State University. She revealed she originally wanted to be a medical doctor and had been accepted top medical school when she decided to change to a career in law.

Kayrouz noted she grew up in "a very loving environment." She praised her mother for her hard work to raise the four children while her father served in the army.

"My mother had a lot of wisdom and knew what she was doing. And she managed to raise four doctors," Kayrouz remembered.

"I had heard of something called the American Dream. I brought a vision of that with me here and I tried to live it. This land is truly, Jack, the land of opportunities. How far you go is up to you. How little you travel is up to you. In this beautiful blessed country, you have no excuses not to succeed."

Kayrouz said that she always wanted to be a doctor but changed in part because family and friends would constantly tell her that she was good at debate and discourse.

"Since I was a young girl, people would say I should go into law. You are very argumentative, and very persuasive and you tire us out," she said.

"Seeing the power of the law her to make humanity better and make things better for people, I think what I was meant to do was to become a lawyer.
And I have never regretted it. Never," Kayrouz said.

Attends President Obama’s Inauguration

Southfield, MI -- Joumana Kayrouz, the prominent Michigan Accident Attorney recently named one of the state’s Top Lawyers for 2012, received an exclusive invitation to attend the inauguration of President Barack Obama and the President’s Inauguration Ball that took place in Washington D.C. on Monday Jan. 21.

Ms. Kayrouz, who has met personally with President Obama during his several past visits to Michigan, described the 57th American inauguration of a president as an “uplifting experience” that serves as a testament to the nation’s commitment to Democracy and freedom.

“The inauguration is a reminder that America is one of the few countries where power is transferred or, in this case, continued in a non-violent and peaceful process as the result of a system in which the people have a direct say on selecting their leadership,” Kayrouz said.

“It was exciting to watch as the President and Mrs. Obama drove and walked down Pennsylvania Avenue following the ceremony to install the president to his second term in office in a public celebration that everyone can enjoy freely.”

Positioned in a reserved section in front of the podium where Obama was sworn in to office using both Abraham Lincoln’s Bible and the Traveling Bible used by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., Kayrouz said Obama’s speech was “inspiring and bold. He said a lot. His speech had a different tone this time from his inaugural speech that he gave in January 2009.”

Kayrouz also said she was moved by opening remarks offered by New York Senator Chuck Schumer who focused on the Statue of Freedom affixed to the top of the Congressional dome.

Kayrouz was invited to attend the Presidential Ball and the Michigan Ball which featured some of the state’s most influential political, government and community leaders.

“It was a great honor for me to be invited to attend the inauguration, the Presidential Ball, and the Michigan Ball,” Kayrouz said.

President of the Law Offices of Joumana Kayrouz P.L.L.C. of Southfield, Michigan, Ms. Kayrouz is a recognized leader of the Michigan’s legal profession.

She was named one of the “Top Lawyers of 2012” by DBusiness Magazine, Detroit’s premier business publication, in a confidential poll of more than 18,000 Michigan lawyers in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Washtenaw, and Livingston counties recognizing attorneys in 50 legal specialties.

Kayrouz also received the prestigious 2012 American Arab Chamber of Commerce (AACC) “Economic Bridge Builder of the Year Award” at their 20th Annual Banquet celebration.

She was named a “Presenting Sponsor” honored during the 50th Anniversary gala of the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

In 2010, Ms. Kayrouz received the Trailblazer Award from the Lebanese American Club of Michigan (LACOM) during their 15th Annual dinner for her achievements in the legal field and for being an outstanding member of the Lebanese-American community and a pioneer in the Michigan legal industry.
