The new docu-series Sisters In Law follows a tight-knit group of six successful black female lawyers in Houston. The insights into their lives and their professions — the amazing day-to-day — is seriously compelling television. Some of the women are civil lawyers like Rhonda Wills going after Corporate America on behalf of her clients, some of them are practicing criminal lawyers including Vivian King.
Vivian King considers herself the matriarch of the group. King has mentored many of the other Sisters In Law and she won’t be disrespected. King wasn’t always a lawyer. She worked as an internal auditor and operations specialist for the former Texas Commerce Bancshares (now JPMorgan Chase Bank). She left her Vice President position in 1989 to study law. After graduating from Thurgood Marshall School of Law in 1992, King became the second black female to become board certified in criminal law in Texas. Sisters In Law premieres March 24 at 10pm on WEtv.
