Legally Speaking - an Emmy Award Winning Television Program
Legally Speaking is a television show with a mission to deliver information about law through interviews with people about subjects that impact our lives. This television show, filmed for Public/Education/Government television in partnership with the City of Sterling Heights, has been in production since the early 1990’s.
