Famed Black Judge Premieres Show & Pulls Back Courtroom Curtain

Emmy-nominated Tanya Acker‘s hugely popular syndicated television series “Hot Bench” premieres its new season September 15th and her new book MAKE YOUR CASE drops October 6th.

MAKE YOUR CASE lays out insider information to survive and win in court. In these times of civil unrest, Tanya offers comprehensive advice to demystify courtroom proceedings, and cuts straight to the essentials providing curated, targeted advice based on her extensive experience regarding exactly what people want to know: what happens during court proceedings and why, and how to best prepare for it — or how to avoid court entirely and find a better way.  

Currently seen by millions serving as one-third of the judge’s panel on the hit TV show “Hot Bench” (nominated this year for an Emmy), Tanya has an extensive legal background helping low-income women in family law cases to later joining the White House Counsel under Bill Clinton, in the career-defining US Supreme Court case of Clinton v. Jones. She now wants to offer help to those dealing with current issues affecting them in today’s landscape. Tanya is working to arm people with the knowledge needed to tactfully approach a dispute, rather than immediately setting court dates. People assume going to court is the next logical step in their fight, but they often have little idea about how the court system works or what they can reasonably expect of it. They make poorly informed judgments about whether the court is the best option for solving a problem, what kind of solutions it can provide, and why it proceeds in the (sometimes) counter-intuitive way it does.
