Today we’d like to introduce you to Lillie M. Coley.
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
Hello, my name is Lillie M. Coley, PhD mainly called Dr. Lil. I am the daughter of the late formal U.S. Marine James O. Coley, Sr and my mother a Political and Community Activist, Lillie C. Coley. I have always be told by my parents to “follow” the law even when others dont. So, doing what right matter in upholding the Constitution and Rule of Law. I have been a computer engineer most of my life and at the same time apart of ministry at my home Church these experiences help shape my life in helping people help themselves. I firmly believe in empowerment. I got to where I am today with hard work and my faith in God especially, after my parents tragic death when I was 11 years old. However, their legacy in my up bring still helps me to today to all that I can be as both my parents were servants to the community.
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
The challenges I faced mainly came from my gender and when I was younger not having parents to fight for me. But, I never gave up on my dreams and kept my faith in God knowing “that all things work together”.
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
Through a community project called “Buying Justice” we are trying to help people become empowered with technical direction if they become a victim of court corruption and/or hiring a bad attorney. We have advocates and good attorneys who want to help victims obtain justice.
What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
The best piece of advice is to believe you have been called by God with a purpose and if you dont believe in God you still must believe in yourself that you have self worth and purpose in this place called life.
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
Success means being able to help yourself and others reach their goals. Doing what’s right matter. Being a good example matters.
What’s next for you?
With our project Buying Justice we are seeking to submit New Legislation so others who may not have much money or resources can obtain justice in our society as they seek in out in a competent court.
Finally, how can people connect with you if they want to learn more.
