An Evening with Joumana
An Evening with Joumana
We all know the name, the face, the catchy marketing: Joumana.
But do we know her story?
Please join us in welcoming Joumana Kayrouz as BasBlue's Women's History Month marquee speaker.
A Lebanese immigrant who came to the United States with only $1,000, Joumana is the founder and owner of the Michigan Center for Personal Injury and the Law Offices of Joumana Kayrouz PLLC. Founded in 2003, Kayrouz’ firm has been recognized as one of the largest personal injury law firms and the largest woman-owned law firm in Michigan.
Join us for an evening to learn about her incredible journey, how she built a household name, and her advice on navigating barriers to success.
Dubbed “Queen Of The Legal Ads”, Kayrouz’ face has appeared on the covers of over 750 buses, 250 billboards, as well as television. Kayrouz has signed in 2014 what remains the single largest outdoor marketing campaign in Michigan advertising history. Kayrouz has also been called “The Helen Of Troy” of legal marketing because her face has launched thousands of lawsuits.
Since earning her Doctorate in Juris Doctor degree in 1997, Kayrouz has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for her injured clients in auto accidents. She built her career on a combination of legal savvy, hard work, and a sincere empathy for the financial, physical and psychological needs of accident victims. Her law firm is growing constantly, adding highly qualified attorneys and legal staff in other fields such as immigration law and bankruptcy law.
Kayrouz was born in Beirut, Lebanon. She began her Undergraduate Studies at the American University of Beirut (AUB) in Beirut, Lebanon, then emigrated to the United States in 1986 at the age of 22 with only $1000. Kayrouz initially settled in Connecticut, where she completed her undergraduate studies at Southern Connecticut State University ( SCSU), then attended the prestigious Yale University, where she obtained a Master’s degree in Ethics, with a concentration in Medical Ethics in 1992. Kayrouz later moved to Michigan to study law at Wayne State University School of Law, and graduated in 1997 with a Juris Doctorate in law.
Kayrouz, who is fluent in four languages, several dialects of Arabic, French, Italian, and English.
