LEGAL COUNSEL K ROYAL     K Royal is an attorney and global compliance professional with 25 years of experience in the legal and health-related fields and is currently working in global privacy. Back in 2000, K was an RN and about to enter law school, when her husband (at the time) had a psychotic break. A local agency helped her and her children through this trauma and asked one thing in return – help other victims. K took the challenge seriously. Starting in law school, she was the first volunteer of a U.S. Department of Justice pilot program for victims – which has now become a national standard in criminal cases. She typically volunteers over 1,000 hours annually - both in her role as an attorney and hands-on, such as putting on a cape for children in need.
