Anne Marie Mihalkanin founded POC Enterprises, a company that’s dedicated to researching and preventing sexual, child and domestic abuse.  Her team has been involved in many organizations for over 20 years.  Anne Marie was a SART (Sexual Assault Response Team) crisis counselor and advocate and worked closely with local police for on site aiding to victims of domestic violence.  Her role was to counsel and find a safe place for these victims and their families to start a new life. Her drive and dedication has allowed the male counterparts of her team enter safe houses for women which is uncharacteristic for institutions of this type.  She had a connection with the Heartland Human Relations for Fair Housing Association and was part of a Human Trafficking Awareness Team.

Melody A. Kramer is a graduate of the University of Nebraska, College of Law in Lincoln, Nebraska, and for over 20 years worked as an advocate and trial lawyer for clients around the country.

Working as a Deputy Public Defender in rural Nebraska, Special Prosecutor for Crimes Against Children, and later in private practice, she saw first-hand the destructive influence of violence, especially against women and children. Though she took on challenging, sometimes seemingly unwinnable cases, with a marked level of success, including successfully prosecuting criminal cases and increasing real jail time served by offenders, it didn’t feel like she was making enough impact on the world.

When she moved to San Diego, Melody discovered reality-based self-defense classes taught by Anne Marie and Michael Mihalkanin, a powerful tool to helping victims of bullies in all contexts, be it a courtroom or a dark alley. Now in addition to her San Diego law practice, Melody has become a vocal advocate for protection of victims of bullies, including efforts to level the playing field for litigants in court cases. She is the author of “Why Lawyers Suck! Hacking the Legal System, Part 1” and her upcoming book “Redefining Patriotism: How to Deal With Our Differences In America,” both of which apply anti-bullying tactics to other real world scenarios.
