Hi I’m Anne Smith, Die-Hard Star Trek Fan, Peace Ambassador and Founder of Iron Sharpens Iron Council.I’m not special or super talented… I just found a better way to learn how to crush legal research.And it all began with my passion for learning and sharing my journey on Facebook.

My Story - Two Life-changing Events that Sparked a Movement

When I first started studying law, it wasn’t because I wanted to become a lawyer or paralegal. It was because I was the victim of the corrupt judge in a family court matter and corrupt prosecutor in a criminal court case. After I witnessed bold-face lies and false evidence in open court, I knew something was terribly wrong but I didn’t know what to do about it. I found myself feeling totally disgusted with the legal system but I honestly didn’t know where to begin and I often felt lost and confused.

I struggled for years and ended up getting scammed out of thousands of dollars by self-proclaimed legal experts and gurus. I was easy prey for scammers and one scammer told me that I had to pay him “the stupid tax” as he ran off with my $5,000. Sadly, these unkind personalities who make lofty promises are a dime a dozen, use you as a crash dummy to test their legal theories only to abandon you or worse — will get you arrested.


It was humiliating and a bit deflating and I felt robbed of my dignity. I felt like giving up. But I held on and pushed past the pain because I really wanted to learn how the law works so I could learn how to help myself and people I care about.

After years of trial and error and many, many scammers later, I emerged with learning how to make law work. As my foundation of knowledge grew, so did my level of confidence and all I wanted to do was to help others who were interested in learning law to experience the same breakthroughs they needed without the years of stress I had endured. So I started a free study group on Facebook and then launched this website three years later. None it was planned and I’m still learning how to manage all of the moving pieces.

I believe in the power of love and being a united front, which is why I named the study group Iron Sharpens Iron Council which is aligned with my principle to embrace the spirit of cooperation and to be surrounded with like-minded people who are kind and peaceful. The definition of a council is a group of equals moving together for the benefit of all, the perfect idea because it clearly signifies that every member’s voice matter and everyone has a seat at the table.
