Spiwe Jefferson

Attorney, Certified Mindfulness Practitioner


Spiwe (pronounced "Spee-way") Jefferson is a successful attorney and certified mindfulness practitioner who authors inspirational publications empowering you to live and work to your highest and best purpose each day. In addition to working on her first book on mindfulness, she authors a weekly blog, Mindful in 5, teaching busy readers with no time how to apply mindfulness in their daily lives starting with just 5 minutes a day.


In her legal practice, Spiwe represents Fortune 500 companies in courts across the United States and is recognized as one of America’s Top 100 Civil Defense Litigators®, America’s Top 100 High Stakes Litigators®, and Top 100 National Black Lawyers. Among numerous civic activities, she is patron fellow of the American Bar Foundation and past president of the Minnesota Association of Black Lawyers.


Spiwe has been a student of mindful meditation for over 14 years. She was inspired to launch Mindful in 5 in response to a growing trend of anxiety, loneliness, and disillusionment that many accomplished professionals experience in the workplace - even at what should be the apex of their careers.
