What's true for training great trial lawyers is true for all winning presenters. According to renowned trial attorney and best-selling author Gerry Spence, presenting a case before decision makers is not simply a technique, but an occasion for summoning your deepest reserves to advocate on behalf of something crucial. Here, Spence combines a rich exploration of truth, fairness, and emotional honesty with practical advice gleaned from a lifetime of hard-earned legal triumphs to show what makes a strong, persuasive presentation. Spence's essentials include:
Preparing the power-person to accept your case
Owning your feelings
Being "in the moment"
The power of fear, ours and theirs
Making an effective closing argument
Worth the Listen
A very well thought out book. Although it is put forth for the legal beagle, us pro se and other citizen that want more familiarity with the legal system will not be dissapointed. It is rich in philosophy, reality, examples. I am pursuaded to have my story and be prepared to meet the challenges that life, in or out of the courtroom may serve me. We only fail when we give up. Thanks for the book.
This book may be helpful for nonattorneys but it really seems like it was written for attorneys. It has alot of real examples that you can apply and is narrated by author. A steal for the price. A must have for any trial lawyer.
Spence is truly amazing and this audiobook should be required for all lawyers. I am a lawyer and found this to be both professionally and personally enlightening.
