Trial and the Art of Sailing: A Guidebook for New (and Not So New) Attorneys to Navigate Trial Advocacy, and Life (Hardcover)
The overwhelming majority of cases never go to trial and, because of this, most attorneys, whether they're new or seasoned litigators, don't have a lot of actual trial experience. They find jury trials intimidating and awkward.
Although experience is always the best teacher, what if you don't have any, or not much? Your first clients shouldn't have to suffer through your learning curve, and neither should you. Noted trial lawyer Michael Schwartz has come to the rescue in this informative and entertaining guidebook to help attorneys lacking experience or confidence, navigate trial work step by step, from the first client meeting to verdict.
Like a good sail, Trial and the Art of Sailing zigzags back and forth along the waters of actual trial work and life, between blunt advice, mistakes lived and learned, anecdotes, war stories, strategy, and good, old fashioned commonsense. Schwartz's nearly thirty years of experience has led to unmatched success and now you can have the same success in your own career.
