Win Your Case

I have been a prosecutor for the last 7 years in the SF Bay Area, and Gerry Spence in "How to Win Your Case" has given me even more confidence in trying my cases through his methods of persuasion. At the start, it comes out elementary, but as it progresses the book literally gives you power to make an argument for what you believe in. And everything he talks about can be applied to any situation you may find yourself having to argue an idea or a case to another person or group of persons. He keeps it simple and commonsensical. I play it in my car while going to my next day of trial. Each time you listen, you come up with new ideas on how you tailor your arguments through your own life experiences.

Dry then Wet

The beginning talks a lot about who you are and getting to know your inner voice... I almost thought it was a self help book for a little bit.

Then it picked up drastically by dealing with situations a trial lawyer will encounter, such as: empathizng with the client, appearing as a truly honest person, and other entities to sway the jury. He hits on many key points that seem obvious but truly aren't.

As a future lawyer I found many key points that were not explicit in most legal books. There are no break throughs but this is definitely a solid read and gives you something more to measure a yourself and a lawyer by.
