Summary

Discovering the true story of your starts on day 1. It starts with you and your experience. It continues as we learn about the witnesses, police response, prosecutors and society. Motives, pressures and other blinders lead to false beliefs or false accusations. As we learn the true story, we investigate to support it, and to disprove the prosecution story. Its basis is found in science and psychology. The true story of your case provides the best way to win at trial. It also allows gets to the best plea bargain, if that is your desire. This process works. It works to give you #honestresults.

My job is learn the facts, know the law and present it all to you so you can make good decisions. If your decision is trial, my job is to win (attorney regulation says I cannot promise more than my sincerest effort towards that goal, so that is my promise). This is best done by telling the true story of the case. Gerry Spence taught me how to do that at the Trial Lawyers College. Now, I help him teach it to others as part of the Trial Lawyers College Faculty. Second to winning a trial is helping a lawyer to learn how to win.

The law is important. After more than 20 years practicing, I know law. I always find new bits. Every year, the legislature changes the law and appellate courts interpret it with greater nuance. Sometimes it helps, more often the District Attorney council lobbies to make convictions easier. What never changes is the power of story. A well told true story of a case will win where reliance on law will not. As powerful as "proof beyond a reasonable doubt" sounds, jurors focused on harm and emotion will convict. The true story solves that. The true story challenges the prosecutor to disprove this story of innocence beyond a reasonable doubt. The true story is one the jury sees and feels. It does not rely upon the cold reason of logic, of law.
