    Training Philosophy

    From years of courtroom and teaching experience throughout the country, I developed three core principles about training trial lawyers. A successful training program captives, educates, and motivates attorneys to immediately improve their practice. Here is what I mean.


    • Crisp and highly entertaining programs. Everyone is engaged.

    • New tips. You can’t win if you don’t have better skills than your opponent.

    • Analysis of video of actual trials and depositions teach memorable lessons.

    • Dynamic interactive approach. Audience never suffers death by PowerPoint.


    • Programs are based on my award-winning deposition and trial textbooks. I am the only author to win the prestigious ACLEA award twice.

    • I receive the highest accolades for teaching wherever I train throughout the USA.

    • I have taught lawyers since 1998 as an Adjunct Professor at S.M.U. School of Law, I am a faculty member of the National Institute of Trial Advocacy and have been trusted by law firms and state bars across the country to train their lawyers.


    • As an award-winning author and professor with vast trial experience, I have the unique credibility to motivate lawyers to become their best. I have also been a full-time trial attorney since 1989, a graduate of Yale University and University of Texas School of Law.

    • I have been lead counsel on over a hundred trials in state and federal court.
