“Reversing roles with others through using the TLC methods, learning how to walk in the shoes of other people and consider different points of view has absolutely made me a better mother, a better wife, a better friend and a better lawyer.“
BETSY GREENE, TLC Alum and Indiana Trial Lawyer
“Being a lawyer is a hard job. I mean, plain and simple, you’re fighting all the time. TLC really empowers us to connect with people so all the fears that are ingrained in us fade to the background because the work we’re doing is so important.“
SCOTT GLOVSKY, TLC Alum, TLC Faculty Member, and California Trial Lawyer
“I would definitely encourage anybody who’s thinking about doing cross examination and improving on cross-examination to sign up for this seminar or similar seminars. It’s easy to do. You don’t have to travel anywhere. And you’re sitting in a community with people who will just make you a better trial attorney.“
MIKE SMITH, TLC Alum and Georgia Trial Lawyer
“I think that the TLC methods and the teachings and the practices help even the playing fields where, you know, you’re not just the little David going up against Goliath, that you have a bigger slingshot and a bigger rock in it and you’re not afraid to hurl it at Goliath.“
ROB MCKINNEY, TLC Alum and Tennessee Trial Lawyer
“Get there as fast as you can and you’ll never look back and your life will never be the same. Knowing this group of people is like having a nationwide law firm. And every time I think that I’ve seen the most amazing thing that I can see people do for each other, somebody ramps it up to a higher level.“
PAULA ELLIOTT ESTEFAN, TLC Alum and Texas Trial Lawyer
“I had done a prior regional with TLC and I was kind of concerned when I signed up for this virtual program about what it was going to be like from the perspective of the interpersonal connection, how people would be able to connect in the same way that they did at the regional that I attended. And I’m going to tell you that the process that they put in place to do the regionals, to do them in a virtual manner, really impressed me. There was a lot of great steps that they took to make sure that we were all able to connect even though it was virtual.“
PAUL GHANOUNI, TLC attendee and Georgia Trial Lawyer

TLC FLAGSHIP 3-WEEK COLLEGES
This comprehensive 3-week program dissects courtroom procedures with painstaking detail to provide hands-on tools toward achieving justice. Trial skills are only part of being a force in the courtroom. The trial lawyers’ power originates from within. Knowledge of oneself gives the lawyer the capability to know others and to connect with each person in the courtroom including the witnesses, the judge, and the jurors. The power of TLC’s methods come alive through creative, spontaneous, outside-the-box innovations that capture juries and move them to justice.
