Discover the Story of Your Case Seminar Co-Leaders on the Importance of this TLC Method

2019-10-03T14:20:20-06:00 October 3, 2019|TLC Blog|

"To discover the story of your case is the foundation of everything we do and without this skill, we are not going to be as successful as we need to be for our clients. We are going to miss an opportunity to bring justice to them if we don’t know how to discover the story. You can’t really tell the story unless you know it, and facts are not the story. The stories are how people lived those experiences, how they experience those facts and how they lived them that really make the story." - Paco Duarte, TLC Faculty Leader Starting in less than a month is TLC's 2019 Discover the Story of Your Case regional seminar offered in Leavenworth, [...]

TLC Grad and Faculty Member, Tommy Davenport on a Recent Story Inside Angola Prison, Louisiana’s State Penitentiary

2019-09-23T13:37:11-06:00 September 19, 2019|TLC Blog|

On Friday, September 6, Dateline's Lester Holt shared a story on Angola, the Louisiana State Penitentiary. He actually stayed in a cell there for a number of days. It is the largest maximum-security prison in the world. It is still a working plantation. It is surrounded by a river and swampland, with a number of 'unpaid guards'-alligators. I've been at this prison many times and I cry when I leave and am angered by the time I make it home. As far as the eye can see, there are black men working in the fields with guards on horses. Not much different than a scene from 12 Years a Slave. Angola is a complete failure of the human race and [...]

 Episode 51: TLC Faculty Member, Jacqui Ford on Reputation In and Out of the Courtroom "If I want my jurors to be free to open up; if I want them to free themselves of their anxiety so they can come to creative energy, this is where I want my jurors to make decisions. This is very important: people who are making decisions from a place of pain, fear, or anxiety cannot process information the same way they can if they are in an energy of love and support."  - Jacqui Ford In this episode, we hear from Oklahoma Trial Lawyer, Jacqui Ford. Jacqui talks about the reputation of trial lawyers and the power of conversation and credibility in and [...]

2019-08-14T11:45:25-06:00 August 15, 2019|TLC Blog|

"The jurors were all leaning out of the box and the judge was intently watching as I ran across the courtroom pretending to be the dog that grabbed my client's leg (re-enacting what had happened to him). It was the most influential I have ever felt in a courtroom from re-enacting the actual scene. I can’t wait to do it again." - David Zagoria, 2018 TLC September Graduate David Zagoria is a personal injury attorney from Atlanta, Georgia who attended his first TLC regional in 2016. David had been taught in his early years, that the attorneys' job is to persuade and convince the jury - to basically twist their arms to get them to agree. So, when he attended [...]

Episode 49: Maryland Grad, Ian Anthony on the Disparity Between Law School and Trial Lawyers College  "When I got to law school, I felt it to be very rigid. There is a system of scoring people, a system for questioning students, and a system for instruction; it felt very boxed-in like law school was gearing you up to be a competitive, book smart, lawyer-robot." - Ian Anthony, 2016 TLC Graduate Ian Anthony is our guest in this episode of the Trial Lawyers College Podcast.
