TLC2 2018 Graduate, David Zagoria Wins Justice After Attending TLC Flagship 3-Week College

"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.

TLC Podcast Episode 49: Maryland Grad, Ian Anthony on the Disparity Between Law School and Trial Lawyers College

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.

In this episode, we talk about how TLC differs from law school and why these differences are so important for trial lawyers.

TLC Podcast Episode 48: TLC Grad Shares Insight into TLC’s 3-Week College Experience

Episode 48: TLC Grad Shares Insight into TLC's 3-Week College Experience "When I was accepted to the 3-Week College, it almost felt like I was accepted into Law School all over again.

Jon Hawk, TLC September ’18 Grad Wins Victory for Client in First Jury Trial After Graduating from the Trial Lawyers College

“It was the best professional decision I have made in my life and the best three weeks of growth as an attorney that I’ve had in twenty-one years of practice. I discovered I was in my ‘lawyer head’ instead of in my heart, which kept me from being the best lawyer I can be. I can tell you these words, but until you experience it for yourself, you will never understand." Jon Hawk is a personal injury trial attorney in Macon, Georgia who has tried cases before juries for over twenty-one years. He first attended TLC’s 5-day Psychodrama for Lawyers in 2017. This time spent at the ranch, and at this course (now taught as ‘Trial Skills Foundations’) piqued his [...]

TLC Podcast Episode 45: The Power of Place with TLC Faculty Member, Rafe Foreman

 Episode 45: The Power of Place with TLC Faculty Member, Rafe Foreman "It is a very lonely business. It is a very isolating business. As a matter of fact, a lot of people don't have the intestinal fortitude to do it, so they don't practice criminal law or they don't take cases against a county, a municipality, or a police department because it's not politically correct in their world. This (TLC) is a world of lawyers who do the right thing, who do the tough thing, who represent the damned, the downtrodden, and the voiceless. It's a very lonely place and we need a place for those kinds of Warriors and souls to congregate and recharge to let people [...]

TLC2 2017 Grad, Dominic Andriacchi Jr. Brought Justice for Client in Northern Michigan

"This trial was a TLC trial if there ever was one. I did the listening exercise, doubling, all the psychodrama methods I learned, and we were able to reenact the crash during cross-examination. I asked for over a million dollars in a conservative county in Michigan and before trial even started I had people laughing and telling me I had a frivolous case, including some of the people on the jury in the venire." - Dominic Andriacchi Jr. (TLC2 '17) Dominic Andriacchi Jr. graduated from TLC's 3-Week Flagship College in September 2017 and has since taken a new approach to fight for the clients he represents.

TLC Podcast Episode 44: The Effectiveness of Psychodrama with Faculty Member, John Naizby

Episode 44: The Effectiveness of Psychodrama with Faculty Member, John Naizby "Cancer has been a gift in some ways that I've really learned how precious every day is. And how to live in the present and not the future or the past, to really value every connection you have with people, stuff that I thought I did before but truth be told, it's easy to backslide if you're not always trying to evolve, and to do the work on yourself. But cancer has brought that front and center for me and I don't think I would have been able to see that part that has really truly been a gift if I had not had the experience of going through [...]

New York Attorney Paul Barr, Wins Victory for Client after Attending First TLC Regional

"A big takeaway for me after my first Trial Lawyers College Seminar was how I learned to create a 'tribe' with the jury, with me as their leader. The faculty used this terminology – 'Make the jury part of your tribe', because we're all part of the same tribe; the defense, the people at the table, the entire court. Even though you can’t speak with the jurors directly, you can develop a rapport or an affiliation with them that lasts throughout the trial." - Paul Barr, TLC Voir Dire CA Regional Seminar Student Paul Barr is a personal injury attorney from Buffalo, New York. He attended his first Trial Lawyers College Regional Seminar in Huntington Beach, California on Voir Dire [...]
