Helping Attorneys and Paralegals to work smarter, faster, and more efficiently.

These programs are available free of charge through April 17, 2020. Enjoy!

David helps attorneys find and build the best story from their case facts, using narrative techniques that have recovered millions for clients. With the precision of a legal advocate and the art of a playwright, David guides attorneys through the process of combining evidence and testimony with character and plot to create a potent mixture that engages fact finders while educating them. Use the narrative approach to build opening statements, motions, briefs, and closing arguments.

Key points:

  • Arranging the facts into a compelling narrative
  • Finding the emotional center of the story and communicating it clearly
  • Speaking in visual language that engages the imagination
  • Writing for oral delivery: simplicity, clarity, brevity
  • Clarifying arcane financial and legal language
  • Using vocal and physical techniques to make the story more persuasive

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), mental health is “a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.”

Currently, the stressors on lawyers are no longer “normal”. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased levels of stress, anxiety and worry within the legal profession. This new global situation compounds the multidimensional stressors that legal professionals already experience.

Mental Health providers know that chronic levels of stress and anxiety may impact the mental and physical health of individuals.

As a psychotherapist, Nancy Nolin, will be sharing tips and techniques to address stress and to encourage self-care to maximize balancing the challenges of being an lawyer.

Attendees will receive a follow-up email with resource lists and handouts for stress management.

Lawyers can’t ethically use Amazon Alexa anymore.

Here’s why… In 2018 Stuart warned that lawyers couldn’t use gmail anymore (ethically speaking).

For the same reason he thinks lawyers can no longer use Amazon Alexa.

Short story– Amazon employees are listening to recordings of our conversations…and that causes ethics problems.
