How to Communicate Persuasively in Court and on Social Media: Business, Brand and Relationship-Building Tips Every Lawyer Needs to Know and Do

Good trial lawyers know that giving a great opening statement or a compelling closing argument involves more than merely sharing the facts and evidence.

This is Fun!

It’s been exactly one year since my book came out. Earlier today, I received this from Amazon:

“Amazon Best Sellers- Our most popular products based on sales. Updated hourly best sellers in Media & the Law”

#42 (book) and #46 (audible). Now here’s the fun part- look who’s watching me from #45. I think I’m in trouble 😉

At this time, I’d like to thank all of my brilliant friends who contributed chapters to the book and, also extend a big THANK YOU to those of you who supported the project by sharing or purchasing a copy!

I appreciate each and every one of you (book pics).

If my book is news to you and you’re look for a great stocking stuffer (book, kindle and audible), here’s the link!

What Businesses are Subject to the CCPA?

Businesses that fall under the CCPA include any business that meets one or more of the following conditions:
