It was fun joining my partner and wife, Lisa Wilson, on Bernard Nomberg’s Nomberg Law Live. The topic revolved around balancing the responsibilities of owning a law firm with family life. This was fun. Give it a watch!

More about the show
Good trial lawyers know that giving a great opening statement or a compelling closing argument involves more than merely sharing the facts and evidence. They know that to build trust and be persuasive, they must weave the facts and evidence into an interesting and sometimes entertaining story that, in the end, adds meaning and value for everyone in the courtroom.
Connecting with others and building your business, especially when using social media, involves the same strategy. During this live video, I’ll show you how to do all of this, and more, to connect in court and on the social media platforms to build new relationships and close more deals.
It would mean the world to me if you register, watch and also share with your friends.
This will be good. Join some of the top digital and social media experts for Social Success Summit 2.0!” I’ll be sharing, “10 Legal Strategies to Protect Agencies and Social Media Managers.”
It’s FREE and all sessions drop November 13th so you can binge-watch at your leisure! Grab your seat: https://agorapulse.heysummit.com

I’ve been doing this ever since the first mobile phone rolled out years ago. It helps clear my mind, do some fun multitasking and get things done.
When I’m in depositions, hearings, or court, my team lets callers know I’ll be returning phone calls between 3-5 in the afternoon or maybe even 5-7 in the evening. Then, when my schedule allows, I’ll return calls while taking a late afternoon run or SUP (I use my AirPods). Mountain biking on the back trails, sitting in a jacuzzi, or just taking a walk, are also great opportunities to return calls.
When you do this, have fun. Let the other side know what you’re doing. When appropriate, joke around, give the other person a hard time for still being in the office and enjoy the process and conversation. Share your human side.
Returning calls during a late afternoon activity work well, and you’ll be amazed at just how many calls you get through if you keep things short and sweet.
Just don’t take or return calls while driving your car.
BTW, if you have any questions, call me. I’ll probably be returning calls between 3-5 today 😉
