Last Friday night we found out our daughter, Alexandra aka “AJ” Jackson, passed the California Bar. AJ has always wanted to go to law school (see her 5th grade Yearbook note above) and today, because of her hard work and effort, she’ll soon be sworn in as one of California’s newest lawyers.
What’s the “Pilgram” AJ’s referring to? Well, it’s a 98′ tall ship down at Dana Point Harbor. Yours truly, along with several dozen 5th graders and a few teachers and other parents, spent a very long sleepless night on the boat learning how the sailors lived back in the day. Long story short, I’m glad I didn’t live back then.
It was fun joining my partner and wife, Lisa Wilson, on Bernard Nomberg’sNomberg Law Live. The topic revolved around balancing the responsibilities of owning a law firm with family life. This was fun. Give it a watch!
The Continuing Education of the California State Bar (CEB) has invited me to be on their webinar to share the following presentation:
“How to Communicate Persuasively in Court and on Social Media”
We go live next Wednesday, November 13th (Noon Pacific | 3 pm ET | 8 pm London). The FREE registration link is RIGHT HERE!
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.
