MY FIRST MILLION DOLLAR JURY VERDICT (and lessons learned)

In life, there’s often quite a bit more to what first meets the eye. This verdict didn’t just happen because I spent two weeks in a jury trial. It happened because of the prior 25+ years of my life.

In the video, I share the details. I think the ideas and mindsets apply to most of us no matter what we do for a living.

This case started back in 1994 after my clients rejected a $1.00 settlement offer (that’s not a typo– it was a one dollar offer from the other side’s insurance company). Their son had been killed while riding his jet ski at Lake Havasu, after being struck head on by another watercraft. We we’re trying to settle a claim brought against the other driver/rider.

This case involved an incorrect/false police blood test report, and so much more. In the video, I share a few things I still think about to this day and, several good trial lawyer tips and strategies.

I’ll be sharing more trial lawyer war stories over the next several months. Don’t miss my next upload. Please stop by my law firm YouTube channel (different than my social media/video channel), subscribe and ring the darn bell. More life stories are on the way!

It was an honor helping this family find justice for the wrongful death of their son. I’m glad I can share part of their story with you.

The next time you think about responding to “Black Lives Matter” with an “All Lives Matter” response, please consider the following story:

The Child

A child is seriously injured after being struck by a car in a crosswalk. You run out to give aid. While kneeling next to him, you shout out for help.

Nobody responds.

You yell louder. Over and over.

Finally, someone standing safely on the sidewalk, 100 feet away responds, “What about me? My life matters too!”

You turn your head towards the distant voice in disbelief. You respond… (click to read)

Do I Set Goals? Do I Have a Business Plan?

I’ve always been a bit of an outlier when it comes to starting and building successful businesses, including my practice. I hope you enjoy the run and my thoughts on setting goals and having a detailed business plan (I think you’ll be a bit surprised).
