Thirteen of the greatest lawyers in the country share with you the powerful secrets from their most interesting cases, from depositions to trials to appeals. Take their techniques and apply them immediately in your practice. Unlike other textbooks, Turning Points at Trial uses actual litigation battles that are memorable, not boring hypothetical classroom examples. There are also 447 tips summarized in chapter checklists. In addition, the book's website has related audio and video clips that enhance the lessons that are taught. Today's most successful lawyers benefit from the wisdom described in this book and now you can too. The book is divided into seven parts: opening statement, direct examination, cross-examination, cross-examination of the expert witness, closing argument, deposition, and appellate oral argument. In each part, there are chapters that profile an attorney famous for his or her skills and an analysis of court transcripts where that skill was displayed. For example, chapter one features Mark Lanier, who has achieved nationally recognized record-setting jury awards. Lanier candidly reveals his strategies and secrets for creating a spellbinding opening statement. The author, an accomplished trial attorney and highly acclaimed teacher, then extensively analyzes a court transcript from one of Lanier's famous trials so you can learn the building blocks for an opening statement and apply Lanier's techniques at your next trial. At the end of the chapter, there is a checklist that summarizes Lanier's tips. Other chapters feature highly acclaimed lawyers such as Alan Dershowitz who explains the key to a successful cross-examination and Lisa Blatt, the woman with the most appearances before the U.S. Supreme Court, who shares her secrets for a successful oral argument. In short, this book will teach you everything you need to know from deposition to trial to appellate oral advocacy from the finest lawyers in the USA.

Good lawyers have an ability to tell stories. Whether they are arguing a murder case or a complex financial securities case, they can capably explain a chain of events to judges and juries so that they understand them. The best lawyers are also able to construct narratives that have an emotional impact on their intended audiences. But what is a narrative, and how can lawyers go about constructing one? How does one transform a cold presentation of facts into a seamless story that clearly and compellingly takes readers not only from point A to point B, but to points C, D, E, F, and G as well? In Storytelling for Lawyers, Phil Meyer explains how. He begins with a pragmatic theory of the narrative foundations of litigation practice and then applies it to a range of practical illustrative examples: briefs, judicial opinions and oral arguments. Intended for legal practitioners, teachers, law students, and even interdisciplinary academics, the book offers a basic yet comprehensive explanation of the central role of narrative in litigation. The book also offers a narrative tool kit that supplements the analytical skills traditionally emphasized in law school as well as practical tips for practicing attorneys that will help them craft their own legal stories.
