"Each arena has its Michael Jordan. In the courtroom, it is David Berg. And Berg has taken this natural talent and time-honed skill to a new level as he unlocks certain secrets that have catapulted him to the top of his profession. What most have considered his "magic," he explains as common sense practice. This book should be a required text at every law school. Those in the legal profession should not just read this, they should study it. The difference it will make in case results more than pays for the book, over and over again." W. Mark Lanier, The Lanier Law Firm, Houston, TX "My father made his living as a lawyer. My elder brother used to practice his cross-examination technique on me and thus rose to be Australia's attorney-general. It might be said that I grew up with the law. But I can swear on a stack of bibles that I have never read a book about the nuts and bolts of forensic skill, about how to win cases and influence judges and juries, as expert, perceptive, precise and, often, as outright funny as David Berg's. I hope that I never need the professional services to which his book is a guide, but if I do I pray my defender will have read and memorized every last word of it." Robert Hughes, Author of the Fatal Shore Former art critic of Time magazine "I think of David as a people's trial lawyer in the Clarence Darrow tradition. He has tried almost every type of case from murder to patent infringement. He has an ability to persuade jurors that is the equal of any practitioner I know. The Trial Lawyer shows how it can be done." Morris Dees, Southern Poverty Law Center, Montgomery, AL "I wrote this book out of the fear that the great war stories of the next generation of trial lawyers would begin, `And then, I looked that mediator in the eyes and I said'...

Wilson "Carl" Carlisle needs to deal enough drugs to pay-off a huge back tax bill. Dutch Immigration, The DEA, an angry Russian, a gang of Turks, The Hells Angels, and even the IRS are determined that he not succeed. He had been a small time dealer when he played tennis at LSU, and he had worked his way through U Miami Law as an errand boy for criminal lawyers, bondsmen, and drug traffickers. Would these experiences give him enough of an edge to survive the array of criminals and law enforcement aligned against him? "Confessions Of a Trial Lawyer" is actually two books in one, meant to be read together. But they can be read separately as two complete stories. "Opening Statement" and "Closing Argument." As the titles imply, the second is more confronational. They can be read in any order. Read two books for the price of one.

Born in Atlanta, Georgia, as the middle of three boys, Charles Campbell grew up on a small cattle farm outside Jackson, Georgia. While a student at the University of Georgia in 1965, he accepted an offer to join the staff of Senator Richard B. Russell in Washington DC on one condition that he be allowed to attend law school at night. Campbell worked for Russell from January 1, 1966 until Russell's death on January 21, 1971. In 1968, Russell appointed Campbell as his top aide. Campbell learned life-transforming lessons from Russell about integrity, hard work, and responsibility. He traveled extensively with Russell, attended his family reunions, and was one of the few people in Russell's hospital room when he died. After Russell's death, and Campbell's receipt of his law degree, Campbell returned to Georgia and realized his boyhood dream of being a trial lawyer. He started giving talks before bar groups on the importance of civility and professionalism.

How do lawyers sway jurors in the heat of a trial? Why do the best trial lawyers seem uncannily able to get the verdict they want? In answering these questions, folklorist Sam Schrager vindicates -- but with a twist -- the widespread belief that lawyers are actors who manipulate the truth. He shows that attorneys have no choice but to treat the jury trial, from beginning to end, as an artful performance: as story-telling combat in which victory most often goes to the man or woman who has superior control of craft.Drawn from fieldwork in the Philadelphia courts and at the Smithsonian Institution's American Trial Lawyers program, The Trial Lawyer's Art gives a remarkable, in-depth look at this craft of performance. It examines how lawyers exploit a case's dramatic potential, how they enact mythically potent themes, how they project personal authority, and how they use cultural identity -- their own and their opponents' racial, gender, class, and local affiliations -- all to make themselves and their stories persuasive to a jury. Schrager depicts the performance styles of some of the nation's most artful criminal and civil advocates: in Philadelphia, prosecutor Roger King, defender Robert Mozenter, and the legendary Cecil B. Moore; from around the country, such litigating stars as Roy Barrera, Penny Cooper, Jo Ann Harris, Tony Serra, and Michael Tigar. These lawyers reflect candidly on their courtroom calculations and share revealing "war stories" about their work.Integrating performance insights with evocative portrayals of unfolding trials, The Trial Lawyer's Art offers a no-holds-barred analysis of the place of skill versus evidence in the American justice system. In doing so, it raises vital questions about the moral challenges that legal and other professions now face and sheds new light on the role of stories in American life.
