The 2013 Trial Guides Litigation Quote Calendar is now available.
This daily calendar is the result of painstaking work by the Trial Guides staff to bring you the very best advice from every product we carry. We’ve searched every book and video in the Trial Guides library for the best advice from today’s leading experts on litigation, such as Gerry Spence, David Ball, Rick Friedman, and more.
I have started going to more seminars, reading more books, watching more video—trying to get beyond "the law" and generic trial techniques, and focusing specifically on how to win plaintiffs’ personal injury trials. It soon became apparent that a new publishing company predominates this niche, publishing and distributing some of today’s most important plaintiffs’ trial materials—Trial Guides.
Gerry Spence is America's most renowned and successful trial lawyer, a man known for his deep convictions and his powerful courtroom presentations when he argues on behalf of ordinary people. Frequently pitted against teams of lawyers thrown against him by major corporate or government interests, he has never lost a criminal case and has not lost a civil jury trial since 1969.
Trial Guides is now distributing three of his books and one audiobook CD set.
