Trial Guides Year End Message for 2012

Trial Guides Year End Message for 2012

On August 16, 1946, a group of nine plaintiffs’ lawyers met in Portland, Oregon at the Heathman Hotel, and formed the first national organization for trial lawyers, called the National Association of Claimants’ Compensation Attorneys (NACCA). NACCA went on to become the Association of Trial Lawyers of America (ATLA®), and later the American Association for Justice (AAJ). In 2004, Trial Guides was formed in Portland, two blocks away from the birthplace of the AAJ. In late 2010, Trial Guides became the new publisher of books and multimedia material for the AAJ. The Trial Guides web site now provides products from both Trial Guides’ own product line, as well as products published in association with the AAJ.

While many books purport to educate young trial lawyers on trial procedure and trial techniques, few guide law students and new lawyers through the common behavioral and psychological mistakes that can undermine a promising career.

With Becoming a Trial Lawyer, author Rick Friedman has written a book that does both. Friedman, a member of the Inner Circle of Advocates, guides future lawyers on their career path, weighing in on the pros and cons of being a trial lawyer, and explaining how to lead a healthy, balanced life in a field where career largely dominates. In addition, the book is filled with tips from Friedman's trial career.
