The following is an interview with one of America's greatest trial lawyers, Randi McGinn. She is a member of the Inner Circle of Advocates an invitation-only group of the 100 best trial lawyers in America, and author of the Trial Guides book Changing Laws, Saving Lives.
Randi McGinn on Changing Laws, Saving Lives
Trial Guides: What made you want to write Changing Laws, Saving Lives?
Randi McGinn: I didn’t think there was a book out that gave you a feel for what it’s like to be in a case as a lawyer. And so, it was written for lawyers who are just starting out, lawyers who are experienced (because it has advice for them too), and people who think they might want to be lawyers.
Randi McGinn Recommends Trial Guides Products
Randi: I want to encourage lawyers to read books. I feel like I’ve written my book maybe at the exact moment when people have stopped reading books. But there is so much of value particularly in the Trial Guides books: Twelve Heroes One Voice, Rick Friedman and Pat Malone’s Rules of the Road.
Inner Circle of Advocates member Jim Perdue's second book for trial lawyers, I Remember Atticus: Inspiring Stories Every Trial Lawyer Should Know, reminds you of the qualities of faith, freedom, equality, courage, and perseverance that exemplify the American spirit and embody our justice system.
I Remember Atticus is more than a collection of inspiring stories. It is also an indispensable resource for the trial lawyer seeking more effective persuasion techniques. Perdue gives generously of his wealth of trial experience to show how novices and veterans alike may use our core values for practical advocacy. He does so in a way that entertains, informs, and inspires.

Moe Levine practiced in New York in the 1940s to early 1970s, trying over 2000 civil trials. He was one of the first members of the Inner Circle of Advocates, and was close friends with Inner Circle founder Richard Grand. He helped create the concept of "qualitative damages" while helping Grand re-frame one of his cases by taking a concept from the Bible and using it as a way to describe the client's loss. (The case is discussed in the book.)
