Educating the Trial Lawyer

Written by David Rosenthal, CCTLA First Vice President Originally published in the Fall 2020 issue of The Litigator, a quarterly magazine from the Capitol City Trial Lawyers Association.

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.

New! Moe Levine on Advocacy

New! Moe Levine on Advocacy

After over three years of work, Trial Guides is proud to announce the release of Moe Levine on Advocacy, the most comprehensive book ever released on Levine's lectures, trial transcripts and articles.

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.)
