Trial Lessons from Atticus Finch
Posted by Alex Miller on Jul 28, 2009
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. With inspiration from Atticus Finch of To Kill a Mockingbird, learn of a prophet who divines a rule of legal procedure so fundamental today that many lawyers do not know its ancient origins. Understand bravery with the juror who led his co-jurors to defy the authorities and go to jail rather than deliver a false verdict. Realize heroism with the judge who sets aside an unjust verdict despite his community of bigotry. Recognize perseverance from a small group of taxpayers who, despite trying circumstances, transforms equality in America.
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.
