What Legal Leaders Are Saying
— Pam Stuart, Esq.
I think you should consider it a great compliment that you can assemble a room full of experienced trial lawyers who hang on every word of your wisdom month after month. Your talents are immense. You truly have rethought and revolutionized the way lawyers try cases. Irving Younger is not only turning over in his grave—he may have to rise again from the dead to save the Ten Commandments! You are wonderful to share your giant-slaying techniques with colleagues.
— Bernard Solnik, Esq.
In addition to substantive learning, listening and watching Pat Malone was like watching a great ball-handler show me the moves I’ll one day make fluidly once I’m a great ball-handler too! ‘See, when the defenseman does this, I can pass the ball behind my back, or dribble it between my legs, or spin it like this, or like that…!’ It was really fun to think about! Once again, Pat, thanks for a great seminar!
— Peter Masciola, Esq.
Powerful, pragmatic practice tips that every civil litigator should know. Pat Malone’s insightful and thematic cross-examinations pointers will wreak havoc with opponents and win juries over to your side. Civil justice for your clients can be found in the defendant’s breach of the Rules of the Road. Mr. Malone shows you the secret map.
— Tara Candela, Esq.
Pat Malone’s Rules of the Road seminar is NOT to be missed by any plaintiff’s lawyer who wants to start a case with a strong advantage from day one. His technique can be used from formulating a complaint through [to] the end of trial. And as a new lawyer, I particularly recommend it to other new lawyers before they have a chance to form any bad habits.
— John Lowe, Esq.
Great presentation. After lecturing on these subjects myself for over thirty-five years, I still pick up great pointers every time I hear Malone.
— George L. Garrow, Jr., Esq.
As a trial lawyer with many years of experience, I’ve enjoyed Pat Malone’s Rules of the Road series. He does a great job of showing how the Rules can be used to gain a competitive advantage in your cases. Both new and seasoned lawyers will be helped by this DVD series.
