Trial Guides is proud to present this video of two of the greatest trial lawyers in American history: Gerry Spence and Paul Luvera.

Gerry Spence is a living legend in the legal field, and one of the most important lawyers in US history.  He had more multi-million dollar verdicts without an intervening loss than any other lawyer in the United States. He is also the author of several best selling books for the public on the topic of law. This is one of Gerry Spence's only publicly available videos.

Paul Luvera is also one of the leading trial lawyers in the United States. During his career, Luvera obtained record jury verdicts of $41 million in Washington, $44 million in Oregon, and a $29 million in Idaho. He was selected to act as lead trial counsel for the State of Washington in a two-and-a-half-month jury trial against the tobacco industry which ended in a record settlement of $700 million. This is one of Paul Luvera's only publicly available videos.

In this unique video of both lawyers, Spence and Luvera teach you the secrets that have propelled their legendary courtroom victories.

These trial legends discuss:

  • The power of being authentic
  • Using proven methods, including methods in Polarizing the Case, David Ball on Damages 3 and Rules of the Road™
  • Their secrets for voir dire
  • Creative ways to try soft-tissue cases
  • Different methods of arguing damages depending upon the case facts and the size of the expected verdict
  • Three things you must discuss with the jury about damages
  • Why you should never evaluate your case based on other lawyers’ settlements and verdicts
  • Trying cases with difficult judges
  • The greatest gifts and worst mistakes of their careers
  • And much more 

The information on this video is timeless, and built upon decades of dedication to being truly great trial lawyers.
