Three C's for the Seasoned Trial Lawyer
by Bishop Cynthia Bolden-Gardner, J.D.

Despite three years of law school, internships, and employment, it was clear to me that the key to success was still missing.

After hundreds of complex trials and nights and weekends at my desk, I discovered what it was. It can be summed up as a control strategy; but it goes much deeper than that. It is the instinct, the fire in the belly, the fight or flight that is the difference between winning and losing. How determined are you to win, and how far are you ethically willing to go.

Three C's for the Seasoned Trial Lawyer covers three critical areas: (1) the ability to assess and perceive the courtroom environment and how to take over and control that environment to your advantage and your opponent's disadvantage; (2) how to effectively utilize underutilized staff such as investigators, paralegals, and clerks to gain the edge; (3) client control: interviewing the client, determining what makes him/her 'tick', frequent debriefing so that they are nonreactive to provocative court and custody staff. Once these items are in check, victory is inevitable. Read and see.
