Make Your Case Story Come Alive


Your facts are more persuasive if they're packaged as a story.

Want fact finders to find in your favor? Tell a good story.

Your client is depending on you to fight for them and walk away with a victory. You know your facts, but do you know how to organize them into a narrative? You’re standing up and speaking, but are you using your voice and body persuasively?

David can show you how.

He has worked with hundreds of lawyers for over a decade, taking them from nervous to confident to commanding - all while staying grounded in a persuasive narrative in plain language.
