Master the Art of the Story

The Coach for Lawyers, LLC, works with Litigation Insights to help lawyers master the art of the story. A good story told well keeps the audience interested and engaged. The key to persuasion is the ability to communicate the facts of a case in a way that is aligned with how people think and has emotional as well as intellectual appeal. A powerful case story can also serve as a road map for pretrial discovery and lay a foundation for persuasion in mediation and settlement negotiations.
