I know you don't want to annoy jurors (at least I hope not.)
But you may be doing these 7 things and not know that jurors hate them.
The only thing you need to win the hearts and minds of jurors is you.
You don't need these seven things, so stop doing them.
Give the podcast a listen to find out the seven things you're doing that jurors hate. You can listen on iTunes or on your preferred podcast app.
Can you accurately read the body language of jurors?
Depends what you're trying to "read."
There are two things you can read when it comes to juror body language.
You don't need to memorize hundreds of nonverbal cues in order to do this either.
Give the podcast a listen to find out how to read body language and let go of your stories about what it means.
Are you wasting your mistakes?
Look, I know you make them, everyone does.
So let's not waste an opportunity to learn, ok?
You waste your mistakes when you beat yourself up and quit.
Mistakes are an opportunity to learn and grow, but only if you know how to use them to your advantage.
Give the podcast a listen to find out how to stop wasting your mistakes and start moving toward greatness.
You should always make eye contact, right?
We attempt to continually make eye contact because of what we think it means.
But what if you were wrong about what eye contact communicates nonverbally?
Give the podcast a listen to find out what eye contact really means, and how you can be more systematic.
You're told you need to be authentic in court, but what does that really mean?
Authenticity is bigger than you think. Being "uncomfortable" for example, is not the same as being inauthentic.
But authenticity can also get you in trouble.
Give the podcast a listen to find out what authenticity is and why it's such a big deal.
Have you been told you need to build trust with jurors to get them to vote your way?

How do you measure your success at trial?
If you’re like most attorneys, when you win you think you’re a great attorney and when you lose you think you aren’t.
Losing has NOTHING to do with how “good” you are.
Give the podcast a listen and learn how to let go of believing that losing means you’re a bad trial attorney, and instead learn how to embrace the process.
Why do you go to trial?
To win, of course!
If we didn’t think we could win, we’d settle the case.
However, believing that winning is the only acceptable outcome can really derail you at trial. You might be surprised to learn why.
Give the podcast a listen and learn how to let go of believing that winning is the only acceptable outcome.
