What “Goliath” Can Teach a Lawyer About Practicing Law

Published on Apr 5, 2019 at 9:46 am in Fun Stuff.

During our first week of law school, we were told by a professor that law school would ruin all of our favorite legal tv shows and movies.  The professor told us that we’d watch the shows and realize just how far from reality they are.  I agree with that — some shows are pretty far fetched and they emphasize things that just wouldn’t happen in real life (you’ll rarely see a jury consultant in any of my trials like in “Bull”).  Yet, there’s also some things we all see in legal (or non-legal) shows or read in legal and non-legal books that lawyers can use everyday.

Going through law school can cause funnel vision for many lawyers.  They think the world operates one way, when in reality it sometimes works a lot like the things you see in TV shows and read in books.  After graduating from law school I realized I’d been living in a bubble — I knew some latin phrases and knew how the law worked, but fancy latin phrases and all the legal knowledge in the world won’t get you far with many of the juries I’ve appeared in front of. After passing the bar exam I had all the legal requirements necessary to practice law: A law degree and a law license.  What I’ve learned, and what many other attorneys have learned is that those two things will only get you so far if you want to be a good trial lawyer.

How the Fundamentals of Baseball and Practicing Law Are Similar

Published on Mar 29, 2019 at 9:00 am in Fun Stuff.

Happy Opening Day 2019!  Every year I get excited about baseball — America’s pastime.  Whether it’s watching the boys of summer on TV or the sound of metal bats clinking balls at the little league fields, baseball is back and summer is near.

Anyone who has played backyard baseball as a child has envisioned him/herself standing at the plate in this scenario: Bottom of the ninth, tie game, two outs, full count.  The pitch is thrown and you swing — Crack! goes your bat as it hits the leather of the ball — “Going going gone!” You run around the bases pumping your fist as you hit the game-winning home run to the cheer of the crowd.
