This book review was banned by Anonymous Amazon SS Gestapo! Do you find anything wrong with this book review? Is it offensive? Does it attack anyone? Is it hate speech? Unlawful censors of Free Speech. We will discuss that later. For now, here is my review of one of the book written by the author who is one of the greatest trial lawyers who ever lived, Gerry Spence.
When a country boy from Wyoming walks into a big city courtroom all eyes are on him, especially if he is wearing a buckskin fringe jacket which is as rare as the man wearing it.
Gerry Spence has been practicing law for nearly three-quarters of a century, longer than most people have lived. And he has been a consistent winner in the courtroom. In his entire career he only lost but one case, and as far as I know he later won that one on appeal. Regardless, his astonishing track record as the most successful trial lawyer in American history is something one would want to read about and learn how he does it.
The key was a jury trial. And then once he had the jury captive in his country-gentleman charisma, his storytelling, which he used in nearly every case, was his secret weapon to winnable jury verdicts. Everyone that he ever tried.
I have read just about all of Gerry Spence’s remarkable books. This one I purchased as a Kindle eBook edition, but I will someday add the hardcover to my Gerry Spence home library.
Gerry Spence is first a storyteller and then a trial lawyer. His storytelling and trusting country gentleman manner are the keys that won him and his clients large jury awards. His ability to master the human behavior of the jury is what made him what he is, the Master of Law and Justice.
Gerry Spence is a man of many talents. The one talent that is greater than his ability to win trials is his ability to teach others how he does it and how they can do it, too. That begins with this book, his law college, and his method teachings.
A mountain of knowledge can be tapped online in a wealth of sources from YouTube video interviews and speeches to his online blogs and educational centers and his many books available in eBook, print paperback or hardcover or audio. Go get your own, and win!
It’s not all about legal stuff and law. Gerry Spence is a man of many great talents. His philosophy is contagious. He teaches us how establish self-respect and condition ourselves for public drama. He teaches us how to get into the trenches of legal war yet maintain our composure while telling a compelling story from start to finish. He teaches us how to paint the picture of the victim while winning the hearts of the jury who will win your case and award you damages for your loss, pain and suffering and more.
Gerry Spence wins, and he wins big. This book, Win Your Case, explains how he does it.
Win Your Case is required reading for anyone engaged in litigation. This book is the beginning of the education any litigator needs to study. ~ Cliff Harrison
“Without freedom of thought there can be no such thing as wisdom; and no such thing as public liberty, without freedom of speech.” –Benjamin Franklin
After newly a year of closure because of litigation I decided to reopen the blog since freedom of speech has no tolerance for censorship.
“There is never a shortage anywhere of lawyers eager to attack the First Amendment, as though it were nothing more than a clause in a lease from a crooked slumlord.” ~Kurt Vonnegut
I closed the blog due to ongoing litigation. I have more active litigation now, than I did then. Most trial lawyers recommend a run silent, run deep social media mode once litigation is started. The reason is your opponent’s lawyers and insurance people will scrutinize your social media accounts so that they can find anything that you say and use it against you. Let them. I stand my ground. I was born with inalienable rights that no power can take away.
I wanted peace. I offered peace from the beginning. I gave them many chances for peace. They wanted war. Then so be it. It is war they shall have. I will give them a war they cannot win.
I was born under God, in a free nation that is symbolic for its unalienable rights carved into its constitution and documents of creed that provide the framework for the basic laws that govern all its citizens and the people of the world.
I was not born under the red flag with the yellow hammer and sickle that announces Communist-Marxism, nor will I bow down to it. Or, any other symbol of tyranny and oppression.
“…Man did not enter into society to become worst than he was before, nor to have fewer rights than he had before, but to have those rights better secured. His natural rights are the foundation of all his civil rights.” –Thomas Paine, The Rights of Man
