Unlike many other attorneys, I devoted five years of my life to my legal education. While in law school, I worked for a firm, studying under an experienced trial attorney. This permitted me to make the most of my time in law school.
I devoted tens of thousands of hours to studying trial attorneys. Men such as Irving Younger, Llyod Paul Stryker, Melvin Belli, Gerry Spence, Sir Thomas Erskine, and, my late friend, F. Lee Bailey. Every book that each man had written, I consumed. Each old, grainy, black-and-white video I could locate, was dissected. Each encyclopedia, quotation, trial, and transcript, was analyzed and stored. From their remarkable experience and wealth of knowledge, I began building my own skillset.
