Abstract:

Michael Tigar is widely regarded as one of the top trial lawyers alive today. In this new book Tigar reflects on the principles of action that are needed in litigation and in life. He draws compelling parallels between being a successful trial lawyer and living a purposeful life. Tigar examines the nine principles in detail: Courage; Rapport; Skepticism; Observation; Preparation; Structure; Candor; Empowerment; and Presentation. Unique and introspective, Tigar examines legal history and his own experiences to craft a message for all trial lawyers about the importance of their work and the principles that shape their lives.
