Do What is Right, Let the Consequences Follow
I believe we must do what is right, let the consequences follow. The challenge is that sometimes the consequences are negative. Twenty years ago I had an experience that had me saying, "I never felt more humiliated for doing the right thing." A friend of mine summarized it differently: "Young you big dog! You can't call yourself a trial lawyer until some asshole judge has put your butt in jail for contempt!"
I didn't know if my friend Rob Gill from Louisiana was trying to comfort me, teach me, or was lying to me. I had called to ask Rob, a criminal defense specialist I became friends with in 1996 when we both attended Gerry Spence's Trial Lawyer's College for advice on defending a contempt of court.

On October 11, 2014, I will present the first session of my six-part webinar on jury selection that I call, "Taking the Dire out of Voir Dire." The sessions will cost $97 each, but if you are one of the first 25 to enroll for the first session, you will get first webinar for half price.

Go to and sign up today.
Thank you,
