Practice Law More Effectively With The Core Method Workshop

Upcoming Workshop Dates

August 23-26, 2018Register

This is a page for lawyers who want to be the best they can be, personally and professionally. It is my life goal to be a truth warrior—figuring out what is true and then standing up for it. There are many layers of truth—intuitive truth, emotional truth and logical truth. Logic is stressed by most lawyers. I believe logic is essential, but not sufficient to be successful.

To succeed as a trial lawyer, and a human being, it is necessary to be aware of intuitive and emotional truth. I have created the Cores Method, which works on the Warrior Core, Emotional Core and Logical Core to help find the Core Truth in a case. This includes a fusion of knowledge and skills I have learned from theater arts, martial arts and mindfulness training.

I have used this method to achieve recent notable settlements and verdicts, including recent settlements of $34 million and $12 million and wrongful death consortium verdicts of $13.2 million and $16 million.

Program Tuition includes:
Breakfast, lunch and take-home wooden practice swords (Bokken) used in workshop.
