Leizerman, with Zen master Jay Rinsen Weik, interlaces Zen and mindfulness exercises with practical case examples to demonstrate how being a Zen lawyer means being a better lawyer. Leizerman’s comprehensive approach shows how mindfulness brings greater clarity and persuasion to your cases. His examples and exercises walk you through ways to elicit game-changing witness testimony during depositions and trial, more effectively deal with difficult judges or opposing counsel, improve damages, and use proven tools to show the jury why a just verdict for your client is the right thing to do. This book is a must-read for any lawyer who seeks to make the world a better place, one case at a time.
