"We have an inherent bias as human beings: we favor people that are like us. So I always seat my client in the the audience, never at the plaintiff's table. I don't want her to look like part of the legal team to the jury." - Alex Wheeler, Complex Litigation & Class Action, R. Rex Parris Law Firm #lawquote #law #attorney #lawschool #legalcounselor

"I work on my poker face, ask the key questions sandwiched by very innocuous questions. I can't prevent a very well prepared lawyer form undertsnding where I'm going, but I can certainly do my best by the way I don't change my intonation, by just matter-of-factly going from one topic to another." - Steven M. Schultz, Employment Law / In-House Counsel / Law Professor, Pepperdine University

The first job a lawyer has is to break through the barrier in the judge's mind." - Judith Wood, Immigration & Asylum Advocate, Human Rights Project #lawyer #lawquote #attorney #immigration #humanrights #immigrationattorney
