  • Comfort Zones, Shmumfort Zones

    This past fourth of July weekend, I got to thinking about all the things that I did this year that were out of my comfort zone. Things like … • Starting a podcast where I interviewed celebrity guests in the entrepreneurial and public speaking spaces. • Taking on some incredibly challenging cases in the state and federal courts. • Beginning my journey into acting as a full-time student at one of New Yorks most renowned acting conservatories. • Running a half-marathon. I could go on with the list of things that used to be outside my comfort zone that are now a part of my daily routine. And if I had to guess, I bet you could too. The more thought I gave to “comfort zone,” the more I realized that everything I’ve accomplished that had deep meaning to me and that gave me a sense of accomplishment at one time lied outside my comfort zone.

  • How I Brainstorm a Case

    I brainstorm my cases using the steps below. This is merely one way of brainstorming a case. There are many different ways to brainstorm a case as there are lawyers who try them. Share Pin http://www.theaterofthecourtroom.com/how-i-brainstorm-a-case/#YnJhaW5zdG9ybV8 This blueprint should be viewed through the lens of a criminal defense attorney. I always begin by asking myself, “What facts do I need to establish during the course of the trial in order to make the kind of arguments that I need to make at closing that are consistent with innocence?” Or, more specifically, “What facts do I need to establish during the course of the trial in order to buttress my defense so as to make it airtight?” Brainstorming requires a lot of “free association,” which can be torture for those who are perfectionists and prefer structure.

  • THE ACTOR’S VOW BY ELIA KAZAN

    The Actor’s Vow by Elia Kazan captures the essence of what many of us long for in life. I was introduced to it when I began my journey into acting and find it to be a great source of inspiration whenever I’m feeling discouraged or emotionally drained. Share Pin http://www.theaterofthecourtroom.com/the-actors-vow-by-elia-kazan/#S2F6YW4taW50ZXJ It helps to lift up my spirits after a long day spent in court absorbing “blows” while fighting zealously for my clients. I hope that it can help you to see the humanity in what we, as lawyers, are called to do each and every time we step foot in the courtroom. “I will take my rightful place on stage and I will be myself. I am not a cosmic orphan. I have no reason to be timid. I will respond as I feel; awkwardly, vulgarly, but respond.   I will have my throat op
