Law Mentoring: Acting uncivil can hurt you in the pocketbook!Nov 14, 2023
Acting Uncivil Can Hurt You in the Pocketbook!
In the video above, I discuss how a trial lawyer who recently won his employment case was punished with a substantially reduced attorney fee award because of his uncivil conduct. Don't do what he did!
I help California lawyers get excellent results in four ways:
- I serve as a mediator, arbitrator and referee with ADR Services, Inc. conducting hearings (Zoom and in-person) throughout California. I relentlessly pursue closure as a mediator. As an arbitrator and referee, I preside over relaxed and friendly hearings, carefully review all admitted evidence, and issue fair and impartial decisions. I handle business, employment, insurance (bad faith, coverage, UIM), probate, real property, and tort (elder abuse, legal malpractice, medical malpractice, personal injury, product liability, and wrongful death) cases.
- I provide Master Lawyer Mentoring™ to train lawyers to become excellent trial lawyers and help them prepare for trial, and train associates to quickly become excellent lawyers.
- I publish California Case Summaries™, preparing one-paragraph summaries, organized by legal topic, of every new civil case published in California each month, each quarter and every year giving subscribers a competitive advantage to win more cases.
- In my Trial Alchemy™ podcast I interview outstanding plaintiff and defense civil trial lawyers, who are members of the American Board of Trial Lawyers, about what works, and what doesn't work in civil jury trials. This is a great way for less experienced lawyers to learn from the trial masters.
I help attorneys and their clients throughout California as a mediator, arbitrator and referee at ADR Services, Inc. I handle business, commercial, employment, insurance (bad faith, coverage, UIM), probate, real property, and tort (elder abuse, legal malpractice, medical malpractice, personal injury, product liability and wrongful death) cases. I've been a California civil trial lawyer since 1980 and a member of ABOTA since 1995. I've represented both plaintiffs and defendants in a wide variety of civil cases including the areas listed above.
