David Berg, one of America's leading trial lawyers, knows how to win cases. And he knows how to tell a story. In the newly updated The Trial Lawyer: What It Takes To Win, Second Edition, Berg puts both skills to dazzling use in an engaging and instructive guide to winning at trial, illustrating each trial skill with excerpts from his own cases and those of trial lawyers he admires. In this edition, you will learn not only from Berg's cases but also how his close friend, the late Joe Jamail, won a $10.5 billion verdict in Pennzoil v. Texaco.
Berg likes to say that the trial lawyer who will become a master of the art of trying cases, is the lawyer who asks, "How can I get better?" - a question Berg himself has never quit asking. Many of those answers will be found on these pages as Berg, who has tried virtually every kind of civil and criminal case, shares his deeply psychological and practical insights into each trial skill. This second edition is quintessential Berg - colorful, insightful, funny and instructive - and difficult to put down. It will keep you reading - and make you a better trial lawyer.
