If you read the title, you likely thought about it for a millisecond and formulated an answer or opinion. Whether you realize it or not, you became an active participant in my attempt to communicate. And not only did you actively participate, you did it of your own volition: I didn’t tell you to participate; it just organically happened. The use of rhetorical questions dates back centuries. We see examples throughout the Bible (“Who made me…
In this week’s episode of “Bull,” Dr. Bull and team are representing Trent Bolton, a retired FBI-agent-turned-bounty-hunter whose first gig goes wildly off the rails: He finds his mark, threatens him with a gun, knocks him unconscious, zip-ties his hands and tosses him into his trunk for a secure delivery to the bail bondsman. Unfortunately, the guy in the trunk—Michael Cole—isn’t the actual target. Oops. Upon learning of his mistake, Bolton takes the unconscious Cole…
Technology is an absolute given in the courtroom. No matter your venue, jurors expect to see multimedia, digital images, and a big screen (or at least a decent sized flat screen monitor). I always make a recommendation to my clients to pony up the extra cost for trial technology, and while some balk in the beginning, once they see everything fall into place, they readily appreciate the added value. In fact, I have a client…

This episode, we find Dr. Bull consulting in the good ol’ Lone Star State on a custody matter. He and his team – lead attorney Benny Colón and former Homeland Security agent Taylor Rentzel – are representing grandparents who are suing for full custody of their grandchildren after the death of their daughter. SPOILER ALERT. If you’re a fan of the show and want to watch “Don’t Say a Word” (S3E18) before learning about all…
“What kind of story can we tell the jury that makes it OK to ambush a caseworker and a trooper?” This is the QOTD for Dr. Jason Bull, Benny Colon and the entire team at Trial Analysis Corp. They have jumped on board to assist in the defense of a 16-year-old boy who is on trial for murder. But, as always, this isn’t just your run-of-the-mill murder case. It has wrinkles. Lucas Schweiger, the young man on…

In the age of smartphones and 24/7 access to media, jurors who conduct outside research are a hot topic in the legal community. And if you’re defense counsel for the notorious Joaquín Guzmán, aka “El Chapo,” it is the hot topic. After a three-month federal jury trial in Brooklyn, New York, El Chapo was recently convicted of drug trafficking, weapons violations, and operating an ongoing criminal enterprise. He now faces a life sentence without the possibility…
I have a confession: I had no idea that Chunk Palmer was attending law school, did you? If there was any doubt, it certainly cleared up this week because he represented his first client. All by himself. As a “student defender.” Without an actual law license. Or a bar card. In federal court. Fighting charges involving copyright infringement and selling counterfeit merchandise. Dang. Nothing like whetting your teeth on a federal criminal trial. To be…
Litigation is grueling in the best of circumstances. But even with strong legal claims, smooth discovery, and compelling evidentiary issues, one of the most difficult aspects of litigation is managing expectations and making unpopular decisions. Jury consultants, including the Hollywood-created ones, invest their blood, sweat and tears into helping clients prevail. And many times, we offer our sage counsel by providing the trial team, the end client, and witnesses with a much-needed dose of reality.…
