Telling your story

What trial lawyers do is tell stories — true stories. A client’s story is found not just in opening statement or closing argument, but also in the direct and cross-examination of witnesses. I have, since long before I was a lawyer, studied the art of story telling.

Some time ago I was invited to tell a story at the Story Project in Manitou Springs. A delightful young woman, Michelle Mras, was in the audience. She hosts a weekly radio show in Colorado Springs. She invited me to be a guest on her show. It will air on Friday, 15 June, at noon on KCMJ, 93.9FM. The original story, which I call “Eternity Winks,” is linked here.
