Complaints and briefs


Facts don't have to be boring. We'll show you how to translate the items of your complaint or brief into a story that captures the human experience at its heart—and the attention of that 25-year-old clerk who'll be the first to read it.   

 

Opening and closing arguments


When it's your turn to talk, what you do is as important as what you say. We'll work with you to craft a story that's gripping and persuasive, and couple it with practical, effective techniques for connecting with an audience and commanding a room.

 

Client deposition, testimony, and allocution prep


Your client's story is their—and your—greatest asset. We'll work directly with them, under your guidance, to identify and structure the elements that resonate with your audience, no matter where you are in the process.
