At first blush, the similarities between the theater and the courtroom might seem as disparate as the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning. But when you look beneath the surface, the connections between the two are strikingly similar.

At its core, theater is rooted in the idea that “art expresses human experience.” The same is true for trials. The very essence of a trial is a story — the story of a human experience. The goal of the attorney is to draw the jury into a re-constructed reality of past events such that they “see” what happened even though they were not present to witness the original event.

The attorney is the producer of that event as well as the writer, director, and the actor in that event. A play is also a live event with story at its core. The goal of the actor is to transform personal experience into a universal and recognizable form of expression that has the ability to change something in the spectator. Actors must guide the audience on a journey bringing with them their minds and hearts.

I've become fascinated with how the creative world of acting overlaps with the courtroom and how the connections between these two disciplines can be exploited for the good of my clients. This has become my life’s work. It has ignited something inside me. It exhilarates me in ways that I cannot describe. Come join me on this wild ride.
