The Courtroom Words of Wisdom (WoW) app is the best app for trial lawyers to find on-point and persuasive quotes, proverbs, and aphorisms proven effective in courtrooms “from the backwoods to the big city”.
Today’s jurors have more complex layers of knowledge, opinions, and attitudes on more topics from more sources than ever before. And even within apparent ethnic, religious, socio-economic and political groups, a wide range of diversity exists.
So how does one find unifying themes and ideas that resonate with such a heterogeneous and often polarized group?
The answers can be found in this app.
I've collected these quotations from trial lawyers, judges, jurors, and others I’ve encountered over my 20+ year career consulting on big money cases across the country.
When skillfully used, the broad appeal of these words can tie an entire case together and unite a diverse jury around your theme, in simple, hard-to-argue-with terms. Because they speak to universal truths, they engage emotion and speak to the heart.
And they are just as effective when strategically placed in an appellate brief or critical motion to the Court--judges are people too!
