Win Your Case

How to Present, Persuade, and Prevail--Every Place, Every Time

Gerry Spence is perhaps America's most renowned and successful trial lawyer, a man known for his deep convictions and his powerful courtroom presentations when he argues on behalf of ordinary people. Frequently pitted against teams of lawyers thrown against him by major corporate or government interests, he has never lost a criminal case and has not lost a civil jury trial since l969. In Win Your Case, Spence shares a lifetime of experience teaching you how to win in any arena-the courtroom, the boardroom, the sales call, the salary review, the town council meeting-every venue where a case is to be made against adversaries who oppose the justice you seek. Relying on the successful courtroom methods he has developed over more than half a century, Spence shows both lawyers and laypersons how you can win your cases as he takes you step by step through the elements of a trial-from jury selection, the opening statement, the presentation of witnesses, their cross-examinations, and finally to the closing argument itself. Spence teaches you how to prepare yourselves for these wars. Then he leads you through the new, cutting-edge methods he uses in discovering the story in which you form the evidence into a compelling narrative, discover the point of view of the decision maker, anticipate and answer the counterarguments, and finally conclude the case with a winning final argument. To make a winning presentation, you are taught to prepare the power-person (the jury, the judge, the boss, the customer, the board) to hear your case. You are shown that your emotions, and theirs, are the source of your winning. You learn the power of your own fear, of honesty and caring and, yes, of love. You are instructed on how to role-play through the use of the psychodramatic technique, to both discover and tell the story of the case, and, at last, to pull it all together into the winning final argument. Whether you are presenting your case to a judge, a jury, a boss, a committee, or a customer, Win Your Case is an indispensable guide to success in every walk of life, in and out of the courtroom.

Amerika 1920. Harriet Sherwood hat ihre Grossmutter Bebe immer bewundert. Aber sie hätte nie gedacht, dass ihre Entscheidung, in die Fussstapfen ihres grossen Vorbilds zu treten und für soziale Gerechtigkeit zu kämpfen, sie ins Gefängnis bringen würde. Genauso wenig, wie sie erwartet hätte, dass ausgerechnet ihr alter Widersacher aus Kindertagen, Tommy O'Reilly, sie eines Tages verhaften würde. In ihrer Gefängniszelle hat Harriet jede Menge Zeit darüber nachzudenken, wie es bloss zu ihrer Verhaftung hat kommen können. Wie ist sie zu dem Menschen geworden, der sie heute ist? In ihr steigen lange vergessene Erinnerungen an die drei Generationen Frauen auf, die sie geprägt haben: Ihre Urgrossmutter Hannah, die Sklaven bei der Flucht half, ihre Grossmutter Bebe, eine treibende Kraft in der Abstinenzlerbewegung, und ihre Mutter Lucy. Alle drei Frauen besassen eine ungeheure innere Kraft - und einen tiefen Glauben an Gott. Kann ihr Vermächtnis Harriet helfen zu erkennen, worauf es im Leben wirklich ankommt? Lynn Austin ist verheiratet, hat drei Kinder und lebt in Illinois. Ihre grosse Familie, die vier Generationen umfasst, ist ebenso Aufgabe wie Inspiration für sie. Wenn ihr nach dem Tagesgeschäft noch Zeit bleibt, ist sie als Vortragsreisende unterwegs und widmet sich der Schriftstellerei.

Im Wald lauert das Böse »Wäre die zwölfjährige Annie Taylor an diesem regnerischen Aprilnachmittag nicht auf die Idee gekommen, mit ihrem kleinen Bruder William angeln zu gehen, wäre es ihr erspart geblieben, die Exekution zu sehen und den Mördern in die Augen blicken zu müssen. Aber sie war nun einmal wütend auf ihre Mutter gewesen.« So beginnt eine gnadenlose Hetzjagd, denn die Kinder sind fortan auf der Flucht vor den skrupellosen Mördern, während die Mutter voller Verzweiflung nach ihnen sucht. C. J. Box gewann den Anthony Award, den französischen Prix Calibre 38, den Macavity Award, den Gumshoe Award, den Barry Award und wurde darüber hinaus für den wichtigsten amerikanischen Krimipreis, den Edgar Award, und den L.A.Times Book Prize nominiert.
