If a young lawyer came to me and wanted advice on how to best prepare for the courtroom I would say first, get yourself some trials. Every case out there doesn’t have to be a multimillion-dollar case and the way you develop your skills is twofold. One, it’s to try cases and two, its continuing education. Even after 25 years, I’m constantly going to classes, developing my skills. Bill Wood’s been in practice nearly 50 years he still goes to continuing education, always, always trying to improve our skills.
