Trial Attorneys at the Nichols Law Firm Take Part in High Level Trial Skills Training with "The Lawyer Whisperer"

By Michael Nichols

Meridian Township trial attorneys Mike Nichols and Wendy Schiller-Nichols and Clinton County trial attorney Karen Phillips of the Nichols Law Firm just completed an intensive, high-level course on trial skills in Red Rock Nevada. The course was directed by Joshua Karton of Northern California. Karton is a writer-actor, who educates lawyers and other professionals on persuasive communication. Karton is known as "the lawyer-whisperer."  An example of Karton's work can be found:,d.b2I

DUI/DUID and forensic evidence litigator Mike Nichols said "this is the 3rd time I worked with Josh and it is so important to understand that little things make a difference. You have some important information to give a jury - it is key that they hear it and consider it in a case. Josh Karton helps keep me focused on the little things in telling a story that allow me to communicate it differently. I am convinced that it makes the difference when you do the little things between a good case and a not guilty verdict."

The lawyers at the Nichols Law Firm spend thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours teaching and learning substantive law and trial skills each year. The continuing legal education work that the Nichols Law Firm lawyers do is part of how the firm shows that it is committed to results.
