“We are measuring success wrong. We measure by verdict size, not contribution, not impact. A truly successful lawyer is one who has laid it all out for an insignificant case, risked everything because it was the right thing to do. Measure by what kind of justice was given. Give the message that you care! A successful lawyer is a lawyer who honors real people.” – Gerry Spence
Few lawyers, by any measure, have been more successful than Spence. We are grateful for Spence’s commitment to educating trial lawyers.
Reading everything Spence has written is a prerequisite for this list.
