About the Book
Michael Tigar is widely regarded as one of the top trial lawyers alive today. In this new book Tigar reflects on the principles of action that are needed in litigation and in life. He draws compelling parallels between being a successful trial lawyer and living a purposeful life. Tigar examines the nine principles in detail: Courage; Rapport; Skepticism; Observation; Preparation; Structure; Candor; Empowerment; and Presentation. Unique and introspective, Tigar examines legal history and his own experiences to craft a message for all trial lawyers about the importance of their work and the principles that shape their lives.
What Others Are Saying
"Every once in a while, our profession is blessed with a lawyer who is touched by greatness. John Adams, Abraham Lincoln, Clarence Darrow, Irving Younger, and Edward Bennett Williams (Michael Tigar's own mentor) are in this distinguished company. Michael Tigar is our generation's contribution to this short list of the giants of our profession. He is the one among us who has taken on the impossible cases -- and won a good many of them. In NINE PRINCIPLES, he shares not just the "how" of his own amazing courtroom achievements, but also the "how to" of practical tips that all of us can implement and, even more importantly, the "why" of the importance of trial attorneys who are willing to fight for their clients' rights, even against staggering odds. Every lawyer and everyone else who cherishes the special role of trial lawyers in our society should read this book."
