Core Method Workshops

Join us at the Core Method Workshop
May 11 – May 14, 2017
The Radisson Hotel
at the University of Toledo

The Core Method Workshop is an innovative and interactive program crafted to propel your practice to a greater level of success and fulfillment.  It is for trial lawyers who are looking for the next step in improving their practice and trial skills.  Delivering distinctively different concepts that go beyond what you’ve learned as a trial lawyer, this program will give you tangible ways to to re-tool the skills and techniques of litigation.

“The Core Method Workshop was a truly eye-opening experience.  You have the unique opportunity to learn effective communication and presentation strategies from a talented and gifted actor, as well as Zen and meditation techniques from a true master of both.  You will quickly see how Michael has combined these methods to obtain incredible results in the courtroom.  You will learn through a gifted trial lawyer how to tell you client’s story, how to connect with the jury, and how to empower the jury to obtain the verdict your client deserves.  No matter where you are in your practice or your career, you will leave the seminar as a better attorney and a better advocate for your clients.”

It’s all in the eyes

Studies in cognitive neuroscience have shown that fear, surprise, happiness and other emotions trigger the amygdala in the brain based on the the amount of white in the eyes. While the orbitofrontal cortex and other parts of the brain decode complex facial expressions, the amygdala is quick and simple and responds based on just one thing--how much eye white is showing.
