Michael Cowen - Trial Lawyer ,

Every trial lawyer should listen to this podcast.

Sari provides a unique gift that we trial lawyers need. She helps us learn to get out of our own way to better communicate with jurors. The shift in my mindset after working with Sari has not only made me better in trial, but it has also made trial more fun.

Great resource for personal injury attorneys

I’ve been listening to this podcast for months and cannot stress how much of a gem it is to personal injury attorneys. Sari’s podcast has changed the way I think about my cases and the way I frame the liability issues and my client’s narrative. I am so grateful for this podcast!
