Powerful Writing Techniques to Help You Persuade Judges and Win Clients
On Thursday, October 7 from 1:00-2:00 p.m. Eastern, I’ll be presenting my popular program, Powerful Writing Techniques to Help You Persuade Judges and Win Clients, as a complimentary webinar.
The ability to write forcefully and effectively is critical to your success as a lawyer. In this webinar, lawyers will learn to write more persuasively by using the same powerful techniques that copywriters have relied on for years. Discover what these techniques are and how to apply them in both briefs and client-focused writing.
Attorneys who attend this webinar will learn about:
- The greatest challenge your writing must overcome to persuade readers to take a desired action
- Basic concepts underlying all effective persuasive writing—ignore these and you’re sunk
- How to write a compelling brief that the judge just can’t put down
- The role of emotion in jurisprudence and how to trigger the reader’s emotions
- The things readers absolutely hate—and how to avoid them
- How to deal with objections to your position
- Closing the deal: conclusions and calls to action
This webinar is part of a series of complimentary webinars from Avvo, a website that offers ratings and profiles for 90% of U.S. lawyers, as well as client reviews, peer reviews and attorney disciplinary records. The website currently covers all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Two more Opportunities to Learn About the Benefits Solos and Small Firm Lawyers Can Reap by Working With Contract Lawyers
If you missed last week’s How to Work With Contract Lawyers to Save Your Firm Money, Increase Profits and Get Your Life Back webinar, you haven’t missed the boat: in the next few weeks, I’ll be talking about contract lawyering both live in New York City and online.
On Tuesday, October 5 from 6:30-8:30 p.m., I’ll be co-presenting Minimize Growing Pains—Expand Your Small Firm Practice with the Help of Contract Attorneys at the New York City Bar Association, 42 W. 44th St. in Manhattan.
Attend this program to learn how contract lawyers can help you achieve work/life balance by providing a safety valve when you’re swamped with work, increase professional satisfaction by enabling you to focus on those legal tasks you find most rewarding and increase profits without adding to your firm’s overhead.
The program will be moderated by Alla Roytberg, Director of the NYC Bar’s Small Law Firm Center. I’ll be joined on the panel by Edgar De Leon of De Leon & Associates, PLLC, who will discuss his experience working with contract lawyers.
A wine and cheese reception from 6:30-7:15 will be followed by the program from 7:15-8:30.
