John Uustal – Try the Case in the Courtroom, Not the Case in the File

You have to be alive to the moment that can win you the case, and seize that opportunity.

In this episode of Trial Lawyers University, Dan Ambrose is joined by celebrity trial lawyer John Uustal. John focuses his practice on “cases that can’t be won for families that can’t afford to lose.” Dan and John discuss some of John’s biggest cases, including a $60 million verdict against General Motors early in his career–that General Motors actually paid in full with interest to the tune of $90 million. Tune in as John shares insight on how to leverage silence in the courtroom and why you need to be adaptable at trial.
