How to Speak like a Veteran Lawyer in 11 minutes


Why do you think that some attorneys are
begging for clients at a $125
dollars an hour when others are charging thousands or whatever
they want, because they know that regardless of what they cost, their schedules
are gonna be booked. Well its the same reason that there’s a
large variance in price in any product in the free market…
because there’s a huge variance in quality! As an attorney your duties are to research and present the case to the jury and the
courtroom. In this video I wanna talk to you about
some best practices on how to optimize your presentation to give you
the best chance for success. I’m Barron Cruz and this is the charisma
matrix. Swoooosh (Sound) The courtroom is a stage, and a principle that I what you have in
the back in your mind the entirity of your time spent there is the “TLH triangle,” and what that is its three adjectives that describe how
you always want to be being perceived by the jury and everyone else the courtroom. And that’s as trustworthy as a likable and as high status. And in that
trustworthiness component comes an element of intelligence, because oftentimes those
things are seen kinda hand in hand. So how do we do that well some other
basics our body language we want to be be a recombinant cool
deliberately in our body language we were already in
tation typically to be the jury some time the judge but also early in a court case we wanna
show that were competent or any ever when the courtroom work of a
person we’re not afraid of anything so we’re going to take a short
amount of time already all around the courtroom just for making you know quick phrases
just begun to show that note so consciously your veterinary better before you’re not
afraid not intimidated now when it comes to orienting to the
jury you do you want to spend a lot of your
time or unit 2 a.m. but this leads me to the next point in
that I contact what you wanna be making consistent eye
contact with the jury you don’t wanna make anyone feel
discomfort I’m comparable with your presence and by
focusing on one person for too long staring at them in the jury that’s going to create that so be sure
that when you or addressing the jury in your body language is very oriented
to them don’t be too intense don’t be too intimidated by staring at one person
for too long now you’re torn out he wants to be if or components the majority the time and the balkan those components is a
competent commanding tone hourly you got everything figured out you know
exactly what happened in your gonna explain it to them but some other little plotters of
tonality that you want to work in is interested surprise did and empathetic and I’m gonna get more GM
perfect peace and the surprise peace as we continue
the way you express your emotions the courtroom is hugely impact the in
swaying to the jury everyone else in it we want to use our emotions to our
favor to magnify the attention which is good
for ourselves and for our case and to dissipate in quickly remove
attention when it’s not so let’s use an example the Seattle I’m
questioning he say in your opinion did your passenger know
the narcotics run the truck aces no I don’t think he did your
responses in your opinion did your passenger okay right on to the next one Knoll reaction
almost as if he didn’t answer the question always it never happened because we want
to dissipate that right to answer was not to our best shot let’s say you say in your opinion did your passion you
know there are cars in the truck he says yeah I think he did really so he knowingly got into your car knowing that our culture in the truck
okay so what you’re doing by expressing all
this emotion when you get a response that you want assuming you the prosecution you are do two things number one people just to
me and with emotion levels are high just natural breast zone and we’re creatures
a deletion so we see something out of place a high
emotion we zone it we want the jury want to judge what ever want to hone in on
that but number two were taking advantage up mirror neurons sought nearly runs do in
the jury and everyone else’s human beings is they
help us relate to other people by creating the same emotion in ass is
what we see other people experiencing so when I hear that his passenger new
their cocks restaurant where he got in I’m should huge surprise actually why
would he get it he the passenger new by doing that
you’re going to create the same emotions in the jury as you’re experiencing by
doing at a very powerful piece thanks to all the different ways that you can use
that the courtroom by transfer in your state by transfer
your emotional feelings to the jury this is what you want
because we all know the people make the ball the decision swayed on emotions
ok a little tip here and this is actually very powerful in a
week or a brother situations but specifically the courtroom it’s that the case begins the minute you
walk into that courtroom he may say to be what just the bailiff a
court reporter the judge jury and even in their at does it matter because the minute
people start performing the many people start forming
impressions at you in their head say it is just the bailout the court reporter they see you walk in you look like a
clown versus someone who looks really sharp was use the latter you really sharp get things together
your you’re creating a very strong impression their head the minute they see that those ’em the
pressures being formed by these adjectives they begin assigning to you
to think I’ll discard probably knows his stuff is for
copies walking in you tolls non-durables are in place but I’m thinking that but subconsciously
they are so now the judge in a jury comes in and you already have two people who are
non-verbal expressing that you got your stuff together that the respect you whenever you talk
to looking right at you and that rubs off on other people maybe
not hugely but enough for them to begin pouring their impression based on what they see other people
doing in your presence so don’t think that the first time you
open your mouth or or address the jury is the first time a
que start no no no is the first time did anyone in the
courtroom sees you so be sure you’re on your game the
minute you walk in because that impression is beginning to be created by people there and it’s
gonna rub off on other people courtroom obviously in a minute the jury comes in
is the military really starts to snowball because
they’re seeing your nonverbal mercy you communicator see everything and there immediately for me your
precious love you yup what you begin speaking sure you have
sixty percent of what they big you figured out and it’s going to be
very hard to shake dat once you begin speaking is much more
easy to confirm the confirmation bias there goes okay sky walked in you look like a clown he was
joking around and now he’s speaking intelligently but
maybe I don’t know maybe he just got this this is the front you put on how
trustworthy guy as opposed to you before you start
speaking sharpy’s focus use carpet his totality was strong now we start
speaking any sounds intelligible and he says well but make sexy look that
way algis reaffirms that so be sure that
your where the committee when release eyes on you especially the jury your be judged that case is already
starting to be fought now another chip if you’re ever
corrected by the judge you want to never never
never never give up any indication emotion never sat never mad never angry never combative
always it different as it didn’t happen is it you expected back to be what the judge
said because anytime there’s any confrontation
between you and the judge it shows low status and that’s gonna
hurt you in a triangle that’s where the components that we want you always to have in the courtroom and the
jury’s perspective is high status beary importantly that whole I want you to take with the
jury is 10 empathy I want them to feel like
you’re a good friend of theirs that’s trying to help them make a good
decision because the minute we step into that
courtroom the buyer seller dynamic is in place unfortunately as attorneys we’re the
seller and the buyer therefore they’re gonna filter
everything we say tour a lens I love he want something for me is trying to
persuade me he’s trying to trick me he’s not on my team we want to crush all
that so we want to show signs of honest empathy to get them thinking both consciously
and subconsciously all this guy just trying to help me make a good decision he’s on my team he’s a friend of mine
Knoll combativeness much trustworthiness much likability so how do we do that almost that’s gonna
be done through non verbals so when you speak and it’s very hard to
explain and but the in nonverbal you’re gonna
use for soft friendly body language to rally eye contact much like you would if you were talking
to your mom is on the jury and your best interests for her to make
a great decision speech were way on an example language that you
could use to kinda arm give an example a bit on how do you
want to use is you know I I know this is gonna be
tough to watch but you really need to watch it okay your friend you’re helping in your
warning them it’s going to be tough you’re kinda I know I know but you’re
trying to help you need to take him there so you want to be very friendly likable unapproachable and when
you’re attorney you’re not actually coming in
not as likable and not as trustworthy because the buyer
cylinder namic it tells us not trustworthy his day want something from
us that we don’t necessarily want from them
a hand if we find out we don’t want from them then it’s gonna be completely bad that’s
not the case you wanna come across as someone days only looking into hope I a passionate about his thats only looking to help to make their
own right decision if you go into the courtroom
for 40-plus years you’ve probably figured a lot of these things out establishment your own best practices
but if you happen to know if you’re looking to still improve I would suggest you implement somebody’s
what it’s going to do is gonna greatly shorten the learning
curve because instead of blind trial in a row by you just spending time in the
courtroom in seeing different reactions you’re gonna put these best practices in
a place and CD immediate pas reaction to completely wipe out the curve and be
working from a top I would suggest you take a look at some
my other videos because commonalities between charisma influence persuasion social dynamics or universal whether you be the street at
the grocery store on a date or in a courtroom sous la commonalities that I was just
you look for and also when someone’s considering coming to you
and you consider taking someone’s case a lot of these mannerisms
trustworthiness likability high-status intelligence are actually
use that they want to see before they even decide if you’re going to take their case don’t
be one of those attorneys scraping to get by for four years be a guy that can charge we watch whose
book is all assert have some impact in the courtroom

  1. It’s honestly really simple. Just look like you are good and you know what you are doing and voila. Lawyer.

  2. Hey, I am participating in a mock trial soon, and I would like your assistance. I am on the defendants side. What should I do? (This is my first time.)

  3. How can one "man" testfiy to what another "Man" knows, isn't that "hearsay"!!!, Peace and Love, ISLAM!!!

  4. Only works with the archaic jury system. When it's simply yourself, your opponent, witnesses, and the judge, you will get absolutely fucked up by the little guy who you brushed off like dust a few minutes before.

  5. Here's some advice for you bud, from a real lawyer – if you're going to start your video off with a statement predicated on incongruent reasoning, then the rest of the content falls flat on its arse.

  6. 1) as a lawyer, YOU are part of the process that chooses the jury. They've seen you for a while. 2) The impression starts as soon as you walk into the courthouse. You never know who's in the elevator with you. 3) Most cases either settle before trial, or get tried in front of a judge, 4) on the buyer-seller dynamic, a key for the "seller" is to communicate "I understand your best interests, and I am here to serve you." 5) another key to surviving as a lawyer is knowing what clients and cases to NOT take

  7. I have immensely enjoyed your presentation, and your PASSION. These are elements that are universal, as mentioned by you. If I’m tracking, the TLH triangle is critical and must remain authentic if the Jurors are going to β€œbuy” what you say. Semper Fi

  8. Were you born under the star sign Gemini? Your mouth piece is amazing and sexy as hell <3 Do you offer speaking in tongues as a service during the intake process? JKjk… or am I? No but on a serious note, thank you 100 times. These guidelines while allow my case to prosper… I am 100% confident. Anymore videos….? …possibly lounging about at home =D jkjk…

  9. "In your opinion, did your passenger know…" = OBJECTION SPECULATION. Hey, teach me how to be a doctor for your next video.

  10. my dad had dementia, we went to landlord and explained that this man who was post stroke could not live live alone and was unsafe in home due to dementia. the landlord went to my dad and told my dad that his kids were conspiring against him.. lies.. he wanted to keep a tenant and did not care about the dementia and unsafe condition dad was in. dad was post strok an could fall on top of it all ,, we told landlord this. my brother who is power of attrroney went in moved dad. The landlord tried to stop dad from moving over stepping boundaries by returning after being informed to dad apartment and telling dad things that were lies. dad had dementia.. we told him about dad condition even though we felt bad we were trying to protect him…. my brother wired dads house with camers and audio and we have the landlord on tap telling lies… low down bastered

  11. too much bravado makes ppl desensitized and tuned out to you. it happened during the video when you were talking (i started to tune out). However, these are really good tips.

  12. hello Mt Matirx, hahahah

    The timing if me finding this video is awesome. A fellow beat my dog with a huge stick, 6' by 1/12" thick and i came to his defence, sayimng to the guy that he deserves to be hit with a stick and then cursing at him very loudly he laughed and smiled when he was on his property as i walked along the beach and he said "what are you going to do" I told him to come down to the beach and i'd show him. For that i was arrested for uttering threats. i cannot afford a lawyer right now as all my savingwe were stolen by an investment fraudster so i am going to represent myself.

    Last week i presented myself to have my bail conditions removed and the prosecutor was trying to fight me on it and the judge gave her shit saying that i was right there in front of them and not looking like I was trying to flea. i WON.

    Now its off to tria, Mid Jan 2019,l and i am going to call some witnesses and learn how to cross examine. This video really helped me. I am outgoing already and dress super well and articulate and confident so i am going to write down an entire script for the trial date and try to keep to it. i realize that things may be allowed like questions and maybe not but the parto that you explained to move on straight away without showing any emotion if its not the answer i am looking for, is priceless. That alone will be a huge factor in me defending myself, two shoes to fill that day defendant and lawyer.

    Thank you very much for this it will certainly help me.

    Canada EH!

  13. Some don't like this I see but let's be honest you can have the best evidence in the world but if you don't present it well, it's all for not and opposing counsel will take advantage of it.

  14. Ever since I saw the documentary "Divorce Corp" I will say I was confident 🀝 I won my case representing myself and I am now studying to become a paralegal πŸ€—

  15. it's sooo dramatic i can't help comparing American court proceedings to bad soap operas. What's scary is the "dumbed-down" American public has hard time differentiating what's reasonable & real.

  16. You can't be socially invincible if you can't even be socially tolerable on Youtube. OP is a fucking idiot.

  17. I watched this twice, so now I'm firing my public pretender and will be commanding the court in my own defense.

  18. The jury will have the lawyers figured out at jury selection. Surely by the time the attorneys voir dire the various jurors, the jurors will get a glimpse at who is the most cagey.

  19. Justice history web mobiles zukkerberg quips missing history deleted or missing my idea work q984 to1986 1989 last mobile phone converse gesick n Darwin historical dialogue in st 17 postulates via by telephone ears digital switch after being Muslim gulf ops war eat ect bad press ignores history told to correct intellects an eat I trillions pounds no wonder back to futures not gonna sink in Justice to pirates not fo common man officials know press media UK ignore us has media tried but I gave u means tools to see talk connect with lost loved ones while police social media well I'm Don't Wana say more what can u do dear reader bye Waqas aka roger

  20. Howdy, Barron, Yet another great video I'll be sharing on fb and with my besties! Do you mind a common tip? "Tell 'em what you told 'em at the end of each short video. For example, this begins with a short mnemonic theme: TLH or Trustworthy, Likable and High-status. Instead of us having to rewind to remember it, it helps if you reprise it at the endβ€”I'm old so I'll tend to forget it the most. Otherwise, fantastic, and thanks again πŸ™πŸ» – Bob

  21. I learned law when the USA fabricated false charges, took my evidence and was tied or I had a close case with fake DA and cangooroo trial . My public defender hid my messages and made me lose. The judges are Freemasons , you get no fair trial unless you have a freemason lawyer that's friend with judge. I got deported to Mexico on threats allegations but my messages proved contrary. USA law is dictatorial rascist.

  22. Not interested. I just want to know the Legislation so that it will be useful to exercise our rights. Anyhow, the knowlege alone is not enough, you still need the title.

  23. I'm sorry but you're insane. You have hallmarks of narcissism. It's not buyer/seller, it's facts and law. "through nonverbals"? -you're a child.

  24. 11 minutes to be a lawyer? I more or less agree. This is a profession that can be learning in a one-year associates degree if not 3 months. Look up the rules, create and argument around the rules = now you are a lawyer. Professions that are way harder than being a lawyer; plumber, auto mechanic, electrician…

  25. Not in my case, I flatly stated to the Judge that SHE was responsible for my protracted homelessness because SHE knows it already. There was a moment of guilt on her face. God will see this case through.

  26. Need legal leads but think all internet marketers are full of …it? You are right! https://lp.thescalesystem.com/scalefreereport

  27. It is very important to not come off as acting – it felt like he was acting.
    Also, confidence and ego are sometimes hard to differentiate; the benefits of truly understand ego and how to avoid its traps is invaluable.

    Confidence is certainty – ego is everything else.

  28. You need to have the knowledge to win in court above all else. Take this course, its practically fail proof! It got a FEDERAL court case DISMISSED for me! This is amazing stuff guys! http://bit.ly/2zTJU4i

  29. This video was helpful and I can infer how this could be useful in real life, but I'm not a lawyer. This video was designed for lawyers and so the title shouldn't be about speaking like a lawyer but speaking as a lawyer

  30. You MISSED a key point to remind your viewers; to remind them that, "though this [isn't actually] surprising to you — ACT surprised, remember, this is a stage."

  31. I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am Lawyer I am a Lawyer I am Lawyer I am a Lawyer

  32. I don't wanna speak like a lawyer. I want a lawyer to be my voice and guidance. I'm being led on a long fucking journey to nowhere. You people see the same comments for 5 years but yet do nothing about it except keep me stalled. If u wear a badge wear it with integrity. The right thing to do is help connect me with legal counsel.

  33. typical democrat bs work on feeling not logic/ the law… I'm not saying he doesn't have points they work i am saying leave the drama facts only..

  34. As someone who didn't study law and is merely browsing these videos I can tell you my first impressions of this man is not entirely trustworthy. He struggles to shake the salesman dynamic that he talks aboutβ€” then I look at the video description and there's a bunch of links for products. Was he trying to be the friend that's helping me make the right decision after all?

  35. Great advice! But I'm not sure if the English captions for this video is either done by real humans or an automated AI! Seriously, what is with the English caption in this video? Many of those words and sentences don't exactly match what you say, which is a big problem, so you might want to double check the captions before posting it.

  36. These are also the characteristics of effective teachers, business persons, professionals, parents – EXCEPT the good people try to be truth seekers/seeders rather than selfish manipulators.

  37. Hello. I Marilou. Can you help me on how to win this case.
    Here's the situation. I am the real victim here of cyberbullying..

    I have my cousin who betray me that make my heart broke. She is always talking about me, slandering behind my back through social media and i simply revenge them. I also post something about her secrets. And the story now has been reverse. She reverse everything about her to me. We get in a court last year nov. 2018 and i lose. But we have a promise to each other that we have to respect each other and if i fail her she is going to file me a case laybel/cyberbullying. But after we get out of justice court she still continuing posting about me. She keep on insulting me until now coz i lose. And i was so pissed off and i take a great revenge. Im at the point that i really want to mention her name but i cant. Would you help me or give some advice on how to work on it. Coz until now were both taking revenged ..
    Thank you.. Hope you noticed me..

  38. I recommend brazilian jiu jitsu for men. It is a commitment, but once you get to a certain level, I find no one can ever intimidate me physically, so I can be calm and confident.

  39. thank you, i’ve been studying really hard lately into law and i’ve got the opportunity to act as the prosecution lawyer in a mock trial, these tips will be utilised 100% when i go to the court.

  40. Good stuff, I noticed you implement the techniques in which you share. you are not coming across as overly confident but confident in yourself and the case in which you represent. Good stuff, I needed this information and will implement it. Thank you, Counsel.

  41. a logical and useful exposition — but do shave if you're going to do closeups on a video!

  42. I'm not a lawer but I went prose in a divorce case and after watching this I wish I could go through my hearing all over again. Also I use this advise just dealing with people in general.

    Thanks man!!

  43. You made good key points. However You contradicted Yourself their not thinking it but subconsciously they are. Good video though.

  44. The lawyers are so good at analyzing the case that I just said to myself "Screw these arrogant idiots who are looking for only check mate before anything. I will do it myself". That is way better than paying ridiculous amount to let someone take in charge and screw up because they don't care what you are going through. They want to keep their relationship with the judges and other lawyers so there will be no fierce battle. Another advantage for self claim is the courts must not keep the same standard like the lawyers.
    The negative is there will be a lot of monkey business and procedural abuses involve with the other party's lawyers. Stand your ground and tell the truth like it happened will make it simple.
    Get the message clear and talk to the jury like a child telling the adults like how he was treated or someone bullied you.

  45. Remember your attorneys goal is to get your ass closer to the chair by making your wallet thinner! πŸ™‚
