Testimonials

Mr. Read is very energetic and loved sharing his experiences.

Participant

I thoroughly enjoyed your excellent presentation and materials. I have always been a big fan of McElhaney and I always enjoy reading about and learning from masters of the art of advocacy. I have begun reading Turning Points at Trial and it’s in that mold. Very enjoyable. I have been trying cases for 40 years and have attended more CLE’s than I can count. I lecture frequently here in Minnesota . . . . You are a terrific teacher and I enjoyed (and learned from) your presentation.”
