I talk a lot about the saboteur. You know, that collection of voices that you’ve carried with you since childhood that continually remind you when you screw up or are about to screw up. But I recently realized I haven’t yet talked about the antidote to the saboteur: your Inner Leader and Allies. Having access to these inner resources not only allow…
 
Over the past 4 months my mind has gone over and over the “What if” question “What if the cancer comes back?” “What if I don’t live to see my kid grow up?” What if…?” I bet you ask this question too. “What if the jury returns a defense verdict?” “What if I screw this up?” I tried shutting down the “what if” questions in my brain. It didn’t work. Th…
 
In this recent FB Live, Sari discusses how teaching during opening statement is very different than storytelling and how, if you don’t get the difference, you run the risk of confusing the jury. On Thursday 5/6/21 she discussed the difference between the two and helps you excel at both in your next trial.…
 
One of the questions I get most often is, “How do I transition?” There always comes that awkward moment in a presentation where you’re not sure how to start the next bit of content. In this podcast episode I share the one thing you’re doing too much of and two things that can help you transition like a pro. Give this episode a listen to transition …
 
What happens if you’re objected to? Or lose your train of thought? Or say something that turns the jury off? How do you recover? There’s a GREAT skill you can use to get the jury (and yourself) refocused. Give this podcast a listen to learn how you to “decontaminate” the space after something unexpected happens. -Sari…
 
On one hand, I kinda hate “positive” thinking. It just doesn’t feel authentic sometimes. On the other hand, I know that our thoughts create our results, so choosing our thoughts carefully really, really matters. But what happens when you choose to think positively and -don’t- get the result you want? Is it a cosmic fuck you from the universe? Give …
 
One of my client’s favorite things about my work is what I call the Trial Dialogue. What is the Trial Dialogue you ask? It’s sourcing your opening from jurors in voir dire. It’s genius if I may say so myself, and moves jurors from information to investment. Give this special FB LIVE podcast a listen to learn how the Trial Dialogue works and how to …
 
We’ve added a new coach to the SariDLM team: Coach Joonho Hong! In this podcast episode we learn a little bit about Joon, how he stalked Sari, and why he’s gone “all in” with SariDLM. We’ll also talk about something Joon is passionate about: creating habits that support him (and you!) as a trial lawyer. Give this podcast a listen to learn the three…
 
Trial law is a creative practice. And sometimes it’s difficult to feel creative. This is precisely why you must claim your identity as an artist and live into what it truly means to live a creative life. In this podcast episode I give you three ways to start treating yourself as an artist and taking your trial practice to the next level. -Sari…
 
Motive. A big deal in criminal cases. An even BIGGER deal in civil cases. Yeah, I KNOW that jurors aren’t required to find motive to vote your way, but that doesn’t mean they don’t want it. They do. Jurors find it hard to punish “mistakes” and “accidents.” So how can we solve this as plaintiff attorneys? Give this podcast episode a listen to find o…

That’s why I have three questions for you to ask yourself as you begin your journey into 2021. I guarantee you that you’ll feel more hopeful, more in control and have more clarity after going through these exe…
 
When it comes to changing something in your life, you often know what to do, but yet you still struggle to do it. It’s not lack of knowledge that’s the problem, or even lack of motivation. It’s something you probably didn’t even consider important, but it has EVERYTHING to do with your ability to change. Give this podcast a listen to find out what …
 
“What color suit should I wear for voir dire?” “Should I use a Zoom background during jury selection?” “Are there some nonverbal tricks I can use to persuade the jury to my point of view?” These questions not only miss the point, they miss the ONE big thing you’re getting wrong when it comes to persuasion. Give this episode a listen to learn more. …
 
When working on the story in the opening statement (or in closing) I tend to run into some problems with my clients. Storytelling can be difficult. That’s why I’ve come up with three fundamental truths you need to understand to get your story right. Give this podcast a listen to learn what they are and how to make your next story a winning one. -Sa…
 
In my opening template, I have an “educate the jury” section and a “defendant’s story” section. But in nearly every case, when a client shows up to perform their opening, I’m confused as to whether they are teaching or storytelling. This is a problem. Teaching and storytelling are two VERY different things and must be kept separate. Give this podca…
 
Why do we lose worthy cases? Why do we break our leg after we start an exercise program to get healthy? Why do spouses die, kids get cancer and every other horrible thing? Why why why? Instead of asking WHY, I invite you, in this podcast to ask an entirely different question. Give it a listen to find out how to move from seeing bad things as a cosm…
 
A little over a week ago, I hosted a webinar called, "Tackling Racism in the Legal Profession." Boy did that ever open a can of worms. If you didn't catch the webinar, you can watch a replay in the From Hostage to Hero FB group, or on our YouTube channel. I then invite you to listen to this podcast episode to dispel some myths you might believe abo…
 
Are you "stressed and busy?" Do you tell yourself you're not a good public speaker? Do you ever hear yourself saying things like, "This is too hard," or, "I'll never get this?" Yeah, stop that shit. How you talk about your experience shapes your experience. Give a listen to this podcast to learn more. (And to hear about that one time I attempted to…
 
Recently, my family moved out to the beach. It wasn't a long thought-out, carefully planned move. Nope. But it was an instinct move and we're pleased we did it. Life doesn't always allow you to plan everything to the tee, and it rarely goes the way you have it perfectly outlined in your head. Give a listen to this podcast to learn what you need to …
 
Two podcast episodes ago, I talked about how you need to stop trying to become someone else in court and instead just be yourself. But then someone asked, "But what if I'm not likeable?" Ah...likeability. The holy grail of "personality traits" for trial attorneys. It may not be as important as you think. Give a listen to this podcast to learn more.…
 
I recently received my first 2-star review. After months of 5-star reviews for my book, From Hostage to Hero, I was beginning to despair thinking NO one would tell me they didn't like it. And well, if EVERYONE liked the book, it wasn't a book worth writing. Think I'm nuts? The same thing applies to you. If you're not being criticized, you're doing …
