Praise for Advanced Case Framing:
“This book is not just a sequel to Mark’s innovative and brilliant first book, Case Framing. It’s a lot more than that. Mark takes his Case Framing concept to a whole new level of persuasion with careful explanations and copious examples, including a case study of what has to be one of the most difficult personal injury trials ever won by anyone, anywhere.”
--Patrick Malone, author of The Fearless Cross-Examiner and coauthor of Rules of the Road™
“Advanced Case Framing is the culmination of a lifetime of brilliant work in the courtroom by master trial lawyer, Mark Mandell. He has honed the art of the trial and provided a wonderful guide to be used over and over by lawyers at every stage of the case. Trial lawyers will be well-served to adapt anew Mark’s Case Framing principles provided in this book as they approach every case.”
--Judith A. Livingston, member of the Inner Circle of Advocates and Fellow of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers
“Mark Mandell has once again written a trial lawyers manual for winning cases. His clear and understandable strategies with examples make the book particularly useful. It is a manual on how to correctly present a case with an emphasis on framing. Every trial lawyer should study this book.”
--Paul Luvera, member emeritus of the Inner Circle of Advocates and listed in Best Lawyers in America
