“The reason I love the National Trial Lawyers is because I love the networking of like-minded people. The process and setup of NTL makes it so easy to connect and reach out to one another. One of the true benefits is sharing information on cases that help each other. I love the fact that NTL has an added business aspect to help lawyers who need a start with their practice in mass torts. It is an honor to be president of this group!”

“I thought the Trial Academy Bootcamp was excellent.  The speakers were phenomenal.  It wasn’t just like any old CLE – the speakers were engaging, the material was new, and it was great being able to put what we learned into practice during the breakout sessions.  I came into the weekend not knowing anyone and really felt welcomed into the group by the mentors.”
Colin Jones

“As long as people trust in the law, they will fight for the law. But that also means that we as attorneys must uphold our ends of that bargain. How do we do that? By trying cases, focusing on the jury process, joining amazing organizations like NTL and ultimately, making the practice of law about our clients.”
