How to argue and win every time : at home, at work, in court, everywhere, every day by Gerry Spence( Book )

46 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in 10 languages and held by 2,321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How to Argue and Win Every Time is a book that teaches you how to argue in everyday life - at home, in the bedroom, with the boss, with teachers, and with your kids. But it is also a book with sweeping implications for American society, for at its heart, it proposes a new philosophy - that winning is not what you think it is and that your enemy's loss may be your loss as well. Gerry Spence, the noted trial lawyer, says we were born to make the winning argument as we were born to walk. But argument is an art as well as a technique to be learned. The winning argument starts with a mindset, one that gives you permission to argue freely when argument has been the forbidden fruit of your childhood. Spence teaches you how to get beyond the fear and to use this fear as your ally. He shows you that when your argument emerges from your own authority, the argument will not only be the winning argument, it will be unique among all arguments

Trial by fire : the true story of a woman's ordeal at the hands of the law by Gerry Spence( Book )

4 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kim Pring of Cheyenne, a national baton-twirling champion, was a contestant in the 1979 Miss America pageant. Shortly thereafter, a story appeared in Penthouse magazine about a fictional baton-twirling Miss Wyoming who excelled at fellatio. Pring hired Spence, a well-known trial lawyer and author of Gunning for Justice, etc., to undertake a libel suit against the magazine. This book is the story of that trial and its subsequent appeals. Citing parallels throughout, going back to the 1487 Malleus Malificarum on the punishment of witches, Spence argues that women are still treated as sexually menacing repositories of evil and that society enjoys their victimization. Serious questions are raised by the Pring case, including what constitutes a public figure and whether fiction can be libelous
Win your case : how to present, persuade, prevail-- every place, every time by Gerry Spence( Book )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spence is known for his deep convictions and his powerful courtroom presentations when he argues on behalf of ordinary people. In this book, he shares a lifetime of experience teaching you how to win in any arena--the courtroom, the boardroom, the sales call, the salary review, the town council meeting. Relying on the successful courtroom methods he has developed over more than half a century, he shows how to win cases as he takes you step by step through the elements of a trial-- jury selection, the opening statement, the presentation of witnesses, their cross-examinations, and the closing argument. He teaches you how to prepare, then leads you through the methods he uses in discovering the story to form the evidence into a compelling narrative, discover the point of view of the decision maker, anticipate and answer the counterarguments, and finally conclude the case with a winning final argument.--From publisher description
Police state : how America's cops get away with murder by Gerry Spence( Book )

5 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We all want to feel safe. But safe from what, and from whom? In his 60-plus years as a trial lawyer, Gerry Spence has never represented a person accused of a crime in which the police hadn't themselves violated the law. Whether by covering up their own corrupt dealings, by the falsification or manufacture of evidence, or by the outright murder of innocent civilians, those individuals charged with upholding the law break it every day, in ways more scandalous than the courts have dared admit. The police and prosecutors won't charge or convict themselves, and so the crimes of the criminal justice system are swept under the rug. Nothing changes. Too many police officers are killers on the loose, and every uninformed American is a potential next victim. Police culture is mired in the dead weight of precedent and ruled by trigger-happy tyrants. Power will march our nation over the police state precipice unless We the People take action. The FBI's massacre of the Weaver family at Ruby Ridge; the killing of mortally-wounded Fouad Kaady by a group of police officers; the torture of teenaged Dennis Williams by cops seeking a murder confession-again and again, the question arises: When the very men and women we pay to protect us instead persecute us every day, how can we be safe? In Police State, Spence slaps a stinging indictment upon the American justice system and puts forth a plan to restore liberty and justice for all"--
