Chuck is an instructor for the Trojan Horse Method, a group that teaches lawyers from all across the county how to develop the emotional core of their case so the jury can experience their clients’ stories. The method is specific, detailed, efficient, and challenges trial lawyers to push themselves to the limit by intense training that is critiqued and videotaped. Trojan Horse teaches trial presentation skills combined with theory that works.
