2018 by the Numbers

Burger Law - 2018 by the Numbers

Its the end of the year, and time to reflect. Below I discuss interesting jury instruction issues in a medical malpractice case I tried a couple weeks ago , announce our scholarship winner for our Dangers of Social Media and Driving Scholarship and have yet another ladder video.

But first, the end of the year is a good time to assess. Here's a great quote by actor Douglas Fairbanks: "In taking stock of ourselves, we should not forget that fear plays a large part in the drama of failure. That is the first thing to be dropped."
