The Psychology of Judgment:

Most lawyers are trained in a law school advocacy model that is geared for lawyers and not for jurors. For jurors, your facts are not enough. Your experts are not enough. Your witnesses are not enough. And the law is not enough. You need a story, a narrative, and the ability to communicate that story in a simple and effective way that gives it meaning and helps the jury know exactly what they need to do with your case. Because the difference between information and meaning is the difference between losing and winning.
