Dallas' Dick Sayles Mentors Attorneys at Statewide Conference
Dallas attorney Richard A. Sayles, founding shareholder of Sayles Werbner, P.C., recently shared his considerable legal skills and experience with attorneys from across the state as a faculty member for the prestigious Texas Trial Academy.
During the event held at the University of Texas School of Law in Austin on June 7-10, Mr. Sayles led a workshop on direct and cross examination of expert witnesses at trial. The four-day conference also included live demonstrations of courtroom trials to help attendees refine their own techniques and receive professional critiques.
The Texas Trial Academy is sponsored by the Texas Access to Justice Commission and the American College of Trial Lawyers. The academy’s purpose is to train legal aid attorneys in the vital skills necessary to provide quality civil legal services to poor Texans.
Membership in the American College of Trial Lawyers is extended by invitation only to experienced trial lawyers who have demonstrated exceptional advocacy skills and whose careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethics and professionalism.
“I was honored to serve with such a distinguished faculty with such a worthy purpose,” Mr. Sayles says. “These students, young licensed lawyers, are on the front lines in representing those less fortunate, giving them access to the civil justice system. I was pleased to play a role in that effort.”
Sayles Werbner has an international reputation as a “go to” trial law firm in multifaceted business litigation, intellectual property, patent litigation, life-altering personal injury cases, product safety lawsuits and other areas of the law.
