What judges want : a former judge's guide to success in court

by James Stanton. American Lawyer Media. 2nd edition. 2016.
183 pages.

As stated in the foreword by former Texas Supreme Court Justice Scott Brister, trial practice has changed greatly in the past 20 years with judges, rather than juries increasingly making both substantive and procedural decisions. The author of this title, a former Texas district judge, draws from his personal experience as both a lawyer and a judge to help other attorneys understand what judges want. The book is divided into two parts. The first discusses strategy and how one should “think, write, and argue.” The second looks at specific trial tactics and offers advice for both the movant and the respondent.
