That's what Fortune magazine called the first presentation I created with Mark Lanier, the top trial lawyer in the country.
I'm Cliff Atkinson, and I help trial lawyers persuade juries with creativity.
I'm an original thinker
As an Air Force Officer I learned about structure, as an MBA grad I learned about strategy, and as a journalist I learned about story.
I synthesize these 3 skills to bring high stakes legal cases to life.
