“Snazzing Up” Clients and Witnesses Won’t Fool Jurors, says Turley

Legal news commentator Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University who represents high-profile clients in civil liberties and other cases, shared insights on trying high-profile cases during a Nov. 21 webinar exclusively for ABA members.

On the topic of coaching clients and witnesses, Turley said, “(It’s) not how to snazz them up, how to make them slick, but to make sure they’re believable. “Jurors are very insightful. They know when folks are acting. They know when they’re insincere.”

“I’d rather have a clumsy client than one who seems artificial,”  noted Turley.
