I’m just a plainspoken Colorado criminal defense lawyer, but the way I see it…
The American Bar Association is forever publishing books to help us lawyers do our jobs better.
Just out is one by self-described “world-wide celebrity” Ryan Danz. I’m sure I’m the only one in the world who never heard of him. The book’s title is as intriguing as his celebrity: “Jiu Jitsu Jurisprudence.”
Never one to be left behind by new theories of criminal defense, I went right out and bought it. At my very next trial, as the prosecutor approached the climax of his stem-winding final argument, I leapt to my feet as though to object, and instead took three long strides toward the man, executed a perfect osotogari, and flipped him into the jury box.
My client was thrilled.
