I hope all is well. I wanted to let you know I was co-trial counsel in a trademark case. Somehow this particular case lent itself to the style of cross I’ve seen you use on YouTube in one of your mock criminal defense cases. I was channeling you all the way. All the way, it turns out, to a $8.6 million jury verdict.
I still look forward to meeting you in person one day. In the meantime, please keep putting those videos on YouTube!”
