Lawyers are masterful storytellers. Some of the best-known books, movies and TV shows center around courtroom dramas—from Erin Brockovich to The Rainmaker to Law & Order. But, says Noah Webster of ACC Docket, “storytelling can be forgotten when writing pre-trial legal briefs, especially concerning routine issues.”

In this interview with ACC Docket, Esther and Noah discuss how lawyers can, and must, hook the judge’s attention in a legal brief— and can apply storytelling to all parts of the job.
