Lessons from One of America’s Greatest Trial Lawyers – Earl Rogers, by Paul Luvera, Plaintiff Trial Lawyer Tips Blog
Earl Rogers was a famous attorney who died in 1922. He defended 77 murder cases and lost only three. He was one of the greatest trial lawyers in American history. The long running TV series, Perry Mason, was based upon Earl Rogers life. His daughter Della Rogers St. John’s wrote a descriptive book of his trial skills in Final Verdict which is not only enjoyable reading, but educational as well.
