"As a past attendee of AAJ’s microexpressions or nonverbal communication seminars, I use this training daily whether I’m taking depositions with experts or witnesses, communicating with and reading a jury, or assessing a potential client. If you cannot attend, consider sending an associate or another lawyer from your firm. This one-of-a-kind program simply cannot be missed."
—Julie Braman Kane, Coral Gables, FL, 19 years in practice

 "When I first saw this program advertised, I expected the esoteric, but it was just the opposite. It gave me a skill to better identify people's emotions by looking in their windows of expressions and body signs. The central concept of microexpressions and body cues will change the way I communicate and watch communicators forever."
—Gus Brown, Bel Air, MD, 37 years in practice
