    I met Mr. Green while in law school, and he mentored me in trial advocacy throughout my first year on the National Trial Team. The lessons that I learned have been invaluable, as I continue to use them in practice today. Mr. Green is a highly intelligent and skilled advocate. Whether arguing in Court or negotiating at a mediation, Mr. Green has what it takes to secure the best result for his clients.
