Robinson Offers Tips to Aspiring Product Liability Attorneys in Law360

Shook, Hardy & Bacon Orange County Managing Partner Doug Robinson shares advice for young product liability lawyers in a June 10 Law360 article, “5 Tips for Aspiring Product Liability Attorneys.”

Robinson suggests that young attorneys should recognize and value the expertise of their paralegals. He recalls, “I can still remember the paralegal in my first trial; I didn’t know what I was doing, but it wasn’t unusual for her to slide objections to me at trial.” Robinson adds, “She wasn’t trying to show me up, but she knew what she was doing.”

The article also includes input from other attorneys who shared tips for budding product liability attorneys, including staying on top of national trends and remembering that despite how science-heavy product liability cases can be, addressing the human side of the case is important to connect with jurors.
