Lessons learned from Abraham Lincoln’s career as a trial and appellate lawyer are as timeless as lessons learned from his political career. Lincoln historian and Dallas litigator Talmage Boston details how Honest Abe practiced law in ways that matched up with our Disciplinary Rules and Lawyers Creed long before we had such Rules or Creed. He will also detail the particulars of what made Lincoln such a compelling persuader to juries, judges, and the general public. Sponsored by the Trial Skills Section.
Talmage Boston’s practice involves all aspects of dispute resolution in commercial transactions. With more than 39 years of business litigation experience in Dallas, Talmage has tried jury cases and argued appeals all over Texas in both state and federal courts. Talmage is board certified (and has been recertified many times) in both Civil Trial Law and Civil Appellate Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
He’s had extensive first-chair jury trial experience in real estate, banking, energy, business fraud, construction, intellectual property, condemnation, consumer protection and contractual disputes.
He’s also been attorney of record in 27 published opinions, including arguments to Texas Supreme Court, most Texas courts of appeal, and the United States Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.
