Putting power back into the hands of the people
Gerry Spence was born and educated in the small towns of Wyoming where he has practiced law for almost fifty-five years. He has spent his lifetime representing and protecting victims of the legal system from what he calls The New Slave Master: big corporations and big government. He has tried and won many nationally known cases, including the Karen Silkwood case, the defense of Randy Weaver at Ruby Ridge, and the defense of Geoffrey Fieger. He has never lost a criminal case. He has not lost a civil case from 1969 to 2008.
Spence is the founder of the Trial Lawyers College which has established a revolutionary method of training lawyers for the people. He believes that what he has learned needs to be shared with those who will continue to strive for justice on behalf of the people.
Spence is the author of many books including the timeless classic and best seller, How to Argue and Win Every Time – a resource for the masses.
Spence is also a noted photographer and poet.
