What Vin Scully Taught Me About Life (and Law)

Manatt Entertainment Partner Nathaniel Bach wrote a column for the Daily Journal about lessons he learned from Vin Scully’s storytelling that he brings into his career as a litigator. 

“I’ve thought often of the power in Scully’s silence – letting the game and the crowd reveal themselves in moments of both glory and despair,” Bach writes. “Strategic silence and phrasing can be equally effective (and devastating) in a good lawyer’s cross-examination or deposition, or to help take command of a courtroom. So can the well-placed quip that captures the moment and lightens the mood.”
