049 – The Art of a Trial



Witnesses are against you, the judge won’t admit your evidence – so how does a lawyer win what seems to be an impossible trial?

Steve, Jeff and Jared worked on a felony trial together and give you a blow-by-blow inside look at what actually went down. If you are a lawyer – you should listen to this. If you might need to hire a lawyer to defend you in court – you should definitely listen to this.

The guys talk focus groups, investigators, how to prepare, the importance of understanding people and reading the room, voir dire, mishaps with courthouse alarms, the pressure cooker of the courtroom, lawyer egos – and how to check them at the door.

047 – Scooters + OSU Football = Tailgating Squared



Thinking about taking one of the new Lime or Bird scooters for a spin and want to know which is better? We tested both and give you a head-to-head comparison.

This weekend is a 3-day weekend, the start of OSU football – normally we are talking about red cups and tailgating – but now that these new scooters are now all over OSU’s campus and in the mix, we predict that this will create a “perfect storm” of increased mayhem.

Steve, Jeff and Jared talk reckless operation, bicycle law vs. scooter law, and good and bad scooter riders and why they remind us of the movie “Twister”.

Enjoy the holiday weekend and the start of football season! But if you end up needing help, call us:  614-224-6142

046 – Scooters of Prey: The Millennial Force



“Everybody run – it’s a flock of Birds!” And then someone throws a Lime in the mix and pandemonium breaks out!

Have you seen the scooters that are littering the city lately? Or perhaps you’ve witnessed – or been part of – one of the hair-raising stunts and near-collisions (and collisions)? The Bird and Lime scooters are sharing the roadways and sidewalks now in Columbus and many other cities – and throughout OSU’s campus. What are the legal and safety ramifications that surround this newer, Uber-ized, mostly unregulated mode of transportation?

Steve, Jeff and Jared cover everything from reckless operation, liability and what the problem is with trying to use a scooter to avoid a DUI – to DBDs (designated Bird drivers), bunny hopping, Bird-pooling, Bird-Littering –  just who are these battery-charging elves?! – and Bird vs. Lime: when in doubt, joust!

(Spoiler alert: there will be a show-and-tell in part 2, so stay tuned!)
