Courtroom Tricks of the Trade and Your Website Last week, an attorney client of ours was explaining to me how, often, even the most solid cases are won and lost on the details. (It’s one of the reasons why only the sharpest minds can practice law, people who get nuance and are sensitive to subtle shifts in perception.)

I found this rather interesting because, as a marketer, I’ve seen the same thing when it comes to converting website visitors into leads.
