The Summit is a marvelous place to increase your skill set, learn more of the cutting-edge litigations, improve your office practice, and network with the country’s finest lawyers! By definition, summits are high points. Come elevate your practice at the Summit. Florida has springtime warmth, but the fellowship at the Summit is even warmer! And the learning chances are downright HOT! I can’t wait till next year!

From both an educational and networking perspective, there isn't a conference I recommend more than the Trial Lawyers Summit. Their ability to provide quality and quantity is quite remarkable. As a speaker at this event, I always know that my audience consists of the leaders in their respective fields. Similarly, the vendors that attend provide the type of services that allow law firms the ability to significantly enhance their businesses. Just an excellent conference.

We began the Trial Lawyers Summit at South Beach in January 2012 with the goal of combining highest quality CLE with the opportunity to network with great trial lawyers in a relaxing resort setting. Each year we have exceeded our expectations and 2018 will be no exception. Network with 900 –1,000 of your fellow trial lawyers at our Opening Super Bowl Party on Super Sunday, February 4, 2018 at Loews South Beach, followed by a great trial lawyers awards luncheon on Monday. Wrap it up with three days of CLE and swapping secrets in the Florida sun with successful litigators.

I had the pleasure of attending my first Trial Lawyers Summit in 2014, and I must say that it was, by far, the most worthwhile and beneficial legal conference that I've ever attended. Presentations by and networking with some of the best trial lawyers in the country; relevant and valuable conference subject areas - namely, trial and marketing skills; and satisfaction of all continuing legal education requirements for the year-- all in a beautiful, relaxing, luxurious setting. I look forward to attending, along with my law partners, on an annual basis for years to come!

The Trial Lawyers Summit is just what it promises: a gathering of the nation’s great trial attorneys, with in-depth presentations from the perspective of people who have actually been in the trenches. This is no academic conference featuring 'litigators' who have never tried a case to jury verdict, or who think arguing a summary judgment motion is the equivalent. These are the best of the best from the criminal defense and plaintiff’s bar.

Trial Lawyers Summit is a gathering of Eagles! We can’t beat mid-winter in Miami for brain storming what’s happening and what works on our big cases with the top trial lawyers in the country.

I don't need to encourage any of the attendees at the 2017 summit to show up in 2018, as it was such a great time, I know they will. For those who could not make it to the 2017 summit, or have not yet been to be one, I strongly encourage you to give the gift of this summit to yourself and to your practice. This is an extraordinary group of lawyers and the camaraderie between the civil bar and the criminal bar benefits both. Particularly for my friends in the criminal bar: this is a seminar you do not want to miss. Hopefully I'll see you in 2018.

The Trial Lawyers Summit is a genuine ‘get-ready-for-trial- event! This is America’s premier trial advocates seminar for learning about trial, readying for trial, and having personal & meaningful one on one discussions with some of the USA’s most experienced ‘verdict lawyers.’ The summit has proven to be a practice altering educational experience. It is a true must-not-miss!

Tom Girardi

Everyone in this fine organization belongs to many terrific groups of lawyers dedicated to the trial practice. I must honestly say, however, the best seminars I have ever attended are those of The National Trial Lawyers’ seminars. The topics are new and the advice is fresh. One of my partners said to me, 'I think it would be malpractice not to attend.'

Gloria Allred

The Trial Lawyers Summit in Miami is the ‘can’t miss’ event of the year for trial lawyers. You will be using the knowledge and relationships you gain from attending the TLS for the rest of your career. The topics discussed were not only informative but also extremely relevant to the ever-changing world of law and the speakers were the best of the best

I was absolutely amazed at the number of young trial lawyers that were attending the seminar. I noticed that what was different from this seminar and all others is that everyone seemed to be taking serious notes. Even the seminars that started very early; at 6:30 A.M.; were well attended. I would certainly recommend, especially to young lawyers, that they come to the Summit to learn from the masters.
