Teaching & Training

Passon is a dynamic speaker and nationally published author who teaches lawyers, paralegals and investigators how to persuade with visual storytelling.
His presentations are regarded as some of the most informative
and entertaining in the legal community.

Live Presentations

Let's face it-- continuing legal education can be a drag. Passon has given over 70 live trainings to organizations across the country. His presentations uniformly garner rave reviews because he strives not just to inform, but also to entertain and inspire with high energy, dynamic visuals, story fundamentals (they never teach in law school) and outside-the-box-thinking.

In-House Training

Lawyers and legal professionals know they should be doing more to incorporate video into their everyday practice, they just don't know how. Passon will hand-craft an in-house training to meet the needs of any organization, from a government agency/public defender, to a large law firm. Among other topics, Passon will cover choosing the right equipment, using it well, interview techniques, lighting, video editing.

The Reviews are In!

Sooooo good. I would say this was probably THE best breakout session offered all week. Very VERY informative and helpful. I was COMPLETELY engaged.

I had heard about Passon's work for years. It was great to get the chance to see it for myself. Good combination of inspiration and nuts/bolts information!

Awesome presentation! Enjoyable and enlightening. Can't say enough about this presenter and the subject matter.

This presentation convinced me that I've been remiss in my sentencing presentations. Just told a client hat I need to get some photos and other documents for her upcoming sentencing!
