WHAT OTHER PROFESSIONALS SAY ABOUT OUR PARTNERS:
About Camille M. Abate...
"Camille Abate is a genius in the courtroom. She combines an uncanny ability to connect with jurors of all identities with a razor-sharp intellect and knowledge of the law. Her ability to win 'unwinnable' cases is extraordinary. She is also a generous and effective teacher, with limitless patience and creative ideas. With her help, I learned to effectively review discovery, plan an investigation strategy, and develop a strong defense theory. Camille helped me develop tight, focused cross examinations, along with opening and closing arguments that directly incorporated and advanced our theory of the case. With her mentorship and guidance, I developed the confidence and skills I needed to develop my own success as a trial attorney. I highly recommend her trial skills training and trial support services."
-- Kathryn Miller, Esq., Clinical Teaching Fellow, Berkeley Law Death Penalty Clinic
"I recently had to manage a complex legal challenge, involving multiple law firms across three international jurisdictions. Managing this case was a matter of building a watertight legal argument by finding common ground across multiple countries’ legal precedent. My attorneys and I contacted Camille Abate to assist us in this incredibly difficult legal challenge, and her assistance completely altered the legal dynamic and resolved the difficulties that had been standing in the way of our ultimate success. Her work proved to be the deciding factor in winning our case. Camille Abate can achieve extraordinary results for both clients and lawyers because she can distill complex legal evidence into a convincing argument and can manage negotiations to get the best outcome. She also can express that argument especially clearly and convincingly. Her advocacy skills, not just in the courtroom but also over the phone and on paper, are superb. Most importantly, she is a driven, passionate advocate on behalf of her clients."

"Camille’s help was invaluable on a recent trial. Though I only retained her for a couple hours of voir dire strategizing on a difficult case, she provided much more than that. Her knowledge of trial practice is profound, as is her encouragement and support. She was with me every step of the way. My successful presentation was in large part due to her guidance (and willingness to take panicked phone calls!). I cannot recommend her highly enough."
-- Meredith Heller, Esq.
