Welcome to On Trial, a podcast dedicated to the art of trial.  I’m your host, Christopher DeGennaro, a commercial litigation lawyer at Foley & Lardner in the firm’s New York office with a focus on trial practice.  I have been fascinated by trials since I was in grade school, when both my parents served as prosecutors in suburban Philadelphia.  On sick days from school, I went to work with my mother—often to court, where I sat in a back row and watched. Instantly, I was captivated by persuasive story-telling and trial advocacy.  And ever since, I’ve been on a path to developing my own trial skills, starting out as a NYC prosecutor, clerking in a federal trial court, and now representing clients in high-stakes, commercial cases in trial courts across the country.  This podcast explores all things related to the art of trial, including in particular, its artists—trial lawyers.  Throughout the series, we’ll talk to trial lawyers from different areas of practice, hearing their stories and exploring the most interesting and important elements of trying cases.
