In the debut episode of Trying 2 Win, a podcast about real-life legal battles in and outside the courtroom, we introduce you to Sara Lincoln and Tricia Derr, founders of Lincoln Derr, a minority and women-owned law firm based in Charlotte, N.C. Over the course of their careers, both women have distinguished themselves as powerhouse litigators, with decades of experience fighting on behalf of their clients in court. In this episode, though, we go back in time to when they were both new lawyers trying their very first cases. It wasn’t always pretty, but the hits and misses of those early courtroom experiences taught them a lot about what it takes to win. Their advice for all the law students and young lawyers out there? “Get your rear end into the courtroom and do it soon because there’s no better way to learn than through experience.”
