Renowned trial lawyer and best-selling author Roger Dodd recently made an appearance at the Tulsa family law firm of Fry & Elder, and others took notice.
Tulsa World and Tulsa Business & Legal News reporter Ralph Schaefer was on hand to observe a portion of the two-day seminar focused on cross-examination techniques and then interview Dodd, and his partner Patricia Kuendig of Dodd & Kuendig Law Offices in Park City, Utah.

Schaefer’s most recent article delivers a behind-the-scenes look at how much detail, instruction and education go into Dodd’s seminars, which are limited to just six per year (eight attorneys per seminar). Dodd was quoted in the article as saying: “The single goal is to help as many clients as possible. The best way to do that is train trial lawyers to help their clients. If these lawyers represent 100 clients a year for eight years, then I have indirectly helped them assist 800 people.”
That Dodd selected the recently opened Robert G Fry Jr. Center for Trial Studies to host one of his six national seminars is significant. Dodd is one of just a very few lawyers who has been recognized in multiple states – Florida and Georgia – by Super Lawyers®. He also has achieved a certain celebrity status in the legal world, appearing numerous times on such networks as CourtTV, TruTV, CNN, ABC, CBS, and cable TV. Dodd co-authored a book with Larry Pozner titled The Masters of Cross-Examination, which was a best-seller and is known throughout the legal industry as “the bible of cross.” His practice focuses on personal injury and criminal law.
Fry & Elder trial lawyers M. Shane Henry, T. Luke Barteaux and Aaron D. Bundy attended the seminar. All three said the seminar was an intense educational experience that provided numerous takeaways, which they can apply in trial.
Henry, Barteaux and Bundy are each rising stars in the legal community. All three have been selected as Super Lawyers® Rising Stars™ and are a big reason why the Tulsa family law firm has made the U.S. News & World Report’s exclusive list of Best Law Firms for 2014-2016.
