Criminal defense attorney uses EFT to help innocent client during cross-examination
"This stuff works in the oddest places." So says attorney Ted Robinson after using EFT effectively for his innocent client. Actually, there is hardly a human endeavor where EFT would not be useful and, hopefully, this case will help you develop other imaginative uses.
As you know, I've been a criminal defense attorney for more than three decades and started using EFT in my practice of law about 9 years ago. At first, it was difficult because it was too strange for many clients to accept, but I eventually became more at ease with using it in my practice and it came in quite handy a number of times.
One time I had a client who had actually taken the EFT basic training from me in order to start using it in his massage practice. However, shortly thereafter, he was arrested for sexually abusing a young woman while massaging her. At least, that was the allegation. It never sounded right to me. He maintained he was absolutely innocent so we went to trial.
As the trial progressed, I eventually put him on the witness stand to testify to his innocence and just as he finished, the judge broke for lunch. Now, as a defendant, that's about the worst thing that can happen because it gives the Assistant District Attorney an opportunity to prepare for cross-examination. Usually, they're not great at conducting cross-examinations because they don't get much experience, but with an entire lunch recess, I knew the ADA could do a lot of preparing and I was worried for my client.
My client and I went to lunch and after preparing him fully, I was very unsure of his ability to stay cool under fire. I began talking about EFT with his friend who was with us (at that time I was not willing to just wade in and offer to do EFT for witness preparation) and he asked if he could see a demonstration of it.
So, there was my opportunity. I took my client and demonstrated on him. By the time we went back to court, he was so relaxed he was almost asleep, but when the cross-examination started, he was cool and calm and went through it flawlessly. It didn't hurt that he was innocent, of course.
The jury came back in less than 20 minutes with an acquittal and we were both very happy. This stuff works in the oddest places.
With deep respect,
