Psychodrama Use With Barone Defense Firm Team

Question: How do you use psychodrama within your team at the Barone Defense Firm?

Answer: So let me explain to you, to answer that question, how a sociodrama might unfold. So we bring together a group—let's just say it's the law firm, the entire law firm—and we do a series of exercises to get the group warmed up to things that might be happening in the office that are causing problems. And we eventually decide as a group which of those problems to have a look at more closely. And it may be dealing with a difficult client or dealing with a difficult clerk at a court or whatever it might be that the group has warmed up to. And what will then happen is, we will not actually reenact a specific event, but more the stereotypic event where that would occur. And each of us would then play the part of the different participants in that fictitional scene. And that might mean that I would reverse roles with the receptionist who's actually taking that call or the secretary that's taking that call. And that gives me more insight into what it's like to be them. They might reverse roles with me and have to make the decision of what to do with that client, and that gives them more insight into what it's like to be me. And that type of role reversal, which is really the sine qua non of psychodrama, is what gives you much greater insight and therefore empathy for the other people that are both in your work environment as well as more broadly in your life.

Patrick Barone is the ONLY choice for DUI defense. He was realistic from the start and made it a point to look at my case before taking my money. As a business owner, when I think of attorneys, I think of the "shark infested waters. Patrick is a shark alright, but his prey is not the client; it's justice for his client. Ten stars Patrick!!

Attorney Patrick Barone was very helpful and helped me understand the charge and sentence absolutely clearly. He also guided me through step by step helping me form a statement. His instructions were clear and detailed. It was obvious he cared about me understanding every important detail within my case. I would absolutely recommend this defense firm to anyone in need.

The Barone Defense Firm is the firm I recommend. They are truly concerned about the person, not just the legal issue, but the person as well. They are the most knowledgeable defense firm that I am aware of, having actually written the book on DWI Defense. If you are faced with a DWI you will not find a more professional and skilled law firm. But, most importantly, they care about how the accused individual recovers his or her life when the case is complete. Very remarkable group of lawyers. William H.
