Join the Texas Board of Advocates for insight into how battle-tested military strategies can be applied to litigation.

Lt. Colonel Dreier has a military career spanning from operations Classic Resolve and Earnest Will during the Cold War (in which he served as an intelligence analyst), through the wars in Afghanistan (where he served as a strategic policy planner) and Iraq (working on reconstruction of judicial and executive functions in Wasit Province, Iraq). He additionally served with both the Marine Corps Embassy Security Group (Department of State), and the Marine Corps Special Operations Command before entering the Judge Advocate General’s (JAG) Corps of the U.S. Army at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. He has handled over three hundred cases and been sole or lead counsel in thirty-three contested trials, of which he has won thirty.

The presentation draws parallels between operational military planning and trial, and highlights how these planning techniques can form effective trial strategies. The presentation covers military science, psychology, and game theory.
