During his presentation, Gary discussed key points in delivering a winning closing argument, including the use of visual aids. The crowd was in awe as Gary read a brief passage of the actual closing argument he delivered in the Florida wrongful death smoking case – which rendered a $23.6 billion jury award. Mr. Gary also shared memories of his humble beginning in Martin County and stressed the importance of mutual respect for one another in honor of Black History Month.

TCJA president Chad Hastings, who began his legal career as a law clerk at the Gary, Williams, Parenti, Watson & Gary law firm commented, “Willie Gary inspired me to help people that are victims of negligence many years ago when I worked at his firm. As I complete my term as the first president of the TCJA, there is no better way to close than to see Mr. Gary inspiring our membership.”
