Syllabus

  1. Selecting the right client
      • Is the potential client likeable? This is not really subjective.
      • Do not rush through initial consult; you may miss a critical part of the case.
      • Ask this key question to evaluate the case.
      • Set expectations as far as results and communication go.
      • Emphasize the importance of mitigation efforts.
  2. Preparing the case before filing
      • Talking to witnesses before filing/getting declaration.
      • Checking social media of opposing parties.
  3.  Litigation
      • Getting all relevant e-mails is critical. What e-mails are relevant?
      • Getting text messages can transform your case.
  4. Preparing Your Client for Deposition
      • Discuss common mistakes and give examples.
      • Show client samples of good and bad witness depositions.
  5.  Mediation
      • How to avoid wasting time on mediations that are bound to fail.
  6.  Trial
      • Critical jury selection tip.
      • Testimony: very similar to deposition.
      • Cross-examination – not like in movies.
      • Closing – relating your client’s story to the jury.
