“Are You Ready for Trial?”

Typically, trial lawyers know how to get their evidence admitted, but they simply don't know how to make their evidence memorable.  You want to learn how to make the jury pay attention to your evidence -- you want to bring your evidence to life in the courtroom. 

Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions?

bullet “Why aren't the jurors talking to me during jury selection?”
bullet “How can I grab the jury's attention during opening statement”
bullet “Why didn't the jurors recognize that major impeachment point I made during cross-examination?”
bullet “My direct examination is flat - can I breathe life into it and make it come alive?”
bullet “I had a 'smoking gun' document -- why did the jury ignore it?”
