Every caring lawyer involved in litigation has experienced the stress (trauma?) of wondering and worrying about witness testimony. Powerful Witness Preparation provides a modern prescription for persuasive verbal and non-verbal witness communications that will benefit every lawyer, regardless of experience (or inexperience).
Dan Small, a highly-respected and experienced litigator—and witness expert—walks you through the methods, procedure, and rules that will make your witness a powerful, compelling communicator.
Dan has worked in large and small firms, as general counsel of a healthcare management firm, and as a prosecutor for the US Justice Department. He is a respected author on witness preparation and wrote Preparing Witnesses: A Practical Guide for Lawyers and Their Clients (3rd Edition, American Bar Association). Dan represents witnesses, plaintiffs, and defendants in wide-ranging investigations and proceedings in civil and criminal litigation. His incredible breadth of experience is reflected in the bottom-line practical counsel he offers in this highly-acclaimed seminar.
Developing expertise, or even modest success, in witness preparation takes years, trials, and for most lawyers, many errors. At this seminar, you will rapidly increase your speed through the learning curve while minimizing the pain inherent in inadequate or improper witness preparation.
Invest one precious day to discover new tips, tactics, and techniques that will make you a more effective advocate. Period.
