When presenting a case to a jury there is nothing more important than effective witness preparation. Testifying in an arena that is dominated by attorneys and judges can be intimidating. The goal of the attorneys at Trial In Focus is to help your witnesses become more competent and confident by preparing them to testify.
Typically, witness preparation assistance can be accomplished in one 3-4 hour session. However, more or less time may be required depending on your individual circumstances. Witness preparation is most effective when completed in the week prior to testifying at trial or giving a deposition.
Witness Preparation Essentials:
- Work with the witness to develop talking points and key areas to focus on while testifying
Help the witness learn how to emphasize these strengths, while limiting focus on their weaknesses
Conduct mock cross examinations of a witness by an experienced Trial In Focus attorney
