Trial Strategies

Natalia R. Angelini Litigation Tags: , 0 Comments

I attended a very helpful CLE yesterday on trial strategies.  While a large amount of material was covered addressing preparation for trial, I particularly identified with the following points made by various speakers about events during trial: 

  • Ensure the tone and style of your presentation suits the case;
  • A great advocate is a master story-teller – this doesn’t mean distorting the truth but drawing together a clear, coherent and complete picture that persuades the judge;
  • To tell a good story you need to know and keep in mind the theory of your case – this is adapting your story to the legal issues of the case; this appeals to the judge’s logic;
  • To tell a good story you need to know and keep in mind the theme of your case – appeal to shared values or common motivations; this appeals to the judge’s heart;
  • Consider not doing an agreed statement of fact in certain cases, in order to have persuasive human faces tell your story;
  • Examinations in chief are difficult – put your strongest witnesses up first and last;
  • Don’t get deflated by judge’s questions that appear to forecast a leaning against your case, the judge usually just needs more information;
  • Choose closing arguments made orally, this is more powerful than written submissions;
  • In closing argument highlight how the opposing counsel oversold their case in their opening statement;
  • In closing argument don’t oversell the evidence – cite it accurately and fairly; and
  • Be prepared to constantly re-evaluate your client’s case -don’t get discouraged by the unexpected, remember the big picture.

Have a great weekend!
