This seminar will cover 25+ trial issues that keep you up in the middle of the night. Over two evenings, come hear seven Trial Attorneys, an Ethics Attorney and the Honorable Douglas E. McKeon discuss those items that trial attorneys face during a trial that require fast and strategic thinking.

Some of the key issues that will be discussed are:

•How to deal with a sleeping juror during trial
•When to introduce money amounts you are seeking
•Should you use a particular lead-off witness (i.e., expert, lay witness, damages witness, wife, husband, etc.)?
•How to deal with a difficult judge or one that appears to have taken sides
•Some of the most common problems with contingency fees:
o How to handle substitutions
o Fee divisions
o Lawyers’ liens, etc.

There will be a Q & A and a panel discussion to collectively discuss & share thoughts on how to effectively handle the most difficult problems.
