Whether in the fields of personal injury, employment law or business litigation, you must build a trial-oriented practice. Start with our free eBook, Simplifying Evidence: A Quick Guide for Civil Trial Lawyers.
Building a trial-oriented practice means developing a warrior spirit and a “barrister” skill set. A warrior spirit is grounded in a passion for clients and having the resilience to work through case problems because you care for them. A barrister skill set is the tool kit to achieve victory or its settlement equivalent by overcoming those problems.
At TrialFocus we believe there are three core competencies one must master before moving on to the finer art of case storytelling. One must master civil evidence law, the law of trial and litigation procedure and the law of litigation ethics.
Those who master evidence law are a breed apart from lawyers who file cases, conduct discovery and maybe even go to the doorstep of the courthouse but no further. The problem is…evidence law, at least as taught in law school, is hard. It is usually taught without reference to the logic of introducing evidence or making objections. It’s too disjointed and often too complicated: for instance, do you really understand how to apply the hearsay rule and its exceptions?
We’ve developed an admissibility logic that will help you deal with the vast majority of situations you’ll encounter at trial. Thinking about evidence from the perspective of this logic can help you plan how to present your case and to make appropriate objections to your opponent’s evidence.
The building blocks of our admissibility logic are an alliterative set of “P’s”.
Our FREE eBook Simplifying Evidence: A Quick Guide for Civil Trial Lawyers expands on these topics in greater detail.
