How We Can Help
Cases are won and lost because of what occurs before trial.
We believe all boats rise with the tide. We want to share our successful litigation and trial strategies with other personal injury attorneys so that the injured members of our community receive the help they need to make up for the harms and losses they have experienced resulting from permanent injuries. We want to change the way the insurance industry treats plaintiffs’ attorneys and our injured clients.
Work with our team to identify and prepare lay witnesses for impactful testimony at trial, learn effective direct examination tactics for medical experts and cross examination of defense experts.
Learn to create meaningful mediation presentations, develop opening and closing statements that matter and learn to use technology and demonstrative evidence throughout your trial presentation
