Join Attorney Joseph Vozza as he illuminates everything a litigator needs to know about the trial process. Mr. Vozza begins with "knowing your case" and how a successful trial is often the product of working with care from the case's inception.

If the case does indeed move forward, Mr. Vozza describes important processes such as pre-jury preparations, jury selection and pre-trial motions. Additionally, he discusses the techniques and strategies necessary to delivering and performing successful opening and closing statements, direct and cross examinations and any post-trial motions. Lastly, Mr. Vozza briefly discusses how to get a case ready for appeal.
