Nuts & Bolts of Personal Injury Trial Preparation in New York

1h 15m

Created on February 25, 2018



Preparation is the key to success for any trial. While the judge, jury, your adversary and your client get to see you in action during the trial, it is the time spent before the trial, developing your theory, dissecting the evidence, preparing your witnesses and shaping your opening and closing statements that will determine your success.

Trial preparation begins from the day the case is retained. Honing in early on the theory of your case will enable you to move the case efficiently through the discovery process, depositions and motion practice. If the building blocks of your case are properly placed, the actual trial preparation comes naturally.

This program, presented by Jeffrey M. Kimmel, one of New York's leading civil trial attorneys, will explore and highlight the core aspects of trial preparation. While styles and approaches to trial work depend on individual personalities and strengths, preparation is universally necessary to success.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Develop and articulate the theory of your case as early as possible
  2. Consider trial preparation throughout each phase of the case
  3. Grasp and understand how each phase of the case should be directed toward trial preparation
  4. Prepare evidence, witnesses, and clients for the trial experience
