This course, presented by David Kwartler and Jason Manus, provides a “do’s” and “don’ts” conversation on how to most effectively present your personal injury case at the Pennsylvania Common Pleas Level.
The presenters have experience litigating hundreds of arbitrations, and sitting as arbitrators in Philadelphia. Two common mistakes they see are 1) lawyers who make arbitrations too complicated, or 2) lawyers who are unprepared to present their case in the best possible light. It is important for attorneys to prepare these cases as if they are going to trial so as to give the arbitrators all the information they need to find in their favor. This course teaches viewers best practices to prepare these cases
I. Learn to prepare your case as if you are going to trial
II. Know the rules of civil procedure and the applicable jurisdictional differences
III. Understand how to read the arbitration panel
IV. Prepare compelling openings and closings
