Take Back the Courtroom II - Rick Friedman on Handling Traumatic Brain Injury Cases

Back by popular demand!  Take Back the Courtroom II - Traumatic Brain Injury Litigation.

You asked for it and we delivered. Join Trial Guides for an exclusive 2-day live CLE on February 25-26, 2011 featuring trial superstar Rick Friedman. You know him from his best selling books Rules of the Road and Polarizing the Case. Rick has built his career by working his way up from a one person office in remote Alaska to obtaining significant jury verdicts for people in insurance bad faith, personal injury, traumatic brain injury, medical malpractice, product liability, and wrongful death cases.  This is not a seminar to be missed!

Rick’s love of trials, his affection and enthusiasm for trial law, and his desire to elevate the practice are real and infectious. You will leave this seminar with new knowledge, fresh inspiration, and an arsenal of proven approaches to re-tool your trial practice. After Rick’s unrivaled Take Back the Courtroom CLE in 2009, participants said:

"In the last 6 years, I have taken the time to attend 1 seminar in which I was not speaking. It was Rick Friedman for 2 whole days. I would do it again next month."
Roger Dodd, Author of Cross-Examination: Science and Techniques

"This was the best CLE I have ever attended. I have never seen a CLE speaker get a standing ovation before!"
— James Lloyd, Sand Springs, Oklahoma

"Very inspiring program!"
—Paul Kenney, Boston, Massachusetts

Also, special guest Don Bauermeister will give a presentation on how conservative jurors evaluate moral blameworthiness. As Rick notes, "Over the last ten years, no lawyer has taught me more about trying cases than Don Bauermeister."

This continuing legal education event focuses on handling traumatic brain injury cases.  A survey will be conducted prior to the seminar.  In addition to the agenda below, Rick will review the surveys to discuss topics the audience are most interested in. This is the preliminary agenda:
