Take Back the Courtroom IV: Overcoming Challenges in Trial features an all-star group of lawyers sharing the stage: Rick Friedman, Roger Dodd, Randi McGinn, Nick Rowley, and Keith Mitnik—as well as communications consultant Sari de la Motte.

This presentation primarily deals with how to work with difficult judges, abusive opposing counsel, and challenging clients. Rick, Randi, and Roger discuss the types of judges that can be problematic to your case, how to work with them, and how to win despite the challenges these judges can create. They then exchange advice about how to deal with common challenges with opposing counsel and difficult clients.

In addition, the speakers cover a wide range of rarely discussed and important topics. Rick delivers his most personal speech to date on the ten greatest mistakes he has made in his career and how you can avoid them. Randi talks about gender dynamics in the courtroom and some of the benefits of being a female trial lawyer. Roger brings up ethical issues that arise in response to difficult judges and unethical tactics by opposing counsel. Nick and Keith separately develop competing ideas about voir dire: Nick’s method of building a group and keeping most jurors versus Keith’s more traditional method of juror deselection through cause and peremptory strikes. And Sari shows how improving your methods of communicating with jurors can help increase your case outcomes.

This video is filled with meaningful discussions between the speakers about important areas of practice, including how to talk about money with jurors, innovative methods for uncovering jury bias, the importance of trying cases to getting better settlement offers, and much more.

*Please note: This video set includes highlights from an exclusive $1,200 live event for lawyers. Certain exclusive content has not been included to preserve the value of attending the live event. Similarly, this set does not include the extensive written materials from the conference. Visit our Seminars & CLE page to find the next comprehensive Trial Guides seminar where you will learn even more.
