In The Domino Theory, each part of your case is a domino—one step in a cause-and-effect cascade. New Jersey Law Journal Hall of Fame Award winner Edward Capozzi shows you how to successfully demonstrate any case to a jury. He demonstrates, step-by-step, how to set up each element from discovery and settlement to opening statement and arguing damages in closing—when you knock down your dominos and demonstrate the inevitable logic of your case.
Capozzi presents a robust framework for practicing trial law, effectively humanizing and individualizing each case, and arguing engagingly to build credibility and keep the jury invested in your case. With discussions and examples covering soft-tissue injury, auto accident, medical malpractice, and premises liability cases, Capozzi provides a robust and detailed method for obtaining just settlements and winning verdicts for your clients. This text includes a thorough discussion of how to demonstrate proximate cause; prove permanence in soft-tissue injury cases; and present your case to the jury, the defense, and the court in a way that maximizes your ability to obtain justice for your clients.
