You’ve organized the files, met every deadline, and now the big day is here: you are on your way to trial. You know your case file from every angle; and you’ve prepared the client, and your attorney, for the event. As a paralegal, you are the lifeline of the trial—and success depends on your support.

How did you get to this day? Developing the skills for successful, intuitive paralegaling can take years. It means knowing what questions to ask, what evidence gaps to look for, and what communication support feels like—both for your boss and their clients. Trials can be long, daunting, and stressful; having a plan and knowing your role can not only help win cases, but also improve morale and reduce the stress of your entire trial team.

Join Candess Zona-Mendola, author, speaker, and battle-tested trial paralegal, as she shares from her decades of experience in civil litigation. Learn what to expect, how to prepare, key strategies for success, and more.

Topics covered:

  • case management support
  • document control
  • setting up and managing your war room
  • anticipating and preparing for future needs
  • collaborating with your attorney
  • prepping the client


Paralegals play a vital role in the litigation trial process. Oftentimes that role will change and shift as the trial progresses, so you need to be on your toes and ready to jump into the action. No task is too small for a trial paralegal, and taking action when you are needed can help preserve your attorney's focus and energy on the most important thing: obtaining justice for the client.
