Why can it take so long to try a case and what would you do if you had to make your trial shorter? Join nationally recognized trial lawyer Joe Fried as he challenges the prevailing paradigm for lengthy civil jury trials. Joe has litigated cases in more than 35 states, and in the last 10 years his firm has obtained over 100 verdicts and settlements exceeding $1 million. His unique method of working up cases is trial tested and his results speak for themselves. 

This program will start by examining why it can take so long to try a case and then challenges listeners to imagine a new paradigm that allows trials to be significantly shorter and more focused. 

Listeners will learn how to:

  • Use intentionality to determine what a case needs to be about
  • Maintain juror focus on the important aspects of a case
  • Effectively edit case content and the number of witnesses you need for trial
  • Present witnesses and evidence quickly and efficiently

This program includes practical real-world examples and applications. Specific examples from actual trials will be utilized to explain concepts relating to content and story, jury selection, opening statement, both direct and cross-examination, and closing argument. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn how you can become a more effective advocate by presenting a more focused and shorter trial.
