The Most Important Juror: A Counterintuitive Approach to Telling the Winning Story in the Courtroom
11/14/2019 - 11/15/2019
In this two-day seminar, you will be introduced to fundamental story telling approaches and trial strategies that helped secure a $90 million dollar verdict win in the recent Blake v. Werner Trucking case, a case turned down by other trial lawyers and deemed “unwinnable” by many.
An attorney’s ability to successfully communicate, connect and persuade is crucial to success both inside and outside the courtroom. Regardless of whether you are speaking to your clients, your trial team, in settlement conferences, in every type of negotiation and especially in court it is High Stakes Communication. Your ability to effectively and powerfully communicate your message comes down to arming the most important juror… and that’s you.
Eric Penn, an experienced litigator and Jesse Wilson, a Juilliard trained communications specialist and jury trial consultant, developed this program by merging their skill perspectives from both the stage and the courtroom.
Bringing together the best of both worlds from a trial lawyer’s and jury trial consultant’s perspective, you will see how the true power of the winning story is an inside job, and so is winning communication.
Eric and Jesse, together with some of the nations’ top trial lawyers, will examine the skills necessary to craft opening and closing narratives that engage judge and jury and deliver the kind of emotional impact that influences significant jury verdicts and awards. Providing the emotional connection, and skills, to communicate the “heart of the story,” this program will awaken you to your true communication potential.
Take a "deep dive" with leading trial lawyers and theater and communication specialists, into effectively and powerfully communicating your message in...and out of the courtroom. Location: The Sheraton Gunter Hotel, 205 East Houston Street, San Antonio, TX 78205
