Las Vegas Trial Lawyer
As new a trial lawyer you can rehearse, you can do mock trials, you can do focus groups all you like, but until you’re in front of a live jury with a real client where the stakes are real, there is no replacement for the trial and error of being a trial lawyer and actually doing it.
That’s the art of trial advocacy. And that’s where my 25 years and more than 100 jury trials come into play. I’ve seen things dozens, if not hundreds of times that most lawyers haven’t. I know what the potential pitfalls are of trials. In particular, nowadays, expert witnesses drive trials in virtually every type of civil case. These individuals are being paid tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars in cases they’re serving as professional expert witnesses. Unless you have had the experience of cross-examining a smart, difficult expert witness who can inflict real harm on your case, you should not be taking a case to trial. You need to have the experience of someone who is very seasoned as a trial lawyer who has not only seen it all before but has a vast array of experience in dealing with expert witnesses of all types so you can better understand what plays well and what presents well to a jury.
The art of cross-examination of expert witnesses is something that can only be accomplished through seasoned experience as a trial lawyer. My team and I have a unique understanding of what works in front of juries and what doesn’t work. We’ve polled thousands of jurors following trials to find out exactly what they liked, what they saw, and what they would like to see us improve upon. Unless you have had the full opportunity to speak to jurors who have actually served as a juror in a case after weeks of trial testimony and making a decision based upon all the evidence they heard, you don’t have the full story and you certainly don’t have the feedback you need to evolve your level of trial experience. While focus groups are important and play a very important role, presenting your case in front of a jury, making real opening statements and finding your preferred presentation method is the only true way to become a great trial lawyer.
These days, most lawyers go to trial maybe 5 or 10 times in their career while I personally go somewhere between 5 to 10 times every year. It is that level of experience that enables me and my law firm to ask for millions or even tens of millions of dollars. We have the experience, knowledge base, and tools to persuade juries and judges to find in our client’s favor.
