Witness Preparation for Trial

Win the War

Discovery is complete. Depositions are over. Settlement seems unlikely. The time has come to prepare for trial. Any witness can tell the truth, but only the best-prepared witnesses can do so effectively and persuasively.

TrialPrep helps ensure that your witness delivers a compelling courtroom performance. We provide insight on juror expectations and tips to build credibility, teaching an array of communication strategies to foster juror understanding and positive perceptions. The TrialPrep process is based on our rich expertise in jury decision-making, psychology and communications.

Our insight, combined with your proficiency in trial advocacy, covers all the bases.
