Witness Preparation

The effectiveness of a key fact or expert witness' testimony during trial or arbitration is critical. The witness' demeanor and approach to answering questions are being closely scrutinized by the judge, jurors, or the arbitrators.

The mental attitude and effectiveness of the witness are the product of the witness' previous life experiences and specific attitudes about the case. Some of these experiences and attitudes may be helpful in your presentation of the witness. Others can be devastating. A witnessí acceptance of his or her role in the overall case presentation is important to achieving consistency and clarity in your efforts to make a successful presentation for your client.

The trial team can skillfully "wood shed" witnesses and help them prepare to testify about the details of the case. However, sometimes it is helpful to include additional assistance from experts who are trained in helping witnesses to deal effectively with the stresses of the courtroom environment.

Our witness school program is simply the best in the United States. Each of our training sessions are tailored to achieve a clear understanding of the mental processes of the witness, to teach him or her the psychology of the courtroom and how to respond effectively to the performance demands in the case, and to allow the witness an opportunity to role-play in a realistic setting. This setting might include the use of a mock jury to assist in evaluating and providing feedback to the witness, trial team and trial science team.

The most important goal of our training program is to help the fact or expert witness to tell the truth effectively and to help judges, jurors, or arbitrators to understand the case more clearly.
