  • Word choice
  • Empower the jury
  • Define and identify potential bias

Cross-examination - Participants will learn how to master the use of:

  • The flip chart

  • Present tense
  • Eliminate tag lines: correct, true
  • Eliminate filler words: and, ok & ah
  • Creating space
  • Dodd’s Three Rules: leading questions only, one new fact per question & all facts lead to goal oriented fact
