Winning the Case in Opening: How to Structure Every Opening

Opening statement is the most important phase of trial. It is not only where we first frame the story for the jury but where we can completely dismantle every potential defense before opposing counsel even opens his or her mouth. From employment cases to premises liability, this workshop we will help you put together an opening structure for your particular case that you can apply to 90% of your trials. Here are some concepts we will apply:

  • Creating a failsafe structure that can be used in a variety of cases
  • Story framing to get the jury on your side and angry at the defense
  • Use of video depositions and graphics
  • Dismantling defenses
  • Creating space and setting the scene
