Preparing The Winning Case From Intake To Verdict

How to select the case, client intake and preparation to testify, developing a compelling liability story, discovering the emotionally moving damages story and winning at trial, from jury selection to closing.

Haytham will discuss and present effective methods that will be put into practice and capable of being carried back to the office.

1. Case selection and intake
2. Early discovery of the damages story
3. Using and leveraging discovery tools as a weapon to put the defense on the defensive
4. Applying warfighting strategies to undermine the defense center of gravity
5. Researching and selecting effective metaphors that resonate with the jury
6. Strategies to pick the right jury without losing your best jurors
8. Use of tools and techniques to ensure the jury only remembers one story, yours
9. Why civility matters and how it leads to building credibility with the judge and jury

Haytham will introduce methods and strategies to preparing and winning cases at trial learned from his 20 plus years as a Marine Corps infantry officer and 13 years of teaching the techniques developed by Gerry Spence at the Thunderhead Ranch in Wyoming.

Haytham is a senior faculty member and Board member of the Gerry Spence Method. The presentation will meld the unquestionable effectiveness of the methods developed by Gerry Spence from the Gerry Spence Method program at the Thunderhead Ranch with the big picture approach to winning trials that Haytham developed and applies from the classic work the Warfighting Manual.
