All star faculty Pat Ardis, Jim Fitzgerald, Pete Kestner, Tom Metier, Emily Hawk Mills, Dan Munley, Eric Penn, Jesse Wilson and Andy Young share an indepth look at the strategies and techniques they’ve used to successfully litigate some of their toughest cases. 

Eric Penn gives a detailed analysis of the trial strategies and storytelling approaches that he used to secure an $89.6 million verdict in the recent Blake v. Werner Trucking case, a case deemed "unwinnable" by many. 

Jesse Wilson, a Juilliard trained communication and jury consultant, works with trial teams across the nation and teaches at the Trial Lawyers College.  Jesse delivers high impact presentations to rapidly transform your communication and collaboration skills.

These engaging and proven trial lawyers from across the country take a deep dive into the exploration of the skills and fundamentals that have proven invaluable in crafting opening and closing narratives that engage judge and jury and deliver the kind of emotional impact that influences significant jury verdict and awards.  

You'll find that these insights, techniques and approaches are not just advantageous in trial.  An attorney’s ability to successfully communicate, connect and persuade is crucial to success both inside and outside the courtroom. Regardless of whether you are speaking to your clients, your trial team, in settlement conferences, in every type of negotiation and especially in court it is High Stakes Communication. Your ability to effectively and powerfully communicate your message comes down to arming the most important jurorand that’s you.
