I am tremendously more confident in my expert work thanks to your input, books, seminars and materials. Retaining counsel often give compliments on my reports and discussions, and I tell them I learned it all at SEAK.
“My (3) SEAK reference books have been essentials for the expert witness work I have done.”
“Yours is the most expensive CME I have ever taken. It is also the best value.”
“Jim, I just finished trial testimony as an expert witness in Minneapolis. The attorneys and client were quite pleased and impressed and I realized how much of my performance today was guided and informed by the principles and ideals I was taught by SEAK. My forensics interest is growing (I may actually need to refuse some reviews soon due to overload) and I believe that you and your colleagues (but especially you) had a big part in that growth – both in my training as well as that of my wife Jill who acts as my assistant.”
I was in a trial the other day and an attorney asked, “Ms. [Smith], do you wish you had more time to work on Mr. XXs Life Care Plan?” I smiled and thought of you because you gave this example in one of your programs. I sat back and said – “Sure, I always like to spend more time with my patients and their families”…no follow up questions. Thanks for the guidance.
“I attended your recent advanced training in Florida. I testified yesterday in court, the first such testimony since the training. It was a huge success as I felt for the first time, completely comfortable with my opinion, my report and my testimony. I have been doing expert witness work for quite some time, but have only started testifying more in recent years. I have observed others, completed various trainings and as you know there is a steep learning curve in this area, so have learned from every experience—good and especially, bad. Your class though was the “tipping point” in terms of me finally understanding and being able to implement testifying skills, starting with a completely reasoned opinion and ending with educating the court, remaining calm and speaking clearly and directly. I especially learned from watching all the witnesses get grilled at your training—seeing what experts look like when they can’t give a straight answer or are defensive really was instructive and eye opening. There were many take aways from the class but I especially liked Jim’s quote from The Art of War—he who is strong everywhere, is strong nowhere. I was able to give where I needed to and stand firm, where I wouldn’t. The other side should send their expert to your training…”
“I look forward to seeing you at your fall meeting. Thank you once more.”
“I have attended two SEAK conferences in the past year. Since I attended my first SEAK conference, my forensic expert witness business has tripled because of what I learned. I find the SEAK conference(s) to be my best source information and the most important conference that I attend to actually help me improve my product and be able to promote my business.”
I very much enjoyed the training and I am seriously considering attending another SEAK conference soon. It was exactly what I was hoping for in a conference and I am pleased at how much information I walked away with.
“I hate to tell you this but I have had several calls after the directory issued. I guess your methods work. You are the only company that has provided any contacts as a result of a program like yours.”
