You have helped me get my forensic practice off to a great start, have been a pleasure to deal with, and your guidance has helped me avoid several potentially major business mistakes as well as stay on task and in motion forward. Part consultant, part therapist, you’ve been there for me throughout, helping me think through several pivotal professional decisions.
“I was deposed in February by a very cranky defense attorney. He was not happy with what I had to say and kept insisting I was changing what I had said previously (it was part 2 of a depo). I did not back down and the RC told me I had held up quite well to the badgering. I was deposed last week by two more defense attorneys and one of them said something you taught at the conference, and I smirked when he was saying it. When I spoke to RC this morning he said he felt I did really well with their nit picking and did not concede my opinion. Thank you once again for the valuable, worth every penny service you provide, I truly appreciate all I learned from you.”
“I attended the SEAK Advanced Testifying Skills course in 2006. This was an extremely beneficial program. It provided clarity. Wording in my reports improved due to some suggestions made. Additionally, when I testify, at times a “light bulb” goes on in my head, alerting me to “go for it”–assert myself. For example, when I responded to a question–using wording I learned at the seminar–an opposing counsel actually looked startled, stepped back and eased up on cross-examining me. (He also asked for my business card following the trial.) Additionally, at your seminar, I met other experts who shared their experiences. This, also, was very rewarding. Thank you for offering such a worthwhile seminar. I am considering taking it again to further strengthen my knowledge and performance.”
I found this past weekend’s training to be extremely helpful. I had a deposition yesterday that was my best ever. I look forward to further training with SEAK.
Whenever I get a chance, I recommend SEAK and particularly recommend you and Mr. Mangraviti. In addition, you have really helped in the way you trained my office assistant at the assistants course in Chicago.
“You and your company should be commended on presenting an educational and enjoyable program. It was first rate in every respect and certainly of great use as I go forward.”
Thanks for putting on an impactful seminar. I learned a lot in many areas that I hope to apply in this field. I signed up for the directory as well and look forward to getting started and becoming a “go-to” expert. I was retained as an expert years ago by a big IP firm and looking back after your seminar realize the mistakes I made. No harm was done as the case settled quickly before much happened. Thanks again Steve and give my commendation to Nadine, she’s a terrific presenter.
I took my first course with you in Boston many years ago and remember it as still one of the best conferences I’d ever attended. When I saw this course and that you were personally presenting I knew it would be worth coming from Florida. I was not disappointed. I’ve contacted my attorneys and told them to tell their colleagues I’m honing my craft and to send me cases!
I’m very pleased I was able to attend. Although I’m a rookie in the expert witness world, I’m sure your training has given me a head start that many of my colleagues never had. Thanks and I look forward to attending another seminar in the future.
Thank you again ever so much for your prep on the recent case – the lawyer thinks I’m brilliant and I owe you tremendous credit for that!
