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!
“Steve, without knowing you, knowing SEAK, and going to all the conferences that I have attended with your firm for expert witness training, and without your “one-on-one” training, this case would not have ended the way it eventually did. 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.”
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!
“Looking at 2008, my forensic revenue (gross) was about 200k(up from 60 K when we met), clinical about 240K. I expect the latter to decrease in 2009 with the economy. The forensic is more unpredictable, but Jan. has been gangbusters. I expect to bill between 30 and 38 K, depending on whether one particular case goes to trial next week(or settles). I am very grateful that I discovered you along life’s course. Besides being remunerative, I love the work itself–the reviews, the reports, the depositions and trials and also believe that I am making a contribution to my field in the process.”—Practice Development Consulting Client
I recently had a depo in Florida and it went so well that the lawyer thought I had been doing them for years. I told him no, just good training from SEAK.
“I wanted to tell you I can’t express how appreciative I am for the help you gave me to prepare for my first deposition. I would have been smeared without your prep and your books really have helped me put out quality professional products. I have had consistent success because my reports are factual, organized and I work very hard to stay away from the pitfalls I learned from you. This really fast tracked me and helped me avoid a lifetime of hard lesions. Not that I won’t have any, but it gave me a great headstart. Thank you so much!”
“Thanks again Jim. I have all the business I can handle now, both for defense and plaintiffs. I’ve now reviewed over 130 cases in the past ~ 6 years, in several dozen states. When I’ve been deposed or gone to trial, your advice from your books, and my notes from the live courses, have been invaluable. Many of the tips and attorney tricks and tactics have come up and I’ve felt much more confident responding in an artful way. In fact, often, the attorney tactics that I’ve faced were straight out of one your books.”
I thoroughly enjoyed the training and found it extremely helpful. The faculty was very informative and kept me interested and entertained. Looking forward to more training in the future. Thank you for your efforts.
“I wish to express my satisfaction to both Jim and Judge Chernoff for the exceptionally fine presentation this past Friday & Saturday, at FEWA here in Las Vegas. I’ve already changed my profile online and have put the sample report with Jim’s input on file for the next time I write an expert report. I have been providing expert testimony for nineteen years now. Wish I had the advantage of what I learned in two days from Jim & the Judge in all my depositions, trial testimony & reports over all those years. Can’t thank you enough”
I would like to sincerely thank you for all that you have done to help improve my professional presence in the courtroom, to be more confident while testifying, and to actually enjoy doing it.
