“If a 3-pointer in basketball goes “swish,” what sound does trial testimony make when opposing counsel sputters and gets sarcastic? [Case] trial testimony went very strongly. Opposing made no headway, frustrated. After the cross-exam, neither counsel had further questions. A juror submitted a paper with questions to the judge. Both counsel approach and whisper with the judge for 10-minutes, I’m still on the stand. Then the judge dismisses counsel, turns to me and asks 3 open-ended questions that I respond to with detailed teaching explanations. Opposing kept objecting, judge said he wanted the jurors to hear the answers. Thank you both for sharing your expertise to make this type of day possible.”
“I look forward to seeing you at your fall meeting. Thank you once more.”
“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 have been very busy with my TE work and I just wanted to let you know how things are going and once again say thank you for your help.”
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 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.”
“I have attended a significant number of continuing education courses over the years and I am hard pressed to remember any that were as informative as “How to Start, Build and Run a Successful Expert Witness Practice.” As you suggested, I am strongly encouraging the physician(s), I am to be working with, to attend one of your seminars. I look forward to attending another one myself. Thank you for your assistance.”
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 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.
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.
