As a practicing lawyer, you've realized by now that there is a large gap between understanding the law in theory and understanding how to tackle a trial. For many lawyers, actually taking a case to trial, especially a personal injury suit, is a bit of a mythical white whale — floating out there in the great oceans of litigation, but rarely encountered.
Now, for whatever reason, you may face actually heading into the courtroom to represent your client. As any successful trial lawyer can tell you, even an excellent understanding of the legislation and precedent rulings that pertain to your case is often not enough to pull out a win in the courtroom. A great trial lawyer also understands and practices the presentation and procedural skills necessary to get to the heart of their clients' stories and avoid losing valuable ground on technicalities.
