Two outstanding Texas trial lawyers—one now an equally respected district judge—have written On the Jury Trial, a “must have” reference for any trial lawyer aspiring to excellence or seeking to maintain it. Chapter topics include voir dire, opening statement, preparing witnesses, cross examination, using exhibits, closing argument, jury research, and more. Excellent examples and “do’s and don’ts” are provided throughout. Think of this book as the senior law partner’s memo to associates on how to really try a case.
Looking for fly-on-the-wall insight into world-class trial preparation and strategy? Here it is. A behind-the-scenes tour of the inner workings of the judicial process? This book has you covered. Its combination of advice, illustration, and commentary is every bit as valuable as it is unique. Every litigator should have this book on the shelf, no matter the state in which they practice.
“On the Jury Trial combines basic structural instruction and personal analysis by those who have been in the trenches and reads like a kind of fireside chat with two highly experienced trial attorneys imparting their unique insights into trial scenarios. . . . [It] offers concrete, helpful and insightful advice to both young and experienced trial lawyers alike on how to effectively, efficiently and passionately represent their clients before a jury." —Law360
