Online Trial and Oral Advocacy
Online trials and oral arguments are becoming the new normal, but they require forethought and practice different from in-person advocacy. Jim Lofton can help you master the skills you need to be an effective online advocate.
- Where do you look and how do you connect with the judge?
- How do you develop arguments and examinations that count?
- When and how should you use visual aids and exhibits that will be viewed on a small screen?
- How do you best adjust your camera angle and video feed?
- How should you communicate with staff and co-counsel while participating in an online court appearance?
- How do you maintain courtroom demeanor while online?
Lofton can also help with a full range of traditional advocacy and trial prep services:
- Developing themes and theories that work.
- Interviewing and preparing witnesses for peak testimony.
- Structuring oral arguments that are concise, polished and to the point.
- Developing opening statements and closing arguments that provide a narrative “hook” that engages and captures the imagination of the listener.
- Constructing tight direct and cross examinations that provide the most impact.
- Using exhibits and visual aids that are engaging and that matter.
Because your message matters.
