Join nationally recognized speaker and trial consultant Dr. Daniel Dugan for this lively seminar. This seminar will cover how to use the Story-Telling model to develop a central theme and sub-themes for your case along with a dynamic, plot-driven case presentation. Creating an opening outline step-by-step from an actual case is included in the extended hour workshops. These time tested principles will help you win your next trial. You will learn how to present opening and closing statements by telling the jury a story that will engage the jury. By developing a strong theme with supporting sub-themes that jurors can visualize your case becomes a “story” that is better remembered and understood by the jury. This seminar will cover:

• History of stories in relaying information
– Elements of effective stories
– Where do themes come from?
• Fables
• Novels
• Movies
• Jurors’ personal histories
• How jurors process story information
• The Story-Telling template—using an actual case from your files

You will walk away from this seminar with effective strategies that can be used to help you win your next trial.
