Adam Boettiger, Host & Moderator
Keith Mitnik is senior trial counsel for Morgan & Morgan, the largest personal injury law firm in America. At Morgan & Morgan, there are departments that handle every type of contingency fee plaintiff’s case: general PI, medical malpractice, product liability, mass torts, commercial contingency, and so on. Keith’s job is to try cases with all of these departments and, when they do not settle, to join forces at trial with the other lawyers handling them.
As a result, Keith is in trial with all kinds of cases almost every month—sometimes two or three times a month. He has a unique perspective on tactics that are currently in vogue with defense lawyers, and he has a chance to develop countermeasures. Most importantly, he has abundant opportunities to try out new strategies aimed at maximizing the likelihood of getting just results for clients. If he is not in trial, he spends much of his time working on new ideas and refining existing ones. For many years, his work has also involved teaching these methods to other plaintiffs’ lawyers around the country.
Winning at the beginning is the key to winning at the end. Keith Mitnik has developed a systematic way to make this ideal a reality in all your trials. Keith’s easy to follow process is the driving force behind his best selling book, Don’t Eat The Bruises, and a big reason why it has become a Trialguides classic. In a compact 20 minute presentation, Keith will share the steps of designing an opening statement that will assure you are ahead, not just after your opening, but still ahead after the defense delivers it’s opening. Then he will take live questions for up to 90 minutes. The Q & A is an opportunity to experience the power of this system when applied to actual cases and to gain a deeper understanding of why it works.
