Giving them new skills to testify with confidence.

Your toughest witnesses are our speciality. We understand emotional plaintiffs, abrasive pro athletes, defensive professionals, unpredictable blue collar workers, distraught family members.
These outward behaviors are just symptoms, driven by deeper problems.
We have proven practices to meticulously diagnose and resolve them.
We weren’t trained to do this. Even if we prep for days, we still worry. Will they do the right thing, will they be confident when the pressure is on?

We know that impactful testimony is the result of insightful training. First, breaking down the old habits that aren’t working. Then, replacing them with new behaviors, new thinking patterns, and new ways of communicating that exude confidence.
We tailor our training to each individual. Then apply our unique, proven practices with diligence and compassion.
Our client was not someone you wanted to be around. After Deborah worked with her, she was almost transformed into a different person for the jury.
Confidence is a skill that can be taught.
A witness who is scared, angry, confused, worried or defensive can become
unflappable at deposition, trial or hearings. The jury will see your witness confidently deliver testimony in a calm, clear and composed manner.
Often in cases the challenging part is that even if what the witness says is logical or believable, people won’t listen to them because of the way they are saying what they are saying. Deborah comes into a case and takes a witness like that and turns them around.
