  Preparing a Witness
Timothy R. Engler, Rembolt Ludtke LLP

Witness testimony can make or break a case, and witness preparation is the best way to ensure there are no last-minute surprises. This session will cover how best to prepare a witness for testimony at trial or deposition.

 2:30 pm – 2:45 pm   Break
 2:45 pm – 3:45 pm


Pretrial Motions/Trial Strategy
Daniel E. Klaus, Rembolt Ludtke LLP
Sheila A. Bentzen, Rembolt Ludtke LLP

A successful case does not only involve the trial itself – there are many steps to reaching trial, including motion practice. This session will provide attorneys with an understanding of the importance of pretrial motions and how to include motions in the strategy for trial.

 3:45 pm – 4:45 pm   Closing Arguments
Robert B. Creager, Anderson, Creager and Wittstruck, P.C., L.L.O.

How important is an effective closing argument? Some say cases are won or lost with voir dire – yet, an effective closing argument can flip a juror’s opinion. This session will cover the elements of an effective closing argument, including how to structure the argument based upon the type of case and what should and should not be included in the closing.
