Why do you keep fucking around with trials? Seems like a gross waste of resources. Just settle shit and move on

Don't the insurance cos keep tabs on all lawyers/firms? If you don't litigate some, you're not getting decent settlements.

I want to be a member of the American board of trial advocates so I can put a logo in my email signature

It’s an incredibly prestigious organization to be in and insurance cos will respect you if they know you’re a member.

In California you’re allowed to do a 2-5 minute mini opening before voir dire. It’s supposed to help with jury selection. I want to confront the weaknesses of my case in mini opening to help me pick out biased jurors during selection more easily.

Ladies and gentlemen. I want to say a few brief things before jury selection.

Why are we here? This case is about the collision between my client ****** and the Defendant *******, fault is not at issue, as the defendants admitted fault in this case 3 weeks ago, over two years after the accident occurred.

Our client’s vehicle was struck on the side, causing $1,554.00 in property damage to her vehicle. Our client’s vehicle was driveable from the scene.

Most importantly, ****** never had pain in her right shoulder before this accident. For the first time in her life, on the night of this accident, ****** started feeling pain in her right shoulder which has lasted until this very day. She underwent months and months conservative care for her right shoulder, including chiropractic therapy, and multiple rounds of shoulder injections.

The evidence will show that her treating physician, Doctor *****, says she needs surgery to cure the pain in her right shoulder. She is scheduled to undergo that surgery next month. Even the paid defense advocate, Dr. ******* will say that this accident is one of the causes of her ongoing shoulder pain. Dr. ******* also says that Ms. ****** is a lot more susceptible to right shoulder injury than the average person.

The defense is going to be spending over fifty thousand dollars on this case, hiring experts to say that the forces in this accident could not have caused a “biomechanical failure” None of these experts will actually be saying that she could not have been injured in this accident.

None of these experts know whether or not our client’s elbows were bent at the time of the accident, despite them saying that it would be useful to know that. Yet the defense, has not admitted to this date, that Ms. ***** was even injured at all in this collision.

I just wanted to give you a brief outline of what the evidence presented is going to be and give you an understanding of why we are here. I’ll be speaking in more detail soon.

Is it better for the mini-opening to be more candid about your case weaknesses, since you can throw people off who latch onto them?
