    Collapse From File to Trial: 8 Keys to Success in Court & Beyond (Ridgway)

    Master cutting-edge persuasion tools and techniques

    Judge Drummond was a successful trial lawyer for two decades and has spent the last decade doing one thing – presiding over jury and bench trials. Combining his own experience with his jury surveys, he brings you persuasion techniques that you can use from the day the case comes into your office to verdict.

     

    Make a good first impression with opposing counsel, the judge and the jury

    Making a good first impression is persuasion. Equip yourself with a checklist for jury selection, opening statements, direct examination, cross examination and closing arguments. Discover the top ten things a judge wants during a trial.

     

    Acknowledge the hierarchy of attention in the courtroom

    People pay attention to everything that happens in a courtroom, but unless the judge remembers it back in chambers or the jury remembers it in the deliberation room it cannot be effective.

     

    Understand the power of the Trial Notebook

    The Trial Notebook is the most ignored but most powerful tool for all phases of the case.

    Collapse Quiet Title Actions in Western PA (Ridgway)

    Get an overview of the law of quiet title or ejectment

    Quiet Title Actions are brought when title to real property is ambiguous. The boundaries are not clear; sellers of a house that has been passed down for generations find out they have no deed or legal title to the house — no one bothered to change the records; fraudulent conveyance of a deed by forged deed or coercion has occurred.
    The process is very detailed and not well known
    to most attorneys filing these actions.

     

    Topics to be covered

    • Review the typical types of problems
    • Learn what you need to know and do when taking one of these cases
    • Know which court has jurisdiction
    • Learn the procedure
    • Ancillary Issues

    This course has been approved for 3 CE credits for Title Insurance agents.
