Program Chairs David Mason and Courtney Mann have put together what is anticipated to be one of the most heavily attended seminars of the year.

This seminar teaches you how to get maximum value out of your personal injury case at trial without relying on blackboard medical bills as a damages floor:

  • Have you ever wondered how to try an auto case without introducing a single medical bill?
  • Have you ever struggled to find a way to get the jury to understand the true value of your client’s soft tissue injuries and treatment course?

This program has been uniquely engineered to focus on proving all aspects of pain and suffering damages through every phase of trial: jury selection, opening statement, direct exam of your injured client, direct exam of a treating physician, use of exhibits, cross exam of the defendant driver, cross exam of a defense physician, and closing argument.

An incredible list of trial lawyers have been assembled to address each of these critical topics. This will be a power-packed seminar for attorneys of all skill and experience levels.

Simply put, if you represent injured people you cannot afford to miss this one-of-a-kind seminar.
