As a trial lawyer, you probably know what goes into client preparation like the back of your hand but there could still be things missing in your process that you wish to improve on. 

In this episode, I’m going to discuss four simple advice tips for successful client prep. These are simple yet sometimes overlooked, tried and true tips for nearly every single client and every single case. 

These are small things you don’t want to miss during client preparation so you can learn more about the client, have an easier time preparing the case, and have more success at your client depositions.

In this episode, you will hear:

  • Why you should prepare the client alone
  • The pitfalls of preparing people together
  • Giving the client homework before the first client preparation session
  • The importance of creating timelines together and making them interactive
  • Breaking down the client preparation into two sessions
