Elizabeth Larrick has a passion for preparing witnesses to their fullest ability.
This passion began in 2012 after many failed client depositions. Elizabeth was frustrated by the traditional preparation methods, and attended a Don Keenan seminar on Depositions. She saw Mr. Keenan’s method and took to it immediately. She studied and applied the witness preparation method on her own clients. She continued to perfect and master the method over the years to come.
Then in 2016-2017, she took part in a one-year fellowship with the renowned Keenan Law Firm in Atlanta, Georgia, allowing her the opportunity hands-on trial experience. Her role allowed her to step into trials, prep witnesses and put them on the stand in three important cases (medical malpractice in Louisville, Kentucky, a premises liability in Seattle, Washington and a wrongful death in Las Vegas, Nevada). She learned skills for trial management, case themes, focus groups, jury selection and case development.
Since returning to full-time work at her own law firm, Elizabeth has used that experience to ensure that each of her clients’ needs and concerns are individually met in time for trial. But also to assist other lawyers directly with challenging clients and cases.
She continues to teach lawyers on Witness Preparation at the Keenan Trial Institute. She served as the Co-Dean of Witness Preparation and Advanced Witness Preparation as Co-Dean for over four years. She is regularly invited to speak on the Witness Preparation topics at Keenan Trial Institute seminars over the years and other trial lawyer associations. Her goal is to help other trial attorneys work to empower their clients and strengthen their case.
