Start with a Storyboard Workshop

If you're a trial lawyer and want to supercharge your planning for your next opening statement, be sure to grab one of the limited seats at my new Start with a Storyboard Workshop!

Noon-4PM ET on Thursday, April 18, 2024

I created this course because it's harder than ever to reach today's jurors who are so distracted and influenced by the images on their screens. 

Imagine being able to effortlessly craft a compelling opening statement that taps into the power of filmmaking to focus attention and meet jurors on the screens where they live.

With the one simple tool I'll give you, you'll be well on your way toward achieving that goal during this exclusive workshop.

Here's what you can look forward to:

  • Jumpstart your planning: You'll learn how to use a powerful new visual strategy tool to begin planning every opening statement, so you don't start from scratch or reinvent the wheel every time.
  • Fix 3 Big Problem Areas: You'll learn why 3 specific areas of openings commonly lose jurors, so you can choose the creative techniques that will make sure you win them instead.
  • Dial up engagement: You'll learn how to build dramatic tension so you keep jurors on the edge of their seats, and to ratchet up the emotion so jurors care about your case.
  • Learn new visual thinking skills: You'll practice new hands-on skills adapted from filmmaking so you can transform dry verbal evidence into a juicy visual storyline.

At the end of the workshop, you'll have in your hands a clear plan for what you will say, show, and do during the most critical parts of your next opening.

Tickets are non-refundable. If you are unable to attend, you can invite someone else to take your place, or apply the credit to a future training - just let us know in advance of the event.
