James V. Painter to Speak on “Building Your Civil Trial Skills” at the National Business Institutes’s CLE

In the high-stakes world of civil litigation, how do you gain the advantage you need when every case is so different? Whether you’re new to civil litigation or have practiced in this area in the past, having a firm foundation in the basics is essential to your success. Since each case needs special tailoring, your ability to handle the day-to-day issues with ease can really help when you get thrown a curve ball. Do you have a strong enough understanding of the fundamentals to handle whatever situation comes your way?

This comprehensive seminar will be held on December 20, 2012 from 9 to 4:30 p.m. at the Clarion Suites off Washington Road in Augusta, Georgia. Mr. Painter will present on “How To Present Your Case at Trial” and touch on opening statements and effectively delivering the burden of proof, effectively using evidence to support your case, tips and techniques for direct examination, successful cross examination, how and when to make objections, using rebuttal to cast doubt on the other side, and powerful closing arguments.
