DHD Litigators to Present: The ABC’s of Civil and Criminal Trial Preparation in New Jersey

Dughi, Hewit & Domalewski, P.C. is proud to announce that Louis John Dughi, Jr.Craig A. DomalewskiMary Elizabeth Gazi, and Brandon D. Minde will be presenting an online seminar on New Jersey trial preparation on Tuesday, February 26, 2019 at 12:00pm EST (estimated duration: 75 minutes).

A trial is the culmination of the preparation of the case – preparation that has been designed from the start of discovery to develop the facts and evidence to win at trial. The trial attorney must start at the end (what needs to be proven at trial) to identify the elements of each claim and defense and then design a Blueprint of how he or she will develop and establish the facts and evidence to support the claims and defenses of the case. Like any building process, there are multiple stages to design, assess and redesign the Blueprint and strategies. The final Blueprint is a trial notebook that defines trial themes and organizes the presentation of the facts and evidence by witness to prove the facts needed to win. An effective trial book keeps the trial attorney focused and instills confidence that he or she is prepared and ready.

In this program, partners at Dughi, Hewit & Domalewski, P.C., a premier New Jersey boutique law firm with extensive litigation and trial experience, will help the practitioner learn to develop a Blueprint as it pertains to written discovery, fact deposition and expert discovery, dispositive and pre-trial motions, rules of evidence, trial issues and more when litigating New Jersey cases and getting those cases ready for trial.

Learning Objectives:

  • Outline the Blueprint of the case, which becomes the blueprint for the trial
  • Determine the theme for the trial
  • Prepare the witness examinations and exhibits required to explain and prove the case
  • Create a Trial Book to organize witness examinations, documents and exhibits
  • Present and repeat the trial themes from opening statement to closing argument

This webcast will stream live on Tuesday, February 26, 2019 at 12:00pm EST (estimated duration: 75 minutes) and will be taught by Louis John Dughi, Jr.Craig A. DomalewskiMary Elizabeth Gazi, and Brandon D. Minde.  To register for the webcast, click on the link listed below.
