Help witnesses build upon their strengths
Most witnesses are novices at giving courtroom testimony, and thus are often anxious, combative or simply ineffective communicators during depositions and on the witness stand. Jurors frequently misinterpret a witnesses’ anxiety as deception, and thus reject the testimony of a perfectly honest, but nervous witness. JRI’s Witness Workshops are tailored to help witnesses build upon their strengths and become comfortable in the courtroom setting. Witness Workshops typically involve three to four sessions, lasting between two to four hours each. Witnesses are given the tools to earn the trust of jurors and thus be viewed as credible, trustworthy and persuasive.
