Preparing for Witness Testimony

Preparing a witness for an interview at trial is a huge undertaking, and Partner Michelle R. Peirce, explains why it is so important to not only get ready for direct testimony but also for the cross examination. When preparing clients for a deposition or courtroom testimony, we remind them that truth is the most important thing. They must be prepared to answer questions about the worst evidence and testimony while still maintaining a composed, calm demeanor. Commitment to thorough preparation is crucial for successful representation. We support our clients through the highs and lows of a case and work closely to understand every nuance of the case in an effort to achieve the desired outcome. Hinckley Allen prides itself on being nimble and staffs every case with the right size team whether a single attorney is needed or a larger, multidisciplinary team is required.
