West Chester, PA (PRWEB) June 8, 2008 -
Tim Rayne, a Personal Injury attorney with the full service Chester County, Pennsylvania, law firm of MacElree Harvey, has earned his LL.M. in Trial Advocacy from the Temple University Beasley School of Law.
The LL.M. is an advanced legal degree commonly known as a Master's Degree. Temple Law School's Trial Advocacy LL.M. is the only one of its kind in the country and is designed to sharpen the trial skills of practicing litigators.
Tim attended the program with thirty-five other lawyers. Approximately half were local lawyers and the others attended the program even though they practiced in far away states such as Florida, Nevada and Alabama.
The Master's Program was a full-year commitment. It started with a two week "Boot Camp" and then continued with weekly lectures on Thursday nights and "performance weekends" once per month.
The program offered instruction and performances on all phases of trial practice including depositions, motions, expert witnesses, opening statements, direct and cross examinations and closing arguments. Tim had the opportunity to try five civil cases including a civil assault, motor vehicle accident, products liability, medical malpractice and employment discrimination case.
"I really enjoyed the program. We had excellent instruction from hot shots in the trial business and got tons of hands-on in the courtroom experience. I feel that my trial skills and confidence have improved immensely," said Tim.
For thirteen years, Tim has been assisting people who have been injured in accidents. Tim has extensive experience negotiating with insurance companies and has tried both personal injury and death cases.
Tim handles diverse types of personal injury cases including vehicle accidents (car, truck, motorcycle and bicycle crashes); slip or trip and falls; medical malpractice; and products liability (injuries caused by defective products).
Tim was named one of the area's Top Personal Injury Litigators in Main Line Today Magazine.
