Richard Cook, a trial lawyer that represents injury victims, will speak at the Voir Dire and Jury Selection Seminar on November 5, 2014 in Indianapolis, Indiana scheduled from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Cook will explain how to make strategic use of the law governing jury selection to gain at advantage at trial.
The art of jury voir dire is one of the most important trial skills that an attorney must develop because choosing the decision-makers who will determine the outcome of the case can give the attorney an upper hand—before the trial even commences. The seminar aims to help attorneys understand juror behavior, learn how to question prospective jurors, and ultimately provide clients with the chance to obtain successful court rulings. The voir dire seminar covers the basic-to-intermediate level material and is designed for attorneys, but it may also be suitable for litigation support consultants and paralegals.
During the seminar, Cook will lecture will cover the key statues and case law affecting jury selection. In addition to explaining the grounds for challenges for cause, he will also discuss local rules and procedures to be aware of. Cook joins six other speakers for the event.
A few years after graduating from Valparaiso University School of Law, Cook went on to work as a deputy state prosecutor and Assistant United States Attorney. He has experience in a wide variety of jury trials that are both civil and criminal in nature. Today, Cook works for Yosha Cook Shartzer & Tisch, a highly-regarded Indianapolis law firm, and that focuses his practice in areas of law involving personal injury, civil rights, product liability and medical malpractice.
