Available August 1, 2014, “Trying Your First Case gives lawyers both young and experienced, a ‘playbook’ to use in preparing a case for trial.” Co-authored by Dickert, Chapter 8 focuses on “issues relating to the choice of the witnesses to use, meeting and preparing the witness, preparation and use of a trial notebook, organization of the direct examination of the witnesses, use of documentary evidence, and handling the difficult witness.”
