Brian Kim and Maureen Hennessey Share Strategies Behind $18.7 Million Slip-and-Fall Verdict in Trial Guides Webinar

We are proud to announce that SHK Law partners Brian Kim and Maureen Hennessey were recently featured in a Trial Guides webinar, where they discussed the methods they used to secure a groundbreaking $18.7 million jury verdict in a slip-and-fall case in November 2022. This verdict, also featured on the Trial Guides blog, is considered one of the largest of its kind.

In the webinar, which originally aired on July 12, 2023, Brian and Maureen were joined by Jesse Wilson, trial consultant and author of the Trial Guides book, “Witness Preparation: How to Tell the Winning Story.” Together, they delved into the pivotal moments in both voir dire and opening statement that anchored their case to the needs of their client and transformed their story’s shortcomings into its greatest strengths.

Key topics covered in the webinar include:

  • Using voir dire to build rapport with your jurors
  • Preparing for opening statement by taking on the defense’s “favorite facts”
  • Approaching your opening statement in spine-injury cases in nontraditional ways
  • Using Jesse Wilson’s “Victim to Victor” approach to prepare your witness and present your damages theme

This 91-minute webinar, with an additional 16 minutes of Q&A, offers a unique opportunity to learn from two accomplished trial lawyers who have demonstrated their ability to achieve exceptional results in even the most challenging cases. By sharing their insights and strategies, Brian and Maureen aim to help fellow attorneys refine their skills and maximize their clients’ recoveries.
