Topic: A New Philosophy of Witness Preparation by John McCabe

Blurb: Most lawyers are taught that deposing an adverse witness comes down to three things: Getting their story, locking them into that story, and getting admissions. To counter, the lawyer defending the deposition often advises their witness to say as little as possible, essentially: “Yes,” “No,” and “I don’t know.” While effectively muting a witnesses can mitigate some risks, the technique comes at an enormous cost if applied across all witnesses. In this presentation, veteran litigation consultant John G. McCabe, Ph.D., will share his “New Philosophy of Witness Preparation.” In it, John emphasizes the importance of a good case story and how that story is told primarily not by the lawyer, but by the witnesses. Each witness, therefore, must be evaluated on two dimensions, their performance and the content of their testimony, to assess each witness’ ability to move the case story forward. It is only after making this determination that a witness can be properly prepared either to play a bit part or a leading role with their testimony.

Bio: John G. McCabe, Ph.D. is the Founder of John G. McCabe Consulting, Inc. Having worked in litigation consulting for 17 years, he specializes in preparing witnesses to testify. John also designs and performs a wide variety of studies (surveys, focus groups, mock trials, etc.) related to jury behavior. Results from these studies have informed trial strategy in a wide range of civil and criminal cases. He earned his Ph.D. from Claremont Graduate University, where his research focused exclusively on juror and jury behavior, bias, and the impact of emotions on legal decision- making.

What Our Members Say

  • Mauricio Leon de la Barra Mexico and California Attorney at Law

    “TEN can be described in TEN words: An extraordinary source of referrals, resources and very good friends. I got my first referral a few days after my first meeting. Its members have always provided my clients with outstanding legal solutions in different areas of law. And I have the honor of considering each member a very good friend.”

  • Larry A. Rothstein, Esq. Trial Lawyer & Civil Litigator

    “Although I have been a member of other professional networking organizations, David’s idea of one limited to small and solo law firms is both unique and exciting. Many of us in small and solo practices have developed expertise in limited practice areas. This makes for a particular dynamic because we are able to refer clients with specific needs to those having the specialized skills to handle them.”

  • Cynthia Elkins Employment Law

    “Have been a member of TEN since its inception. It is a wonderful and very cost efficient resource for solos and attorneys from small firms as this is my primary referral source both for receiving referrals and giving out referrals and this wonderful group of members helps to expand my referral base.”
