The Amazing Case

Illustrations and Demonstrations of the Trial of a
Commercial Case
Thomas A. Mauet and Michael P. Cash

Renowned trial lawyers and instructors, Thomas A. Mauet and Michael P. Cash, will invigorate the way you approach and execute litigation. Guaranteed.

When jurors think of “courtroom drama,” they envision tearful testimony and powerful arguments. How do you persuade a jury when your fight for justice involves a seemingly emotionless commercial case? Tom Mauet and Mike Cash will show you how, with the flair, professionalism and impact that you should expect from such a dynamic team.

In The Amazing Case, Mauet and Cash demonstrate — by trying the case to you, the jury — how to present both the complexities and the mundane aspects of a commercial matter in an appealing, engaging manner. They will show you how to unlock powerful, hidden emotional keys. You have probably seen demonstrations before. The difference in this program is the advocates. Mauet and Cash are accomplished teachers, but first and foremost they are trial lawyers. As their reputations and egos are secure, they approach each stage of this case with their total focus on your success
at trial.

From either side of the bar, you will gain tips to educate and persuade the jury. Their direct and cross-examination of the financial expert alone will return dividends on your CLE investment.

Attending this special seminar will be the best investment you make in your practice this year.
