Description

Preparation is the key to success for any trial. While the judge, jury, your adversary and your client get to see you in action during the trial, it is the time spent before the trial, developing your theory, dissecting the evidence, preparing your witnesses and shaping your opening and closing statements that will determine your success.

Trial preparation begins from the day the case is retained. Honing in early on the theory of your case will enable you to move the case efficiently through the discovery process, depositions and motion practice. If the building blocks of your case are properly placed, the actual trial preparation comes naturally.

This CLE program, presented by Jeffrey M. Kimmel, one of New York’s leading civil trial attorneys, will explore and highlight the core aspects of trial preparation. While styles and approaches to trial work depend on individual personalities and strengths, preparation is universally necessary to success.

Objectives:

  • Develop and articulate the theory of your case as early as possible.
  • Consider trial preparation throughout each phase of the case.
  • Grasp and understand how each phase of the case should be directed toward trial preparation.
  • Learn how to prepare evidence, witnesses and clients for the trial experience.

Lecturer Bio

Jeffrey M. Kimmel, Esq.

Jeffrey Kimmel has positioned himself as a fierce business leader in the legal industry. In his role as Managing Partner and CEO, he has navigated the firm’s rapid growth and elevated its status to one of the leading personal injury law firms in New York.

As a graduate of Wharton Business School and Brooklyn Law School, Jeff has meticulously combined his entrepreneurial business background with his keen analytical legal sense to cultivate not just a dynamic law firm, but an effective, client-oriented business that supports and promotes lawyer development, firm efficiency processes, case value maximization protocols, staffing diversity and community outreach programs.

Jeff prides himself in developing a trusted firm, widely respected by the industry and clients. To Jeff, the firm’s reputation is paramount to the success of the ever-growing list of satisfied clients. This has led to consistent referrals, not just from those in need of legal representation, but also by referring attorneys who appreciate the wealth of experience and extraordinary efforts put forth to ensure that the value of each case be maximized.

As an accomplished trial attorney, Jeff makes certain that the firm spares no expense in prosecuting any case. While the insurance companies battling the firm are armed with unlimited resources, SSKB’s history of financial achievements has enabled our trial attorneys to prepare and try cases unencumbered by costs.

Jeff’s extraordinary efforts have been recognized in and out of the courtroom. He is widely known in the industry for his various professional publications, some of which include articles published in the New York Law Journal and a chapter on trial preparation and strategy contributed to the popular “Inside the Minds” series by Thomson Reuter. Additionally, Jeff was invited as an inaugural contributor to the New York Law Journal’s “Smart Litigator" and has provided commentary and expertise on News 12, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox news stations as a legal analyst.

Jeff is also seen as a new thought leader within the legal community as he constantly reciprocates his passion and knowledge of the law as a sought after lecturer and mentor. He frequently lectures attorneys on trial-related topics for the National Business Institute (NBI), NYS Academy of Trial Lawyers, New York County Lawyers’ Association and Brooklyn Law School. Additionally, he participates in CLE webinars for Lawline, Clear Law Institute, and myLawCLE. Jeff also regularly participates as a judge in Yale University’s annual Mock Trial competition.

A proud and active participant in a number of professional organizations, Jeff serves as a current member of the Advisory Committee at Nassau-Suffolk Law Services and the We Care Committee at Nassau County Bar Association. He was highly active in the New York County Lawyers’ Association, serving as a former member of the Board of Directors, chair of the Committee on Committees, and chair of the Young Lawyers section, where he established a successful Mentoring Program.

“I’m extremely fortunate to be a part of the continuous growth and success of SSKB. The lawyers and staff all work hard to achieve meaningful results for our clients and restore for them some security and normalcy in their lives after a traumatic event. There’s a lot of satisfaction in that.”
