The American Association of Justice (AAJ) is a national trial bar for plaintiff attorneys that fights to protect the rights of people who have been injured as the result of negligence or misconduct. Its members handle a wide range of cases, including personal injury, medical malpractice, and product liability. As part of its mission, the AAJ hosts national conferences where plaintiff lawyers can meet to discuss new trends in their legal practice areas and learn new skills to apply to their practice.
This past weekend, the AAJ Mega College held such a program in Scottsdale, AZ, and selected Chicago lawyer Robert Kreisman to be a faculty member and speaker at its event. Bob Kreisman’s presentation focused on how to strategically plan trial strategies used in opening statement. His presentation referenced the popular trial lawyer tools Rules of the Road: A Plaintiff Lawyer’s Guide to Proving Liability, Overcoming Jury Bias, Reptile: The 2009 Manual of the Plaintiff’s Revolution, and David Ball on Damages: A Plaintiff’s Attorney’s Guide to Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Cases. The presentation was well-received and highlighted some useful strategies for crafting a convincing case at trial.
And while the AAJ Mega College had informative seminars that resembled other AAJ conventions, it was in fact the first of its kind. Trial lawyers from across the U.S. were in attendance and ready to sharpen their trial skills, many in preparation for upcoming trials.
The attendees were not only able to view informative lectures on trial techniques, there were also active workshops, which ranged from evaluating potential personal injury cases, reviewing ways to draft effective discovery, and reviews the trial elements of voir dire, opening statements, and closing arguments. As a faculty member Robert Kreisman assisted in conducting various workshops and was able to interact with many of his peers from around the country.
These types of seminars and information sessions are essential to maintaining a strong national network of plaintiff attorneys and fostering opportunities for professional development. Chicago attorney Robert Kreisman was honored to participate and would encourage his fellow plaintiff lawyers to attend these types of events regularly.
Personal injury attorney Robert Kreisman of Chicago’s Kreisman Law Offices has been handling Illinois personal injury claims, such as Illinois auto accidents or Illinois truck accidents, for over 30 years, serving those areas in and around Cook County, including Cicero, Naperville, Schaumburg, and Deerfield.
