You've likely seen dozens of trial advocacy instructors. Many were probably very good - some great. But you haven't seen anybody like Mike Cash.

Cash's timing and gift for delivery were developed in his prior life as a stand-up comic and were honed in the courtroom. They are evident and important aspects of his presentations of trial and integral to his skill as a seminar leader. Cash presents tips and tactics illustrated with tales from actual trials where they were successfully (and sometimes unsuccessfully) employed. Trials is a fast-paced program, rich with demonstration and worth every second of your attention.

See, discover and enjoy:
  • pre-trial tips that will allow you to shut down your opponent at trial;
  • high impact openings;
  • illuminating direct examinations of any kind of witness that will hold a jury's attention;
  • decisive cross-examinations which will unravel a witness;
  • how to create and use show-stopping demonstrative evidence; and
  • closing arguments that move the jury to action.
