This trial practice handbook was written by construction lawyers who, collectively, have decades of trial experience, and is focused only on construction cases. The book is generally organized to follow the sequence of a trial. It begins with a chapter on the Art of Persuasion, written by a nationally renowned professor of trial practice who explains the importance of story-telling techniques and how they should be an indispensable part of trial preparation. The book then generally follows the sequence of a trial, with chapters on jury selection, opening statements, direct and cross examination, handling experts and exhibits, jury instructions and closing. There are also chapters that address pre-trial evidentiary motions, enforcement of judgments and preserving the record for appeal.
