The New Jersey Association for Justice Educational Foundation, Inc. and the San Francisco Trial Lawyers Association present:
TROJAN HORSE METHOD
Trojan Horse is a revolutionary trial skills program that trains you to win in the courtroom. The exceptional trial
lawyer will have three things: presentation skills, emotional congruence and a trial structure. In this seminar the
THM Team will give examples of witness preparation as well as opening and closing statements. Trojan Horse
has systematized the learning process. It works for new lawyers and seasoned lawyers alike.
The method developed by co-founder of THM, Alejandro Blanco. The method offers a segmental approach to
developing and delivering information in an opening and closing. Learn how to present the information during
trial so that the evidence is set out clearly in opening, highlighted in trial and the presentation of evidence, and
sealed in closing. The method is premised on science, principles of persuasion and many years of forging the
techniques in the courtroom. This is an introduction to the science, method, and general presentation skills that
give you a powerful delivery before the jury.
WITNESS PREP AND DIRECT EXAMINATION
The value of most cases rests upon having a credible plaintiff. Dan Ambrose will explain the process that he has
mastered of getting plaintiffs to open up and allow themselves to re-experience the trauma that altered the
course and trajectory of their lives. When plaintiffs are able to do this, the jury not only hears the story, but they
witness and experience it. And it is much easier to tell the authentic, true and moving stories of loss and
courage, when we have actually witnessed them ourselves. This is only half the battle though. The other half is
directing the plaintiff in trial, this will also be demonstrated and explained.
Nothing is truly mastered without applying the principles of “deliberate practice” Dan Ambrose will show how
the training regimens of chess grand masters, concert pianist, and Olympic champions, can be applied to the
mastering of direct examination, cross-examination, and opening/closing arguments.
