Wilck a Moderator at the ABA’s National Legal Malpractice ConferenceApril 27, 2016 | | |
David Wilck will be a moderator at the American Bar Association’s National Legal Malpractice Conference in April 27-29, 2016, in New Orleans, LA.
The session is entitled, “Effective Impeachment and Rehabilitation in the High-Stakes Legal Malpractice Case.”
Legal malpractice cases typically raise issues of ethics, morality, and “right and wrong” that are susceptible to use of impeachment and rehabilitation devices and techniques. This panel will use a hypothetical to explore the most important sources of impeachment evidence, and a jury consultant will provide input regarding juror reactions to different types of impeachment and rehabilitation strategies. The panelists will demonstrate impeachment by way of character evidence; prior inconsistent statements and acts; bias, prejudice, interest, influence, and motive; and techniques for rehabilitating the witness following such credibility attacks. Attendees will become better equipped to plan, anticipate and execute effective witness impeachment and rehabilitation.
