Personal Injury Boot Camp 2 - Home



The Personal Injury Boot Camp 2 Webinar Series provides an excellent opportunity for young attorneys to gain insight from leading trial attorneys in Florida on issues that tend to come up over and over in our practices. The topics for this year’s series were selected based on feedback from FJA young lawyer members who shared what they wanted covered. Series participants will be provided with information and materials that can be put to use immediately in their practices. Best of all, because the series is entirely based online, you can attend from the comfort of your office. This is easily the most convenient and cost effective way for FJA members to gain invaluable knowledge on some of the most timely issues faced by plaintiff trial attorneys today.

Problems with Your Record
In general, your record is like your reputation – guard it with your life. Making sure the appellate court has all the information it needs to protect your huge final judgment is the first step to success.

Don’t Lose Your Case in Closing Argument

Knowing what to say, and what not to say, is the key to a closing argument that doesn’t turn your dream verdict into a nightmare. And then there’s the problem of making sure you preserve issues caused by defense counsel’s bad argument.

Making Sure an Appellate Lawyer Will Take Your Case
Appeals are a specialty practice. Different procedure, different judges, and they require a different skill set. If a defendant is trying to get out from under your large verdict then you need to have an appellate lawyer. But appellate lawyers can be choosey, so you need to have a case they want. Here are some tips on how to make your case one an appellate lawyer wants to help you win.
