Trial Structure: Turning Ordinary into Extraordinary

Via Zoom: Thursday, September 23rd at 12 Noon

Trial Structure

is a repeatable system, a formula for success, that organizes evidence into a powerful trial presentation. After attorneys put their case’s evidence into the Trial Structure, they will have an opening statement that will guide them throughout the trial step by step, so the jury can experience how the defendant was negligent, and find the true value of the case.

Along with the other Trial Structure Masters, Attorney Charles Bennett has developed the substructures within Trial Structure that simplify the creation and presentation process and increase the jury’s focus on the defense’s betrayal. His patient teaching ability and aggressive structuring style have combined to help lawyers around the country win trials for far more than they ever thought possible.

Trial Structure's Alejandro Blanco and Ilya Lerma consulted on this case where the last pre-trial offer from the Defense was for the Plaintiff to pay $250,000. A San Luis Obispo County jury awarded more than $20 million to an injured woman and the families of a man killed in a 2016 attack by a retired police dog in Grover Beach. Original Article:</a
