Witness Training

The deposition process and being called to testify in a live trial or arbitration can be a terrifying and worrisome experience. CSI provides witness evaluation and training services whether you are taking a deposition or headed to the courtroom. Our Witness Effectiveness Training process prepares witnesses in three phases:

Witness Evaluation

CSI litigation consultants identify aspects of demeanor and delivery that frequently undermine the credibility of otherwise effective witnesses. Our consultants take witnesses through a series of communication procedures to evaluate their potential effectiveness while on the stand, and identify potential problems with witnesses’ communication styles.

Witness Training

Assisting the lawyers in the preparation of an important witness is considered critical to ensure his or her testimony has maximum juror appeal. The training is conducted by CSI litigation consultants, in concert with the attorneys working on the case. The training addresses both content and delivery.

Witness Effectiveness Testing with Jurors

The best assessment of how an individual is likely to perform in a formal, legal setting includes observation and practice in a trial-like setting. In terms of evaluating witnesses, a true measure of how a witness will perform is best obtained by simulating the pressures and pace of the courtroom. CSI facilitates training sessions approximate with live direct and cross-examination before mock jurors in a trial-like setting.
