Studies have shown that how you tell your client’s story to the jury is case determinative.  An expert story-teller can often overcome evidentiary holes or difficult facts.  Human nature takes over in the minds of jurors because everyone likes to be both informed and even somewhat entertained.  One particularly telling statistic is that jurors tend to have made up their minds after opening statements.  Listen to some experts at developing the story for the jury and learn about what you can do and what you shouldn’t do to present your case in the best possible way.
