Ottenwess Law partners David Ottenwess and Sarah Cherry join Judge Julie Gatti and Bowman and Brooke Managing Partner Jodi Munn Schebel as panelists for the “Best Practices For Effective (Virtual) Advocacy and Tips for the Young Lawyer” presentation at the MDTC Winter Conference on November 4, 2022.
The panel discussed the notable upward trend of large jury awards and the evolution of aggressive attorneys. This change in culture and the now common-place shield of virtual platforms has cultivated an almost accepted practice of bullying opposing counsel. This is not limited to just one side. Not only are highly experienced attorneys getting bullied, but young lawyers, in particular, are absorbing the brunt of this trend in incivility and are being virtually silenced and shamed for their youth and/or gender.
This presentation will provided tools for young (and experienced) attorneys on how to recognize escalating situations and how to handle aggressive or out of control depositions and not be embarrassed by the transcript.
