Proof & Argument of Damages

Workhorse’s most essential teaching & learning experience

Social-Image-Workhorse-Damages.png

Our session, Proof & Argument of Damages, is considered by many to be the Workhorse Seminar’s most essential teaching & learning experience year after year.

It is the session where trial advocates discover the necessary ingredients needed to maximize settlements and verdicts.

We learn such lessons such as the critical nature of educating each juror on the importance of understanding that each “element” of damages is separate & distinct.

We learn the power of consortium claims (as opposed to how most lawyers devalue these claims).

We will learn tactics, techniques & strategies of making economic damage proof a “driver” of noneconomic losses.

This session can and should change the ways in which we handle the damage components of discovery and trial!

– John Romano, Romano Law Group, Lake Worth, FL

My First Trial at the 2017 Workhorse Seminar

Each year at Workhorse, My First Trial is the one session new attorneys cannot afford to miss.

It’s been an incredible experience. Absolutely invaluable. I gained so much insight, so many new perspectives and ideas that I am going to be able to immediately take back to the office. More importantly, it’s been incredibly inspiring to learn from the state’s and nation’s best plaintiff’s trial attorneys.
– Jason Thomassy, Ambler Law Group, Tampa

The wealth of information offered in this section is essential for those in their first few years of practice. From discovery to closing, young personal injury attorneys will be energized with fresh knowledge and perspective that will boost their confidence and trial skills.
