NJAJ favorites from Act of Communication™ Katherine James, Alan Blumenfeld and Andrew Caple-Shaw are back at The Boardwalk Seminar 2020: A Digital Experience. Their track record is 40,000 lawyers trained, 2,000 cases to trial, 1,000’s of witnesses prepared, and dozens of training courses and programs presented.

You may know that they were the first to unleash the power of theatre to lawyers and its emotional truth to witnesses. BUT what you MAY NOT know is…in addition to preparing people live in the room for four decades, ACT of Communication™ has been preparing witnesses virtually for the past 10 years. They have come armed with Katherine’s nationally recognized Witness Preparation secrets in order to help you answer that burning question: “Has Covid Changed Everything About Preparing Witnesses?”

And now, Katherine James has written a book; Harvesting Witnesses’ Stories: How to Get Your Client The Second Best Life In The World by Maximizing Human Damages is available from AAJ Press.
