Description: NEWBIE LITIGATOR SCHOOL - PART I 2021  Series
Episode #3: Anatomy of a Trial
September 14, 2021 at 2:00 PM CST
This webinar’s focus is on the “nuts and bolts” of a civil trial. Panelists discuss witness preparation, the selection and presentation of exhibits, motions in limine, opening statements, direct and cross-examination, and closing arguments.  They will also address issues that often arise during trials and how best to present a case to the finder of fact.
This webinar is delivered in Plain English, understandable to you even if you do not have a background in the subject. It brings you into an engaging, even sometimes humorous, conversation designed to entertain as it teaches. And, it is specifically designed to be viewed as a stand-alone webinar, meaning that you do not have to view the other webinars in the series to get a lot out of it.

Speaker 1:

Matthew Reedy

Mr. Reedy has nearly a decade of experience as a commercial litigator.  As Massey & Gail’s first hire, Matthew has litigated a wide range of matters from class actions to individual cases involving consumer fraud, ERISA withdrawal liability, breach of contract, fiduciary duty, tortious interference, and other business torts. He has taken four cases to verdict in jury and bench trials from coast to coast and successfully litigated four commercial disputes in arbitration. He has experience in every phase of litigation, from dispositive motions and discovery through judgment collection and appeal.
Matthew earned his B.A. in 2006 from Northwestern University, where he was a member of the Northwestern Debate Society. After two years as a consultant for Accenture, he enrolled in law school at the University of Notre Dame where he was on the Dean’s List, earned the Dean’s Award in Constitutional Law and graduated magna cum laude.

Speaker 2:

Richard K. Hellerman, Principal, The Law Office of Richard K. Hellerman, P.C.

Mr. Hellerman is a seasoned business litigation attorney, representing individuals and  companies in a wide range of business disputes ranging from breach of contract to emergent litigation arising out of restrictive covenants to disputes between owners of closely held businesses. He has tried dozens of cases in several states and has approximately 15 reported appellate opinions to his name. But in addition to being a tenacious litigator, Mr. Hellerman takes his role as counselor very seriously, and consistently counsels his clients to make the best and most reasonable decisions to achieve their goals, which often results in avoidance of, or at least the scaling back of, litigation. He gained his training and experience at a venerable Chicago law firm where he worked for almost a quarter century. He has leveraged his skills through his solo firm, which has been in existence since 2013. He has been honored as a Super Lawyer in Business Litigation for each year since 2014.
