“Cross-examination will continue to fascinate us. There is something in us that loves a good fight. Yet it is direct examination that builds the structure of a case. And sometimes jurors like to come out of the shadows to believe in something – hopefully, our client, our case. Conceiving persuasive and compelling direct examinations is an act of creation that explains the wonder of why many a trial lawyer finds the art of direct examination deeply satisfying.”
