Skinner Law Firm congratulates Attorney Laura Davis for successfully completing the American Trial Lawyers Academy’s Ultimate Trial Advocacy:  Art of Persuasion program. This prestigious advanced training for experienced trial lawyers is administered by the the American Association for Justice and The National College of Advocacy at Harvard Law School.

Through this intense week long program, Laura further improved her advocacy skills in many important areas:  forming relationships with the jury; using demonstrative evidence effectively; and countering negative juror perceptions and behavior. The sessions provided:  techniques on capturing, holding, and directing the jury’s attention; workshops on storytelling and theme creation; and trial psychology. She was able to practice and master many new skills in the small workshops.

Effective trial advocacy not only requires a high degree of intelligence but also excellent communication skills. Making and keeping a connection with every jury member is no easy task, especially when you have multiple generations serving on a jury. This prestigious training will further improve Laura’s advocacy for the victims of wrongdoing. Skinner Law Firm is proud to celebrate her for being accepted to and completing this program.
