Mark Kosieradzki - The Role of Curiosity, Analysis, and Courage in Trial Practice

Most lawyers think trial is theater. But theater is just the frosting on the cake. 

In this episode of Trial Lawyers University, Dan Ambrose is joined by nationally recognized trial lawyer Mark Kosieradzki, founding partner of Minnesota-based Kosieradzki Smith Law Firm LLC. Mark is an expert on 30(b)(6) depositions and teaches his techniques at seminars across the country. He is also the author of several books on trial advocacy, deposition techniques, and the law. His latest book, Litigation Obstruction: Breaking Through will be available in 2024. Mark concentrates his practice on serious injury and wrongful death cases with a focus on the representation of victims in nursing home abuse and neglect cases.  

Tune in to hear Dan and Mark talk about Mark’s journey to becoming a lawyer and what he has learned in over 44 years of practice, including what Mark considers to be the top three qualities of a great trial lawyer. Mark also shares information about Stonewall Solutions, the obstruction management tool he developed for lawyers. Be sure to listen all the way to the end of the episode as Dan also shares the three things you need to get big verdicts.
