Jon Teller – Getting Your First Eight-Figure Verdict

When somebody hits their first eight-figure case, it changes how they value things and how the defense values them too. 

In this episode of Trial Lawyers University, Dan Ambrose is joined by Jon Teller, Senior Partner and an award-winning Senior Trial Attorney at Wilshire Law Firm. Jon started out as a defense attorney and is now on the plaintiff’s side. Having learned how the defense thinks, operates, and prepares for trial, Jon now uses those skills against them. 

Tune in to hear Jon discuss his approach and philosophy on various trial tactics, from talking to the jury about money and appraising the value of life, to how long he spends on opening and closing statements. Jon also shares why he loves playing video of experts instead of calling them live, how redirect can help you win the case, and why you should make your plaintiff’s direct as quick as possible.
