Bob Simon–Keep It Simple (and Real) for the Jury

Tell the jury the case is simple. Prove it to them. And let the defense waste the jury’s time with frivolous things and conspiracy theories. 

In this episode of Trial Lawyers University, Dan Ambrose is joined by trial lawyer and tech entrepreneur Robert ("Bob") Simon of  The Simon Law Group, a personal injury practice with offices in California, Arizona, and Texas.

Tune in as Bob shares strategies for how to keep your case simple from opening to closing, how to tap into your plaintiff’s emotions and struggles to make it real for the jury, and how to nail your cross of the defense’s expert. 

Bob also shares how he co-founded Justice HQ (an exclusive membership organization for consumer advocate attorneys) and Attorney Share (a recently launched case marketplace allowing the best lawyers to work on the best cases).
