On March 28, 2014, the Sonoma County Bar Association sponsored a full-day Civil Trial Practice seminar covering all of the basics for new and/or inexperienced attorneys. With cooperation from the Sonoma, Marin and Mendocino County Superior Court judges participating, the event covered everything from local rules, motions in limine, jury selection, opening statements, direct and cross examination, and closing argument, and showcased some of Sonoma County's most well-respected trial attorneys. Our own Bonnie Freeman participated with John ("Jack") DeMeo and Hon. Gary Nadler on the subject of cross examination, joining another panel of attorneys and judges for direct examination.
Participants in the workshop raved about the quality and quantity of materials presented. It was truly a remarkable event!
