They teach you not only what to prepare before the hearing, but also how to be nimble and responsive once you arrive. Point Well Made is a hands-on, practical guide that helps you devise your theme, persuasively relay your facts, simplify the law, prepare the right notes for the hearing, gain insight into your particular judge so you can customize your argument, deliver the motion with successful voice and body language techniques, and answer challenging questions with confidence. It helps you know what to say and how to say it, features sample language to address the varied situations you may encounter in a hearing, advises you on dealing with a multi-judge panel, and demonstrates techniques through examples and exercises.
