How to Get The Most of Direct Examination of Your Client


By S.J. Walker

J.D. Candidate

Direct examination is a talent that draws on knowledge,
practice, and skill. The rules governing direct examination assist the judge or
jury in discovering the facts and basis behind the case, and should be used to
go beyond simply reiterating the evidence that is already admitted. To ensure
that an attorney makes the most out of their time with their witness, there are
important tactics that can be used such as the importance of certain moments
when leading a witness may be appropriate and permissible; how to use
documents; and how not to waste your time redirecting unless it truly adds
something to the prior testi...




           Company car accident reports can be essential to changing the way a case turns out. An accident report has the power to change what may have been heading straight to
litigation, to a settlement agreement in just a matter of days. Why? Well the
answer is simple, the information provided in accident reports is a potential
gold mind: i.e. party admissions from the defendant. However, getting the
accident report is not so simple.


            It is clear
as to why a company would want to keep their accident report secret, and if
they are keeping it a secret, usually there is something YOU should know in the
report. So, in order to elevate yourself from simply b...

Orange County Superior Court Sets Aside a 16 year Judgment


By Omid Rejali

Recently I had the pleasure of representing a client who had been dropped by his former attorney. The issue evolved around a judgment that was obtained against him back in 2002. The main reason that no one wanted to take on this clients case was because he was a felon.

The main issue evolved around a proof of service that alleged that my client had been "personally" served. All proof of servic...

Equal and Meaningful: A look at Jameson v. Desta




By: S.J. Walker


It has long been established that one of the main goals of
the legal system is to provide equal access to the judicial process. It is
clear that “equal access” is continuing to be defined and challenged on a
constant basis as we thrive to ensure “equal access” is also “meaningful access.”


In the recent California Supreme Court decision in Jameson v. Desta, the Court found that
San Diego County’s policy on court reporters was invalid because it did not
provide an exception for indigent people. In Jameson v. Desta, the Court of Appeals affirmed the decision of the
trial court for a nonsuit in favor of Defendant. Plaintiff, an indigent, who
