"Mr. Leonard Bucklin and Staff:

Although I have been in solo practice for six years, I had never been able to go to trial. When this case came up and I realized that there couldn't be a settlement, I began to look for information on trial presentation. When I narrowed my search to trial notebooks, I began to research for the best and most effective. That was when I found you and your firm.

Speaking as a 'rookie' the information you sent made me feel very comfortable in preparing for trial. Everything seemed to be there. It answered my questions and gave an organized direction in preparing for my first trial as an attorney.

Unfortunately, when I advised that I was ready for trial, opposing counsel requested a three month continuance!"

        - Robert Brode, California attorney.

Here is what the the trial lawyer author says:

"Most attorneys have no real system to prepare for depositions and trial.  Typically, I see opposing counsel fumbling through their files, stalling, wasting everyone's time and embarrassing themselves because they have no real system to keep them organized.

But that doesn't have to be you.

Take a look at a notebook system that  seasoned litigation attorneys have been using for years.  In fact, this LitigationReady trial, deposition, and litigation notebook system is so powerful, even experienced attorneys will wonder how you beat them.

This proven system is guaranteed to organize your case in less time, with more efficiency.  And, you'll be so prepared for your deposition or trial, you can focus on being your best in the court room."

The power of organization does manifest itself to the opposing counsel. 
When you walk in feeling prepared, the other side will notice.  An old mentor of mine once said, "The trial game is 75% perception."  It's still true today.

When you get to a deposition or to the courthouse for trial, everything will be in order. You will maintain an appearance of purpose and drive. The object of this notebook system is --- deposition and courtroom success through ability to organize.

Written by a Fellow of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers.

I was one of the first attorneys to use a single trial notebook system for all litigation processes, office organization, depositions, settlement negotiations,  and trials.  When I first did it, many lawyers were still using yellow legal pads and wondering if video depositions could be used in the courtroom!  Since then, I have has constantly refined this trial notebook system.  You now can get this simple method, with working forms that allow lawyers and their secretaries and legal assistants to work seamlessly together.

A trial notebook forces the attorney to get organized and think about all aspects of the case. Getting organized will result in a better understanding of the lawsuit. Everything is in place for depositions.  Power is ready for settlement. The final payoff comes in helping you try your case and effectively examine witnesses, introduce exhibits, and represent your client before both the jury and the judge.

Most cases end in a settlement.  Our LitigationReady  trial notebook system is also a great help in organization for settlement negotiations and alternative dispute resolution.  Keep the respect of the adverse attorney.  Organization of your litigation, keeping the other side responding to you (instead of letting them have the initiative), and showing consistent and efficient organization at depositions is a  key in keeping the respect of the adverse attorney. That leads to a win at settlement negotiations and alternative dispute resolutions.
