Pozner & Dodd - The Masters of Cross-Examination

Larry Pozner and Roger Dodd are the nationally known and best-selling authors of Cross-Examination: Science and Techniques. With a combined 58 years of trial experience between them, Roger and Larry are recognized experts in cross examination; their book is endorsed by some of today’s premier trial attorneys and has become the “bible of cross” for lawyers across the country. Both attorneys continue to practice law in addition to giving live and webcast seminars on trial techniques across the country and outside the US.

“Preparation, mastery of technique, and execution of a solid game plan underlie more courtroom victories than all the flash and glitz and strokes of brilliance combined.”

Published by LexisNexis, the Cross Examination product line includes the seminal print title, a DVD or CD (audio file) of Larry and Roger lecturing on advanced cross examination techniques, and a set of Preparation for Deposition DVDs that help attorneys prepare their clients for deposition.

    Pozner and Dodd, The Masters of Cross-Examination DVD, Third Edition
    Undermining the opponent's case and discrediting the opponent's witnesses have historically been viewed as primary goals of cross-examination. However, counsel can also use cross-examination constructively to control the opponent's witnesses so that the witnesses will advance the attorney's own theory of the case. This use of cross-examination can be devastatingly effective, yet many attorneys fail to deploy it. With authoritative guidance from Larry Pozner and Roger Dodd, The Masters of Cross-Examination DVD set gives attorneys the practical tools to unleash the power of constructive cross-examination for better trial outcomes. Four DVDs, containing nine lectures, provide detailed guidance on the authors' signature "Chapter Method" of preparing for cross-examination, as well as proven techniques for controlling witnesses.

    In Cross-Examination: Science and Techniques, Second Edition, Larry Pozner and Roger Dodd continue their outstanding tradition of helping attorneys conduct commanding cross-examinations. The second edition offers deeper analysis of cross-examination methods, with more integration and interrelationship of techniques and principles. In analyzing thousands of new trial experiences, they present efficient techniques to confront the challenges of evolving admissibility standards and electronic discovery, and ultimately, help attorneys develop cross-examination skills that are critical to trial success. Inside you'll find valuable advice on how to:

    •  Use opponents' objections as the springboard for deeper and broader cross-examinations.
    •  Sequence cross-examination to teach the theory of the case in the best way, and to literally expand the rules of admissibility
    •  Use "loops" (the practice of incorporating and repeating key phrases and terms in successive questions to the witness) to rename witnesses and exhibits.
    •  Use "double loops" to discredit opposing expert witnesses.
    •  Use voir dire to create great jurors
    •  Use a fact-driven investigation to develop a winning theory
    •  Use a witness's own words to follow your theme and theory
    •  Control the runaway witness
    •  Communicate winning theories in opening, cross, and closing
    •  Use loops to box in the witness
    •  Use tactical sequencing to create the most powerful cross
    •  Convert a witness's silence into admission of fact
    •  Induce the witness to voice your pre-selected words
    •  Prepare for devastating impeachment
    •  Close off any escape routes for the witness
    •  Punish the evasive or "I don't know" witness
    •  Control the crying witness
    •  Use timing, posture, inflection, diction, wording, eye contact, and other effects to emphasize a witness's concession

    Effective cross-examination is a science with established guidelines, identifiable techniques, and definable methods. Attorneys can learn how to control the outcome with careful preparation, calculated strategy, effective skills, and a disciplined demeanor. Pozner and Dodd's treatise remains the definitive guide to preparing killer cross-examinations, only from LexisNexis.

    With 40 years' experience in courtrooms and before juries, Larry Pozner is a founding partner of the firm Pozner and Reilly, Denver Colorado. Larry focuses his practice on complex civil and criminal litigation—as well as the lecture circuit. He is litigation counsel for the Denver Broncos Football Club.

In the criminal arena, Larry began his career as a public defender—and continues his high profile criminal defense work as a private practitioner.

    In 1998, he was elected president of the 10,000 member National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. Larry supplements his civil and criminal practice with publishing, television and radio legal commentary, and lecturing on trial practice. He is well-known among fellow trial attorneys as the co-author of Cross-Examination: Science and Techniques—America's best-selling publication on the subject of cross-examination. He has presented his full-day CLE program on this subject to state bar associations, plaintiff and defense organizations and governmental agencies more than 250 times. When a trial attracts national attention, the national news media often seek Larry's perspective. He was a NBC News legal analyst for the Jon Benet Ramsey case and the Oklahoma City bombing trials. He has provided legal analysis for such shows as the NBC Nightly News, The Today Show, Keith Olbermann, Fox News, CNN, NPR and Court TV. In recognition of his skills and accomplishments at trial, Larry is regularly listed in Colorado Super Lawyers® (Top 10, Top 50 and Top 100 lawyers in the state). He was named the 2015 Denver Criminal Defense: White-Collar "Lawyer of the Year" and the 2013 Denver Criminal Defense: Non-White Collar "Lawyer of the Year" by The Best Lawyers in America® and has been listed in that publication for 28 consecutive years. For many years, he served on the adjunct faculty of the University of Denver Sturm College of Law where he was voted "Best Professor." Larry's colleagues in the legal profession value his courtroom skills and experience—and flock to attend his presentations. He has traveled to 48 states (as well as Canada and Puerto Rico) to deliver more than 400 lectures on subjects relating to trial skills, and has served on the faculty of several trial practice institutes. For the last seven years, he and partner Dan Reilly have been invited to address judges attending the annual Colorado Judicial Conference. Their annual presentation deals with some unusual aspect of trial evidence ranging from courtroom demonstrative aids to electronic evidence.
