About the Book

Learn how to look good on cross, even when the witness is not cooperating. Terence MacCarthy is synonymous with effective cross-examination. For 40 years he has been the head of the Federal Defender's Office in Chicago, and is among the top CLE instructors in the nation owing to his lectures on cross-examination technique. And now, Terence MacCarthy has literally written the book on cross-examination--to be published by the American Bar Association.

The primary reason lawyers are more adept in opening and closing statement is that they are able to use the most persuasive technique known--they are allowed to tell a story. This new book shows you how to tell a story in cross- examination, too, even when you are faced with a hostile witness. Learn how to manage and effectively minimize the witness's involvement, without appearing controlling, extracting and insulting. Discover how to use effective short statements and make the witness affirm everything you say.

Filled with illustrative cross-examinations from actual cases, this book is your key to employing these proven techniques in your own practice. Using the three themes that run through out the book--looking good, telling a story, and using short statements--you can take control of your cross-examinations and achieve the results you desire. To improve and to change your thoughts on cross-examination, order your copy of MacCarthy on Cross-Examination today!
