Basch & Keegan's personal injury lawyer John Degasperis recently attended the Trial Lawyers Summit in Miami, Florida. This is an event for attorneys that is hosted by the National Trial Lawyers professional organization.
We are happy to announce that John was recognized by the NTL as a Top 40 (attorney) Under 40 (years of age)! He now joins esteemed peers nationwide in this Top 40 Under 40 professional organization. Membership is limited to a select few in each state, based on a stringent variety of criteria including leadership, reputation, and stature.
An Intensive Learning Experience
The summit was a four-day learning experience moderated and taught by some of the nation’s top trial lawyers, including Howard Nations and Mark O’Mara. There were conference sessions on modern techniques used during jury selection, opening statements, direct examination, cross-examination, and closing remarks. In addition, some of the other extremely interesting topics were facial coding, trial themes, and cultural biases.
Of course – since Florida is a major change of scenery from New York Hudson Valley winters – there was also some rest and relaxation involved!
