Watch more How to Understand Legal Issues videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/424410-How-to-Give-Testimony-on-a-Witness-Stand Witnesses are often nervous about testifying on the witness stand and can look foolish, dishonest, or confused. Do yourself a favor and give your testimony by making yourself aware of the possible pitfalls. Step 1: Make a good impression Dress conservatively, with a minimum of jewelry and accessories. Tone down your hairstyle and makeup when you give testimony. Despite our resistance to the idea, appearances sway opinions. Tip Witnesses are often reluctant to take time to think because of the assumption that jurors will suspect they are hedging or lying. Step 2: Answer truthfully, listen closely Tell the truth, but only answer the questions that are asked. Don't elaborate unless you're asked to do so. Listen closely and be sure you understand the question; don't rush to answer. Request a rephrasing of the question if you're confused. Step 3: Avoid looking at your attorney Maintain eye contact with the attorney addressing you and don't appeal to or look at your own attorney or anyone else in the courtroom, which can give the impression that you doubt your account of the facts. Step 4: Stick to the facts Stick to the facts as you know them, rather than offering a guess, which can reflect on your story and eventually destroy your credibility. Step 5: Use clear body language Maintain an even emotional keel. Sit up, and be attentive, direct, and strong. Be relaxed enough to avoid showing aggravation. Did You Know? In 2010, a Detroit woman was removed from a jury and fined for posting a comment on Facebook declaring a defendant guilty.

$500,000  Bribery Case: I never received any money or letter from Farouk Lawan –Hon. Jagaba, witness
 
03:00
After series of transfers from one court to another, Mr. Farouk Lawan, A former member of the House of Representatives, has finally resumed trial for his alleged $500,000 bribery case at an FCT High court in Lugbe. A member of the REPS Hon. Adams Jagaba who is the 4th prosecution witness, during cross-examination by Prosecution counsel Mr. Mike Ozekhome denied receiving a $500,000sum and letter and from the defendant. Hon Jagaba told the court that no one could have collected the letter and money on his behalf because he lives alone in his house without a wife, house help or security. When Mr. Ozekhome (SAN) asked the witness why he lived alone, counsel to the defendant Adegboyega Awomolo objected saying that “the question has the tendency to insult the character of the witness”. Jagaba said he first read in the Leadership Newspaper that he was accused of collecting a letter and $500,000sum from the former Reps member. When asked if he reported the issue to the police immediately he read about it, Jagaba said he didn’t. He said he was aware that the police were going to invite him for questioning, so he waited for their invitation. Mr. Ozekhome called out two phone numbers; 08055870828 and 08024343111 which the witness confirmed to be his. Ozekhome said it has been confirmed that there was communication through those numbers between Lawan and Jagaba on April 23, 2012. Ozekhome requested of that matter be adjourned to a later date for further cross-examination. Justice Angela Otaluka adjourned the trial to the 11th and 12th day of April 2018 Lawan is facing an amended four-count charge of corruption for allegedly collecting $500,000 out of the $3m bribe he allegedly requested from the Chairman of Zenon Petroleum and Gas Ltd., Mr. Femi Otedola.

When One Party in a Custody Battle LIES in Court
 
07:16
http://commandthecourtroom.com In a custody battle it doesn't really matter if what is being said about you is true or not; what matters is whether the court believes it's true.* ☎️Do you need to contact me? You may call my office at 602-230-2333 or make and appointment by visiting: https://hernandezfirm.com/contact/ Please read the Disclaimer below: *This video recording is for educational purposes only and should not be considered as the rendering of legal advice. The viewing of this recording does not create an attorney-client relationship. An attorney-client relationship is only formed when you have signed an engagement agreement. We cannot guarantee results. Past results do not guarantee future results. Consult with a licensed attorney for information regarding the specifics of your case. In these type of cases it really boils down to what person is saying vs. what the other person is saying during the custody hearing and who the judge or jury is going to believe. In every family law case that goes to trial credibility of that witness is the issue. Credibility means how reliable is each witness & there are a lot of things that the judge can look at when deciding whether or not to believe a witness. 1. The person's manner when testifying meaning are they acting nervous, are they pausing a lot before answering certain questions? Do they start crying or are they sweating...These things can be considered when deciding on the believability of the witness. 2. Non-verbal communication, whether or not they get hostile when the other attorney or party is cross examining them, there ability to recall events or details or dates or how specific their testimony is when it relates to important events. In any family law case, it is also very important to practice your testimony and your witnesses testimony before you set foot in the court room. I always sit my client's down and we go through a role-laying exercise, sometimes 2, 3 or even 4 times before we go into the courtroom, especially if my client is having some anxiety about testifying and most of them are because it's a stressful and not a natural situation when you go into the court and testify something as personal as your kids, your money, your property, debts, lifestyle, your current relationships so it really does help to practice. Also, get your witnesses prepared by having them practice their answers that you will be asking them in court. Let them know what you will be looking for in their answers. Also, prepare them to be cross-examined as by the other divorce attorney. This is a big mistake that people make when preparing. They fail to get themselves their witnesses prepared for cross-examination by the other attorney. Always be straightforward and forthcoming with the court. In some states or jurisdictions the judge can actually ask questions to you or your witnesses and also the jury can write questions they want answered. If the other party proves that you haven't given information it can come back and bite you. Here is an example of that happening in an actual divorce case. I got a court decision from a trial for a client and one of the issues were the income of the parents and in Arizona there are some situations where employment bonuses can be counted as income and my client and I wanted to count the husband's employment bonuses as income and they were significant bonuses around $28,000 one year and $26,000 the next. After we had presented the evidence and asked the husband over the last 5 years how many bonuses did he receive and the amount and his answer to the judge was that he had received bonuses in 2 of the 5 years. What the husband did not tell the judge however is that he had been working for his current company which is Microsoft for only 3 years so 2 out of the 3 years he had been working for Microsoft he received bonuses. So in the judges decision she referred to that failure to reveal information and she said and i quote. "Father worked for Microsoft, he received bonuses 2 of the last 3 years he has worked there. In 2015 he received $28,000 and in 2014 he received $26,000 for an average of $27,000. When asked by the court how often he received bonuses father failed to reveal to the court that he had only worked there 3 years leaving the impression that he did not receive bonuses frequently. Persuant to Arizona law bonuses may be included in gross income, the court finds it reasonable to include the average of father's last 2 years bonuses in the salary.

UTS Law Students' Society: Witness Examination Tutorial
 
08:58
UTS Law Students' Society presents the Witness Examination tutorial video. In Witness Examination, advocates for both the prosecution and the accused obtain relevant and admissible evidence from the witness that will be called in support of their case. This is known as examination-in-chief. Following examination-in-chief opposing legal representatives cross-examine that witness in attempt to undermine the veracity and plausibility of the account given by the witness in examination in chief. There will finally be an opportunity for the party calling the witness to re-examine the witness over matters that have arisen in the course of cross examination. A witness examination is just a 'snapshot' of the questioning part of a trial. This video demonstrates some techniques students can utilise in the competition. Interviews from members of the legal profession and past student competitors allow for an insight in order to succeed in the competition and how you can improve your cross examination technique.
Mayella's Guilt - To Kill a Mockingbird (5/10) Movie CLIP (1962) HD

To Kill a Mockingbird movie clips: http://j.mp/15vV0dT BUY THE MOVIE: http://amzn.to/tGAzK7 Don't miss the HOTTEST NEW TRAILERS: http://bit.ly/1u2y6pr CLIP DESCRIPTION: Atticus (Gregory Peck) addresses the court and describes Mayella's guilt for tempting a black man, and the dire consequences her guilt has caused. FILM DESCRIPTION: Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning autobiographical novel was translated to film in 1962 by Horton Foote and the producer/director team of Robert Mulligan and Alan J. Pakula. Set a small Alabama town in the 1930s, the story focuses on scrupulously honest, highly respected lawyer Atticus Finch, magnificently embodied by Gregory Peck. Finch puts his career on the line when he agrees to represent Tom Robinson (Brock Peters), a black man accused of rape. The trial and the events surrounding it are seen through the eyes of Finch's six-year-old daughter Scout (Mary Badham). While Robinson's trial gives the film its momentum, there are plenty of anecdotal occurrences before and after the court date: Scout's ever-strengthening bond with older brother Jem (Philip Alford), her friendship with precocious young Dill Harris (a character based on Lee's childhood chum Truman Capote and played by John Megna), her father's no-nonsense reactions to such life-and-death crises as a rampaging mad dog, and especially Scout's reactions to, and relationship with, Boo Radley (Robert Duvall in his movie debut), the reclusive "village idiot" who turns out to be her salvation when she is attacked by a venomous bigot. To Kill a Mockingbird won Academy Awards for Best Actor (Peck), Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Art Direction.

How to EXPOSE the narcissist in Court and/or to Psychologist!
 
19:27
There is a lot of information available on the internet regarding narcissistic abuse, narcissistic abuse victim syndrome, healing Cptsd due to emotional abuse and overcoming the abuse inflicted by narcissistic parents; however, having someone guide and mentor you on your healing journey can be so helpful. If you feel you can benefit from inviting someone on your healing journey, please check out these links for face to face coaching and/or phone coaching: https://payhip.com/b/whkV https://payhip.com/b/uGNB For those interested in an interactive self-help journal, here is the link for the PDF entitled I Miss Me and I Want Me Back https://payhip.com/b/HD4v Michele is someone that has truly been there; after surviving 31 years of narcissistic abuse by family members and significant others, she now dedicates her time and energy toward helping others as a Trauma Recovery Coach and soon to be a Certified Kinesiology Practitioner to help others that are still on their road to recovery. For those that are going to court against a narcissist, the PDF entitled When The Devils The Defendant has been a helpful tool for thousands- https://payhip.com/b/Kl21 Dating Harley Quinn – Female Histrionic Narcissist is NOW AVAILABLE – https://payhip.com/b/a31b A male target of narcissistic abuse asked me if I would be interested in ghost writing his memoir and after hearing his story I was hooked. It’s one thing to hear about what narcissistic abuse is, to learn about triangulation, blame shifting, projection, narcissistic supply, gaslighting and so many other terms and manipulation tactics we come to learn about on our journey to heal from narcissistic abuse. But it’s another story to delve into the life of someone trapped in a trauma bond by a female histrionic narcissist. This memoir, written in novel form, takes you on the roller coaster ride of highs and lows that are typical in emotionally abusive relationships. Here is a brief description of the book, a link is found below. This memoir opens the door to what my life was like dating a female histrionic narcissist. The beginning of the relationship was surreal - if ever I had fantasized about what the perfect girl would be - it paled in comparison to what Angel was truly like and how she enhanced my life. If I were to compare her to anyone I had ever dated - it would not be fair; it would be like comparing a painting done with finger paints hanging on a refrigerator door, held up with a magnet, to Michelangelo's art scenes from Genesis painted on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome. The feeling Angel gave was a perfect purity of manifested perfection. I quite literally could not imagen a girl more totally perfect, my imagination was stretched just to take in the reality of her. She took me in every way she possibly could to the heights beyond the tops of Mt. Everest in sensual and hedonistic pleasure. She brought me to the edge of the stratosphere where the air is so thin you have to wear a space suit - but the view - the view is all humanity stretched out before you and you can see the curvature of the earth and the blackness of space. And then she dropped me. While reading this story there are no definitions spelled out as to narcissistic abuse, nor what histrionics are like, rather a picture is painted before your eyes. You will see the idealization phase, notice the cycle of highs and lows that are signature to emotionally abusive relationships, you will watch in horror as the trauma bonds can cause a person to make the worst, self-destructive decisions possible. I'm inviting you to bear witness to my journey. What looked so innocent and enticing quickly turned into a covert poison that cost me a million-dollar business, my health, provoked a suicide attempt and left me homeless and suffering brain damage. This is my story. It's not meant to entice sympathy, rather it's a wake- up call for anyone that is in a relationship with someone narcissistic, sociopathic, histrionic or a cocktail of mixed cluster b disorders. https://payhip.com/b/a31b

Party may not impeach his own witness. — Except with respect to witnesses referred to in paragraphs (d) and (e) of Section 10, the party producing a witness is not allowed to impeach his credibility. A witness may be considered as unwilling or hostile only if so declared by the court upon adequate showing of his adverse interest, unjustified reluctance to testify, or his having misled the party into calling him to the witness stand. The unwilling or hostile witness so declared, or the witness who is an adverse party, may be impeached by the party presenting him in all respects as if he had been called by the adverse party, except by evidence of his bad character. He may also be impeached and cross-examined by the adverse party, but such cross-examination must only be on the subject matter of his examination-in- chief. ********************* Support the Lex in Motion Community through the official merch store.

FRE 803(2): Excited Utterance A statement relating to a startling event or condition, made while the declarant was under the stress of excitement that it caused. FRE 803(3): Then-Existing Mental, Emotional, or Physical Condition A statement of the declarant’s then-existing state of mind (such as motive, intent, or plan) or emotional, sensory, or physical condition (such as mental feeling, pain, or bodily health), but not including a statement of memory or belief to prove the fact remembered or believed unless it relates to the validity or terms of the declarant’s will. FRE 803(4): Statement Made for Medical Diagnosis or Treatment A statement that is: (1) made for — and is reasonably pertinent to — medical diagnosis or treatment; and (2) describes medical history; past or present symptoms or sensations; their inception; or their general cause. FRE 803(5): Recorded Recollection A record that: (1) is on a matter the witness once knew about but now cannot recall well enough to testify fully and accurately; (2) was made or adopted by the witness when the matter was fresh in the witness’s memory; and (3) accurately reflects the witness’s knowledge. FRE 803(6): Business Records A record of an act, event, condition, opinion, or diagnosis if: (1) the record was made at or near the time by — or from information transmitted by — someone with knowledge; (2) the record was kept in the course of a regularly conducted activity of a business, organization, occupation, or calling, whether or not for profit; and (3) making the record was a regular practice of that activity. HEARSAY EXCEPTIONS: DECLARANT UNAVAILABILITY IS REQUIRED (FRE 804) (https://www.law.cornell.edu/rules/fre/rule_804) A declarant is considered to be unavailable as a witness if the declarant: (1) is exempted from testifying about the subject matter of the declarant’s statement because the court rules that a privilege applies; (2) refuses to testify about the subject matter despite a court order to do so; (3) testifies to not remembering the subject matter; (4) cannot be present or testify at the trial or hearing because of death or a then-existing infirmity, physical illness, or mental illness; or (5) is absent from the trial or hearing and the statement’s proponent has not been able, by process or other reasonable means, to procure the declarant's attendance or testimony. The following are not excluded by the rule against hearsay (FRE 801) if the declarant is unavailable as a witness: FRE 804(b)(1): Former Testimony Testimony that: (1) was given as a witness at a trial, hearing, or lawful deposition, whether given during the current proceeding or a different one; and (2) is now offered against a party who had — or, in a civil case, whose predecessor in interest had — an opportunity and similar motive to develop it by direct, cross-, or redirect examination. FRE 804(b)(2): Dying Declaration In a prosecution for homicide or in a civil case, a statement that the declarant, while believing the declarant’s death to be imminent, made about its cause or circumstances. FRE 804(b)(3): Statement Against Interest A statement that: (1) a reasonable person would not have made unless he believed it to be true; (2) was so contrary to the declarant’s proprietary or pecuniary interest or had so great a tendency to invalidate the declarant’s claim against someone else or to expose the declarant to civil or criminal liability; and (3) is supported by corroborating circumstances that clearly indicate its trustworthiness, if it is offered in a criminal case as one that tends to expose the declarant to criminal liability. FRE 804(b)(6): Forfeiture by Wrongdoing A statement offered against a party that wrongfully caused — or acquiesced in wrongfully causing — the declarant’s unavailability as a witness, and did so intending that result.
