Web Legal/Medical Sites

Below are sites I regularly use in my law practice.

Plaintiff Trial Lawyer Tips. This is the blog of Paul Luvera. Paul is one of the best plaintiff lawyers in the United States. He has tried hundreds of cases to verdict with many being multimillion dollar results. His site is a great resource for all trial lawyers. I often consult his site.

James Publishing Company. This is a good internet legal resource. Go to left column at 103 Free Articles with Forms. There you will find down loads including Deposing Defendant Driver, Deposing Expert Witness, Cross Exam of Defense Orthopedic Expert, Voir Dire Questions, and more. I use this site for deposition and cross examination.

Law Office of Howard Nations (Publications). Howard Nations is one of the best trial lawyers in Texas. His office site includes his “Publications.” Three must reads are “Cross Examination,” “Overcoming Jury Bias,” and “Powerful Persuasion.” I read all three once a year and refer to “Overcoming Jury Bias” several times a year.

The Jury Expert. This website presents as a legal magazine covering issues concerning jury trials. There are many articles worth reading that have added to my trial lawyer ability.

Harry Plotkin (Jury Tip of the Month). Jury consultant Harry Plotkin has a jury tip of the month which I always read. Subscribe to it and you receive a jury tip once a month.

Pub Med. This is a good starting point for abstracts of medical peer review studies. Use a common language search to get abstracts. I often use the abstracts for depositions of defense experts as well as for cross examination.

Wheeless’ Text Book of Orthopedics. This is a fine orthopedic website. Click the skeleton at the area of the body you are researching and the site displays orthopedic information about that part of the body.

Human Anatomy. Decent online Human Anatomy site.

Strunk and White, The Elements of Style. OK so this has nothing to do with either a legal or medical resource, but it has everything to do with what we need to do. That is speak and write in a powerful and articulate way. Professors Strunk and White wrote the book and here it is online. I read it once a year.

Gonzaga Law Review. I am biased since I went to  Gonzaga Law School and was EIC of volume 15. Current  EIC  Mark Melter and his staff as well as prior editorial boards publish a practical and cutting edge law review that is now online.
