Litigation Consultant and Expert Witness
In Roman legend, Janus was depicted as having two faces because he simultaneously looked to the future and to the past. It has been said that successful trial preparation requires a Janus-like approach from the very inception of the case. An expert logistical blueprint, adjusted with the evolution of the case through trial, guides the judge by way of a coherently well-presented roadmap of governing law that advocates the unique facts of your case. Mr. Scheinberg is available to prepare all briefs and memoranda of law throughout the trial stages of the litigation. Like Janus, the blueprint and the memoranda simultaneously contemplate the potential for future appellate review to either reverse judicial error or preserve your favorable outcome.
A strong strategy demands refined knowledge of the intersection between the categories of matrimonial law and the intricate rules of evidence because knowing how to present your case at trial is every bit as important as knowing what to present. Significant rights can be forfeited if the evidence, no matter how irrefutable, is not admitted due to flawed introduction, and is not heard by the trial judge and consequently by the reviewing appellate court.
