At the Law Offices of Matthew C. Bishop, Inc., we believe preparation, research and practice are among the primary elements of a fully inspected case. That is why we employ a number of strategies in the courtroom before a case even goes to trial. You might ask how that is possible. The answer is the performance mock trials. We believe these simulation sessions are an essential component of criminal defense practice.
If you are familiar with the way astronomers use computer software to simulate the behavior of distant stars, or how architects build scale models to communicate their work, then you already have an idea of how important mock trials are to lawyers. We could even offer the more direct analogy of creating a first draft of our legal briefs. Simply put, the mock trial is a rough copy of the court proceedings that is only available to members of the defense.
