    Monthly Membership Luncheon

    Thursday, June 20, 2019 at 11:45 a.m.   

    SPEAKER: Mike McDonner

    TOPIC:  “How to Persuade a Jury Within 30 Seconds!”

    CLE CREDIT:  1 hour general credit / Half hour (.5) technology credit

    SUMMARY: Discovery in the 21st Century: how the use of technology and juror research has transformed the discovery process. We provide an overview of psychological studies that analyze the importance of first impressions when attempting to win over judges and jurors. Studies demonstrate that video is the most effective means for establishing a winning first impression in opening. In addition to teaching attendees how to tailor discovery to produce evidence that is compelling to Millennials, we analyze the use of video at depositions, realtime court reporting, working video, synchronized transcripts, and even how the location of a deposition can change a witness’ testimony.

    SPEAKER: Mike McDonner


    SPEAKER'S BIO: Michael McDonner is the President of Milestone Reporting Company and the Compass Reporting Network. He oversees a staff of over 300 court reporters, transcriptionists and legal videographers across the South. He is focused on new trends in litigation technology and was a sponsor of the Jefferson County Courtroom Upgrade Project in Louisville, KY that made the courtrooms there some of the most advanced in the country.


    Before retiring from the practice of law, Mike worked in a wide range of litigation backgrounds. He handled medical malpractice defense cases, RICO litigation and appraiser litigation during the housing crises. He successfully defended an insurer from indemnification claims during Kentucky’s “Enron” litigation at the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals and handled numerous other personal injury claims. In short, he took a lot of depositions.


    Mike has a particular interest in communication and persuasion. He was the first person to win back-to-back NFA National Collegiate Debate Championships and still holds the record for most national titles won. He also has five children who test and refocus his persuasion skills on a daily basis.
