Cordell & Cordell Executive/Managing Partner, CEO Scott Trout and Litigation Partner Will Halaz discuss what a typical trial looks like in family law.

Trial is one of the aspects of divorce that make many guys nervous because they do not know what to expect. Mr. Trout and Mr. Halaz unpack some of the mystery of family law trials and review the various components. They explain the importance of opening statements and why they are often underutilized by attorneys, the role of objections, the flow of evidence as well as the differences between direct examination and cross-examination, what happens in pretrial conferences, how closing statements can be used to tie a case together, and more.
