WWWD – What Would W. Do?

Attorney Ronald V. Miller has an interesting post about how he used one of W’s catch phrases to catch a jury’s attention… and catch a decent verdict.

I was trying an auto accident case recently where the Plaintiff’s lost wages were at issue. The Plaintiff did not have an “off slip” from a doctor. Instead, she took off work when she felt like her pain dictated taking a day off. On cross-examination, my client was grilled – over objection – about whether the medical records sitting at the trial table contained an “off slip” from a doctor. The client admitted - somewhat sheepishly - that no note was obtained.
