Product Description

Tested tips for admitting and excluding evidence in New Hampshire trials. You will find this and more in A Practical Guide to Evidence in New Hampshire. Under the editorial direction of E. Tupper Kinder, Esq. and Kenneth E. Rubinstein, Esq., together with the Honorable Robert J. Lynn, Associate Justice of the New Hampshire Supreme Court, MCLE | NE has developed an authoritative and practical evidence manual for New Hampshire litigators. Fourteen of New Hampshire's most noted trial lawyers share their techniques, tips, strategies and best practices for dealing with evidentiary issues in the context of courtroom practice. The book's authors hail from Concord, Portsmouth, Manchester, Exeter and Nashua, and possess an impressive curriculum vitae of hundreds of cases won in New Hampshire's courts. Now, you can benefit from their collective expertise to get the very best result for your client.

This essential resource for litigators shows you how to:

- establish facts at both pretrial and trial other than through formal proof, including through use of evidentiary admissions, confessions, judicial admissions, judicial notice, stipulations, and interrogatories.

- limit or exclude evidence with the motion in limine, motion to strike, and the offer of proof, and apply evidentiary rules limiting the introduction of certain evidence on subsequent remedial measures and offers to compromise.

- probe a witness's competency or qualification to show that he or she lacks sufficient capacity to observe, remember, narrate, or understand the duty to tell the truth.

- handle witness corroboration, including habit and routine practice evidence, the use of depositions as trial evidence, and refreshment of recollection.

- prove a witness's or defendant's character with a witness's testimony as to reputation and particular character traits.

- learn the proper language to use when examining a police officer, an expert, a hostile witness, and other key players in your case.

- pick up tips on the motion in limine, motion to strike and other means of achieving evidentiary exclusions and limitations.

- handle delicate evidentiary issues, such as determining the competency of a child witness.

Featured are sample examinations based on realistic hypotheticals filled with the nuance, the persuasion, and the know-how that you can learn how to adopt in your own direct and cross-examinations.

A practice handbook in its most basic form, A Practical Guide to Evidence in New Hampshire is a must-have for Granite State litigators and trial lawyers who wish to master evidence to prevail in court.
