Brian Johnson Speaks at Defense Research Institute in May

Johnson Trent's Partner, Brian Johnson, was a featured speaker at the Defense Research Institute's (DRI) Drug and Medical Device Seminar in May, 2011, in Chicago, Illinois. His topic was "The Use of Closing Arguments to Defuse Sympathy in Drug and medical Devices Cases: A Demonstration."

Brian has tried numerous pharmaceutical medical device cases and analyzed what impact juror sympathy has on deliberations and potential strategies to get jurors to set their sympathies aside and to focus on the issues that they will be charged with deciding. He also performed a portion of a closing argument that focused on juror sympathy and redirected jurors to important facts and issues in the case.
