We have worked with countless US citizen witnesses, as well as witnesses from 19 foreign countries. Some witnesses worry that preparation with a consultant means that they are going to be told to say things that they don’t believe, or testify to something other than the truth. This has never been more true than when preparing witnesses from other cultures. Keene Trial Consulting subscribes to the Code of Ethics of the American Society of Trial Consultants, and we do not participate in such efforts. Witness preparation is an educational process, teaching how to communicate effectively, how to testify clearly and accurately, how to maintain their composure in a stressful setting, and how to credibly integrate the over-arching case themes into their testimony.
