Virginia Medical Malpractice Personal Injury Attorney Jim Lewis Invited to Lecture on Mediation Techniques

Virginia Beach VA personal injury attorney Jim Lewis spoke to members of the Norfolk and Portsmouth Bar Association on mediation techniques he uses in his own injury law practice. Taking "mediation as an alternative to trial" as his cetral theme, Lewis spoke on October 12, 2011, and was joined by retired circuit court judges from Suffolk and Virginia Beach, as well as other practicing personal injury attorneys.

Lewis emphasized using mediation to fairly settle malpractice cases while sharing tips on negotiating effectively in mediation drawn from his own experiences. He described strategies for interviewing witnesses, reparing PowerPoint slideshows and presenting anatomical drawings of the injured body parts as evidence.
