Nuclear Verdicts™:

Defending Justice For All

By Robert F. Tyson, Jr.

This is the first book ever written for the defense on how to avoid runaway jury verdicts. I wrote this book because I care about fairness. I believe everyone has the right to a fair trial, not just plaintiff lawyers and their clients. Defendants are entitled to have a jury decide their case without being stirred with passion and bias by creative plaintiff lawyers.

This is the defense “playbook” for jus­tice. You will learn trial techniques to even the playing field for defendants seeking a fair trial. Every aspect of a civil jury trial will be covered, from voir dire to open­ing statements to witnesses and finally closing arguments. There is a formula for defeating plaintiff attorneys’ deceptive tactics and psychological gamesmanship, and you will learn it.

With full of 30 years of trial victories and personal experiences, this is a “how to” book. How to defend at trial. How to beat plaintiff attorneys at their own game. How to win.

It is time to bring an end to the epidem­ic of nuclear verdicts across our country. It is time for you to take back justice for all!
