This panel explores best practices and tips on presenting compelling emotional distress cases for your clients and maximizing recovery for emotional distress damages, especially when economic damages may be low or non-existent. Topics include: exploring your client’s mental and emotional states from intake through the litigation, building emotional rapport with your client, obtaining necessary discovery while protecting your client’s privacy, effective use of third-party witnesses and experts, and presenting winning arguments for emotional distress damages at mediation and trial. The panelists also incorporate discussion of how to effectively present emotional distress arguments given the current realities of a global pandemic and virtual litigation.
