deaf-attorney-tricks-of-trade

A deaf attorney with a federal government agency
wins most of his cases.

He requires an interpreter in the court room, as
all deaf attorneys do, but refers to the CART
as his interpreter!

He does his homework in advance, rehearsing the
anticipated questions from opposing attorneys.
As a result, most of his responses were what
came from his “expected” cross examination
questions. He is never caught blindsided by
these unexpected questions.

CART will never keep apace with the speed of the
spoken words – hence the importance of advising
the judges that CART will always be 2-3 seconds
slow. Sympathetic judges will tell opposing
attorneys to “slow down.”

Very important to set up the laptop and the
CART equipment in the most optimal lighting
conditions possible. Very often on a sunny
day, it is difficult to read the screen
when sun shines on it.
