In this presentation, attorney Carl Bettinger will be talking about
how lawyers can tell effective stories and make their cases come to life.
Mr. Bettinger has
litigated hundreds of personal injury, medical malpractice and nursing home
neglect claims, obtaining some of New Mexico’s largest personal injury verdicts.
He practices and consults in New Mexico and nationally. He is the author of Twelve Heroes, One Voice: Guiding Jurors to
Courageous Verdicts (www.trialguides.com). He focuses on bringing cases
alive, utilizing a variety of non-conventional approaches, including those from
improvisational acting, psychodrama and storytelling. In recent trials, he sang part of his
closings. Before attending University of New Mexico Law School, Carl went to
medical school at Boston University School of Medicine and then completed an
internal medicine residency at The University of New Mexico. In his spare time,
he goes fishing. A couple years ago he caught an 80 pound tarpon on a fly rod.
