Birmingham, AL. Maynard Cooper was pleased to recently host the Alabama State Bar White Collar Crime Committee for a Continuing Learning Education seminar entitled “The Art and Science of Cross Examination.” The program featured a panel of practitioners with over 130 years of combined experience trying white collar criminal matters and cross examining thousands of witnesses. Panelists discussed the implementation steps required to employ techniques to maximize the impact of cross examinations, suggestions for dealing with recalcitrant and deceitful witnesses, and methods designed to extract helpful information from less hostile witnesses. Maynard Cooper Shareholders Anthony "A.J." Joseph, Erica Williamson Barnes, and Harrison Smith have been actively involved in the WCCC since its founding in 2013 and frequently participate in its programming.
