About Us

Learn the art of outsmarting from the defense’s worst nightmare himself, Keith Mitnik.

S3 Ep9 -New Voir Dire Questions

Keith finishes Season 3 discussing a few new voir dire questions. These questions are hot off the presses and cover important topics not addressed in his book. One deals with the biased spouse at home who is likely to exert influence over an otherwise unbiased prospective juror. The other identifies those who are not engineers, but still have the engineering gene (demand impossible levels of proof). I have found both of these new developments to be very valuable tools in the pursuit of just results.

S3 Ep8 - The Naming Game

In this episode, I talk about what I call "The Naming Game.” It‘s about calling out unfair defense tactics in ways that stick. For example, when they admit fault, but deny any meaningful harm, brand it "The Old 'So-What' Defense.” When the defense makes ugly suggestions that they don’t actually believe enough to say out loud (such as hinting that your client is a faker), tag it by saying, “The courtroom is not a place for hinting; it’s a place for saying what you mean and backing it up.” By naming unfair tactics in bold and memorable ways, you will make the defense pay for not shooting straight with the jury.

S3 Ep7 - Winning Before Beginning

In this segment of Brushstrokes, Keith talks about a hot-off-the-presses process for picking powerful, perfect words to build an unassailable framework for your case. What’s got him excited is a brand new way to quickly and scientifically pinpoint those “flashlight” words that illuminate safe passage to a just result. It’s all part of winning before beginning the trial.

S3 Ep6 - The Audacity To Ask

In this episode of Brushstrokes, Keith follows up on last month’s "Putting an End to Belittling Pain” with “The Audacity To Ask.” He lays out a process to get maximum justice, starting with overcoming your own bias and applying the golden rule to yourself.

S3 Ep 5 - Putting an End to Belittling Pain You Can’t See

In this episode of Brushstrokes, Keith shares a new system that will revolutionize the value of cases where the injury is not recognizable from the outside and does not interfere so much with doing, as with the experience of doing. He calls it “Putting an End to Belittling Pain You Can’t See."

S3 Ep4 - Depositions: An Adventure

Keith puts depositions in a new, intriguing perspective. They are not about boring discovery. They are about getting ready for trial — gathering sound bytes and intel. It is an adventure, not a drudge.

S3 Ep3 - The Panda Effect

In this episode of Brushstrokes, Keith discusses what he calls "The Panda Effect." Jurors are used to a steady stream of entertainment from smart phones, books, conversation, etc. Suddenly they are cut off and you are the only show in town. This impacts everything you do: some obvious, some not so obvious. It all matters.

S3 Ep2 - Helping Jurors Find Common Ground

In this episode of Brushstrokes, Keith will be sharing three brand-new strategies: orienting elder jurors in the case where your client is younger; uniting jurors in a time of political divisions; and dealing with that one bad juror.

S3 Ep1 - How to Get Zero Comparative Fault

In this episode of Brushstrokes, Keith will show you how to get zero comparative faults in trip-and-fall cases where the defense is open and obvious. It’s not about whether your client could have seen it or could have avoided it. It is about whether your client acted unreasonably or did something wrong. It is about blaming the difference between visibility and conspicuity (The competition for one’s attention).

Mitnik's Monthly Brushstrokes - S2 Ep12 - Keep Your Eye on the Ball

In this session, Keith will share two surefire ways to expose sneaky defense tactics. First, an analogy to deal with the old defense trick of creating glaring distractions hoping the jury loses its way. Second, a simple phrase to call the defense out for hinting that your client is exaggerating without coming right out and saying what they mean (trying to play it safe, while really playing dirty).
