Presented by Patrick Muscat, Assistant Prosecuting Attorney, Deputy Chief of the Special Prosecutions Division (Homicide, Major Drugs, Shootings Teams) Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office

Preparing and presenting a visual trial is a time-consuming process. The payoff in court is well worth the effort. Over the course of our speakers’ career, he’s received positive feedback regarding his visual trial presentations from juries, judges, defense attorneys, police officers, Medical Examiners, Lab Experts, and civilian witnesses.

Join us as Pat Muscat walks us through the visual trial basics: tools, software, strategies, ethics, and persuasion. He will also address some of the new technology that has helped his office continue to be productive during the COVID-19 pandemic.
