Paul Mark Sandler, Esq. and James K. Archibald, Esq.
Three decades have passed since the first edition of this pioneering book. Pattern Examinations of Witnesses for the Maryland Lawyer has achieved national recognition and has been the basis for the authors’ Model Witness Examinations, published by the Litigation Section of the American Bar Association and keyed to practice in federal courts.
Now, for the first time since 1996, Pattern Examinations of Witnesses for the Maryland Lawyer has been completely updated, to reflect amendments to applicable Maryland statutes, rules and case law. More than sixty pattern examinations — including nine new ones developed since the release of the Third Edition ten years ago — show you how to conduct witness examinations for practically every issue that arises at trial. These patterns demonstrate clearly and concisely how to offer testimony on direct examination, how to cross-examine and impeach various types of witnesses, and how to use discovery in the examination of witnesses. Sandler and Archibald not only illustrate the pattern examinations, but they also provide excellent commentary, including citations to the rules and cases that you can rely on to ensure compliance with the rules of evidence and to meet opposing counsel’s objections.
