Mark Mandell’s Case FramingTM, released in 2015, quickly earned widespread acclaim as a classic and essential book for trial attorneys. Now, in Advanced Case FramingTM, Mark refines his Case Framing model and offers new ideas on Case Frames, I-Just-Can’t-Get-Over Issues, and Echoes.  Providing real examples and a case study to reinforce the principles of the model, Mark shows readers in a step-by-step format how to focus jurors’ attention on the true issues. Advanced Case Framing is a tool that all plaintiff lawyers should use to prepare and try a case from beginning to end so they can achieve better results for their clients.

This book is only available for purchase by plaintiff attorneys or their staff.  You do not need to be an AAJ member to purchase this book.  Nonmembers will need to create an account with shipping and contact information to purchase.

This book is not just a sequel to Mark’s innovative and brilliant first book, Case Framing. It’s a lot more than that. Mark takes his Case Framing concept to a whole new level of persuasion with careful explanations and copious examples, including a case study of what has to be one of the most difficult personal injury trials ever won by anyone, anywhere.
