Cleveland, OH -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/25/2014 -- Michael D. Shroge, an award-winning attorney with Plevin & Gallucci Co., LPA, a prominent law firm in Cleveland and Columbus that represents the rights of individuals in medical malpractice, personal injury and workers’ compensation cases, will present an educational program for new attorneys at the Ohio Association for Justices 2014 Annual Convention, May 7-9, 2014 in Columbus.
Shroge is one of the most knowledgeable medical malpractice attorneys in Ohio. Prior to joining Plevin & Gallucci, he spent several years as a partner in a medical malpractice defense firm and as associate counsel for the Cleveland Clinic. He repeatedly has been named to the list of Ohio Super Lawyers® and has been recognized by his peers for leadership and professional achievement. Shroge received OAJ’s prestigious Distinguished Service Award in 2012.
Shroge’s presentation – Depositions from Lay Witness to Trial Expert: The How and the Why – will help young attorneys learn how to approach the deposition from beginning to end, including developing the outline and conducting the deposition. ““My goal is to enable new trial lawyers to gain a deeper understanding of the importance of the deposition and how to do it effectively,” Shroge explained. “The answers to two key questions – who to depose in a case and why to depose them – can make an enormous difference in an attorney’s ability to achieve justice for someone who’s been injured.”
The Ohio Association for Justice is Ohio’s leading organization for plaintiffs’ attorneys. OAJ is the only statewide attorneys association whose mission is to preserve the Constitutional rights of Ohio individuals and protect their access to the civil justice system.
