Chapman Serves as NITA Faculty for DC Advanced Trial Skills Program

By Peter DePaolis

Koonz, McKenney, Johnson & DePaolis L.L.P partner Paulette Chapman was one of the invited faculty for the National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA) Advanced Advocates program held November 10-14 at the US District Courthouse in Washington, D.C. NITA is the nation’s leading provider of legal advocacy skills training.  Participants came from large and small law firms and government agencies.

“As one of the instructors in this intense and interactive program, it is rewarding to help others hone their trial skills from preparing opening and closing statements to conducting direct and cross-examinations of witnesses,” Chapman said. “I benefit from the immersive experience and enjoy sharing trial experience with lawyers from across the country.”

An honors graduate of George Washington University Law School, Chapman has been representing plaintiffs in personal injury cases since 1988.
