I was born in Twin Falls, Idaho, and moved to Boise, Idaho when I was three years old. I lived in Boise until the end of third grade. I then moved to Las Vegas. I attended 8 different schools from 1st-12th grade. I played junior college baseball in California. I finished my bachelor's degree at UNLV. Just before I graduated, I married my high school sweetheart, Lou, and we have been happily married for 22 years. I attended UNLV Boyd School of Law and graduated in 2003. I started my own law firm, Sean K. Claggett & Associates, on January 1, 2005, with a single employee. My firm has changed names two times, the first was Claggett, Hays & Sykes and the second and final change was to its current name, Claggett & Sykes. Today our firm has over 55 employees which includes 22 lawyers. I love baseball and golf, and as I write this bio I am at St. Andrews enjoying day 1 of the 150th Open.

I was born in Munich, Germany. My father was an officer in the U.S. Army stationed in Bavaria (my love of beer started at a young age). My father was an engineer and my mother a graphic designer. Consequently, an unbelievable fusion of logic and creativity permeates my DNA. I grew up in New York City, and then enlisted in the U.S. Air Force at the age of 19. Six of the nine years I spent in the Air Force were spent overseas—to include 13 months in the first Gulf War. Upon separating from the U.S. Air Force, I began a career in adult education. I spent the next 15 years in the seminar business. I ran businesses that provided pre-licensing and continuing education seminars in real estate, insurance, financial securities, and appraisal. While I was successful in this endeavor, I was unfulfilled. So, at 44 years old I quit my job and went to law school. After graduating the UNLV Boyd School of Law, I began practicing law as a Public Defender in Sin City. I have been with the Claggett & Sykes Law Firm since 2018, and I have never looked back.

The Trial Lawyer Toolkit: Tools That Drive Nuclear Verdicts

We will use actual cases tried to verdict throughout the presentation to demonstrate how these items have translated into trial success.

Hour 1: The Worksheets that Guide your Trial Strategy, Prep, and Execution

Learn about the worksheets our attorneys use in every case, and how these worksheets—when properly completed—will help you create the most powerful opening statement, order of proof, and voir dire.

Hour 2: Big Data Analysis

It is possible for an attorney to have a high level of certainty about whether they are likely to win their case, how much money they will win for their client, how jurors will decide comparative fault issues, how jurors will perceive key evidence, whether a witness is credible, and much more. Put another way, the idea that jury trials are unpredictable, wild, and uncertain, is a myth.It is a myth borne of a deficit of information, a failure to recognize that humans are largely predictable, and a slowness to adopt modern methods fully in use in other industries. To that end, a scientific, big-data approach to preparing cases is changing the work of trial lawyers.

Hour 3: The Workdays

In this hour, we will discuss the manner in which we bring together the data collected in the worksheets with the data gathered from the Big Data focus group. These two sources of information—when properly synthesized—are the tools you need to maximize your trial success.

Hour 4: Live Focus Groups

This hour will discuss the necessity for and the use of live focus groups. Most importantly, when and how to use them to provide the greatest impact. Neither Big Data focus groups nor Live focus groups can take the place of the other. Both are necessary to provide you with a valid understanding of the trial to come.

Hour 5: Voir Dire

Learn the techniques we use to bring our juries together, and the techniques we use to make sure we get rid of the jurors that will never see the case favorably for our side.

Hour 6: Opening Statements

See how we used the information contained from our workday worksheets to create the most powerful opening statements in the industry. We will also discuss the use of powerpoint and how it is way more powerful than you ever knew.
