Transcript of a presentation given during the 2017 Symposium by Wade Davies a partner at Ritchie Dillard Davies & Johnson in Knoxville, Tennessee. You should never assume that you know how to do something no matter how long you have been practicing law. One of the best things you can do if you’re trying cases, no matter how long you’ve been doing it, is to take out the rule book and re-read the Rules of Evidence and the Rules of Criminal Procedure. When you read the rules in a different context when you’re working on different cases, reconsidering the rules will give you different tactics that you can use that you wouldn’t have come up with before.
