OCRIMS Monthly Lunch Meeting
The Reverse Reptile Theory
Plaintiff attorneys have deployed the “Reptile Theory” against Defendant corporations with incredible success. Testimony that results in a risk manager or chief executive getting “reptiled” can devastate a case. Our presentation will focus on reversing this reptile strategy and developing a strategy to testify properly, and explain how the psychology works and to take advantage of it in the defense.
Speaker John H. Toohey is a Partner for Bremer Whyte Brown & O’Meara, LLP. He is an A.V. Preeminent rated attorney with a practice that is focused on contract negotiation and litigation, complex product liability, construction, and wrongful death/catastrophic injury.
John has successfully represented hundreds of clients in alternative dispute resolution and trial, including multiple cases to jury verdict. John was recently recognized by Los Angeles Magazine as one of the “Top Attorneys in Southern California.” He has also been selected into the 2017 “Lawyers of Distinction,” which limits membership to the top 10% of lawyers in the United States based upon qualifications, license, reputation, experience, and disciplinary history.
