January 2021
Francis Morrison, Donald W. Hawthorne, Jason Murata, and Ryan Cook

Axinn partners Francis Morrison, Don Hawthorne, Jason Murata, and Ryan Cook authored, "When Japanese Witnesses Testify in U.S. Courts: Answers to Nine Common Concerns." This update reflects observations on this subject that one of Axinn's senior trial lawyers, Francis Morrison, has taken away from a career involving over 70 trials, in several of which he has conducted examinations before U.S. juries of witnesses whose first language was Japanese, German, or Spanish. Fran's comments address questions concerning the challenges facing witnesses in U.S. court whose first language is not English; the role of interpreters; how to prepare witnesses for the experience of trial; and the extra steps that can be considered for the “big ticket” case.
