To be victorious in proving the unseen emotional injury, you need to present more than just facts and law, you need first to ?humanize? your client. One way to do this is to ?give? the client a life. What was a day in the life of your client before the injury or death? Did he or she

hug their children, take them to school, and work all day everyday to keep a roof over their heads and clothes on their back? Make your client someone who the jury might know or want to know. Paint your client as human, and appeal to the goodness in his or her life.
