This case tells the familiar story of a middle class that’s dying at the hand of liberal economic policies. It takes its persuasive power from anecdotes that many judges can relate too. Your rhetoric doesn’t need to be flashy; the narrative sells itself.
You’re appealing to what the judge already knows. The downside of that is your opponent will sound a lot more novel in comparison. Bring every point back to your core story, and don’t let the judge get distracted by your opponent.
Some negatives might attempt to overwhelm you with evidence. Only address what directly relates to your case. Your easiest mistake with this case is chasing rabbit trails. Resist the temptation.
With this matter of fact case, you can have a clear round and a clean win.
