Putting a Case Together

The following 2007 essay by James W. McElhaney neatly summarizes some of the main things that a litigator must do to prepare a case for trial:

Putting a Case Together 

There are some pretrial preparation tasks - e.g., exploratory investigation and credibility assessment -- that McElhaney does not list. But it's hard to say everything at once.
If I am not mistaken, the current version of the Tillers-Schum MarshalPlan system captures all of the tasks that McElhany lists.
I call the current iteration of this software application "MarshalPlan 5.5" You can download this app for use on a Windows computer by going to and opening the subfolder "Windows" and then clicking on MarshalPlan 5.5exe (NOT MarshalPlan.5.5exe).
Apple Corporation seems to strip this exe file of its ability to run on Apple computers. Sorry!
The current limitations of the MarshalPlan software application are discussed here
