Chapter 88 A Tricky Point
“Third, when the defendant was developing a project, no considerations were given…”
Elisa explained her points eloquently.
Gareth stared blankly while listening.
Vincent paled. He thought that Elisa was just an average lawyer. But to hear her make detailed points without a moment of hesitation was a shock!
If he couldn’t dispute her points, then victory would slip from their grasps.
Will smiled. She was telling the truth.
Elisa didn’t give a single look to Gareth throughout her explanation. When she finished, she turned towards the judge. “That was our clarification on the five points. Now, I would like to clarify the lawsuit filed by my client.”
The judge was amazed and bemused by Elisa. He nodded. “Please proceed.”
The audience noticed something.
Rachel exclaimed, “My God! Elisa didn’t even bring her documents with her!”
Charli smiled lightly. She used to worry about Elisa, who seemed to be forgetful about her things often. But she realized later, for Elisa, those documents were just a nuisance. Their opponents could even steal the documents, giving them a head start in the case.
Rachel watched, incredulous as Elisa continued her explanation.
“So… all those things Elisa said earlier, she’s memorized them in her head! She could even point out the exact article to argue against Vincent’s points. Even if you prepare counterarguments beforehand, to be able to deduce your opponent’s arguments this accurately, she’s…”
Rachel’s doubts about Elisa’s ability disappeared, and awe replaced them. To be able to argue against Vincent Shane, were things as simple as they seemed to be?
The audience gaped at the scene.
They thought that Elisa was just a mediocre lawyer. But against their expectations, she was outstanding! Even Vincent was caught off guard.
Elisa elaborated another three points speedily. Her points were justified, leaving no room for argument.
It seemed that Elisa was twisting the truth, depicting Wickam Group in a bad light. But she managed to convey it in a way as if her points were the truth the entire time!
Gareth glowered as he swallowed his anger.
Elisa Benett! That damned Elisa Benett! How could she keep him in the dark!
He knew that she had studied in law but never thought much of it. He thought that she was just an ordinary person.
It seemed impossible that even Vincent would struggle against her.
The judge looked towards Vincent. “Does the defense counsel have anything to say?”
Vincent drew a deep breath.
He knew that Will would employ a first-rate lawyer. After all, Will would have known that Gareth would appoint Vincent.
Having done his homework, Vincent had no trouble coming up with arguments for Elisa’s first two points. But that last point…
He frowned. It would be a tricky point to argue against.
No one could have used such a tactic other than Iris. But now even Elisa could do it?!
He began his speech.
The judge nodded. The two points sounded reasonable.
At the third point, Vincent paused momentarily.
