Philosophy of Jury Consulting Practice
Our philosophy is to make trial lawyers better at what they do, by improving trial strategy through listening to what matters to jurors. There is a continuum of jury consulting methods. We apply the best match in consideration of the client’s dispute, risk involved, jury research budget, venue and principles at stake.
Jury research gives the trial team an advantage in developing case strategy, jury selection, and settlement decision-making. Verdict Success provides litigators in major firms throughout the country with powerful, strategic research results that achieve favorable verdicts in the courtroom.
Planning Your Trial Strategy - Putting all the Pieces Together
Case Scenario Research
Case Scenario Research is the most effective method to measure jurors’ perceptions of the issues and find predictors for voir dire. In testing case issues online since 2005, we see what is important to jurors. Know your audience. Learn from them. Develop better themes and voir dire questions with predictive values.
During this pandemic, social distancing has changed face-to-face research and mock trials. We set up virtual mock trials. Our team is proficient in the technological methods needed to mock try your case. We tailor video or live presentations while mock jurors participate from the safety of their own living room.
When jury trials resume, we are ready to assist trial teams with jury selection. Developing voir dire questions that delve into the heart of the case and testing them is the best practice. A la carte, we write voir dire questions and assist at counsel table as we pair our experience with observations and strategize in deselection of jurors.
