Jury Solutions Consulting

Jury Solutions provide consultation on any aspect of litigation, including the following:

  • Theme development: Lawsuits aren’t won or lost because of a magical phrase. Instead, a phrase becomes magical when it can perfectly encapsulate what jurors are already thinking about the case. Our objective feedback enables you to select the right thematic approach; one that both fits your case and is powerful enough to transcend the differences between jurors.
  • Case analysis: We review critical case materials including videotaped deposition excerpts and give an assessment of case strengths and weaknesses, recommended themes as well as voir dire questions and strategies. Most case analyses take anywhere from two to ten hours.
  • Opening and closing statements: We work with you in advance to develop the powerful, clear and compelling statements so you are fully prepared at trial. This includes assistance with writing, editing, reorganizing as well as your delivery. By videotaping a practice session, we help you refine your technique so that your presentation is seamless.
  • Demonstrative evidence: We help you develop effective demonstrative charts that are easy to understand and capture the theme of the case.
  • Witness preparation for depositions and cross examination: Now that more litigants are using videotaped depositions, the need for preparation is even greater. Before a witness’s testimony is forever imprinted in video or in jurors’ minds, we work with the witness to help them recognize the often superficial impediments to clear and effective communication. Once witnesses understand what triggers their mannerisms, they can avoid making mistakes when it counts.
  • Witness preparation for direct examination: It is the lucky lawyer who questions his or her client and is completely satisfied with the response. The good news is that witness preparation doesn’t require major personality renovations or psychoanalysis. When we work with a witness, rather than focus exclusively on the witness, we examine how well or poorly the lawyer and witness respond to each other’s communication styles and cues. This prevents the witness from feeling defensive and is the most effective (and simple) way to convert disjointed testimony into a convincing story.
  • Witness evaluation: We review the testimony of witnesses who have been deposed by videotape, giving the attorney recommendations regarding the witness' overall credibility, strengths and weaknesses, as well as recommendations for how the attorney can best leverage those strengths (or weaknesses) during trial.
  • Post-verdict juror interviews: Lawyers often say they learn their most valuable lessons after losing. That is true when they learn how jurors felt about their case. While not all jurisdictions allow post-verdict interviews, many do and as third-parties, jurors feel comfortable giving us honest, critical feedback that we then share with you.
“Carolyn’s insights and recommendations are invaluable. In addition to being a top notch jury consultant, Carolyn is an attorney and is well versed in the legal issues a litigator must confront at trial. In one case, feedback we received from Carolyn convinced us to present two controversial pieces of evidence at trial which we initially had virtually no intention of using. We received a substantial verdict in that case - and the jurors we spoke to after the trial told us that the two pieces of evidence were among the most important items they considered during their deliberations. We give Jury Solutions our highest possible recommendation.”
