Trial Consulting Directory

Trial consulting, also known as a jury consulting or litigation consulting, is a profession that directly deals with aiding attorneys in many pre-trial preparations and can be used in criminal trials or civil lawsuits. Many people in this profession prefer litigation consultant because most of the cases do not make it to trial and are settled out of court or in arbitration. The preparations preformed by the trial consultant include but are not limited to witness preparation, improvement of arguments and rhetoric, jury selection, shadow juries, mock trials, focus groups and community attitude surveys.
  • When dealing with witness preparation the consultants have four main goals according the America Society of Trial Consultants which are attorney education, witness diagnosis, witness cure and follow up.
  • Trial Consultants also organize focus groups which is a group of people formed to research opinions, beliefs, and perceptions.
  • Another preparation tool provided by the consultants includes shadow juries. Shadow juries are used to evaluate and modify trial strategies and anticipate reactions.
  • Community attitude surveys are also preformed to do a scientific study of likely juror perceptions using key notes from that specific case to see responses from a wide range of people.
  • Mock Trials- Imitation trial to help in witness preparation and a opportunity to test our different argumentative strategies.
  • Jury Selection- Methods use to select jurors who will sit on the trial jury.

Jury Consulting
Voir dire is your opportunity to get to know the prospective jurors for your case. Quite often, attorneys will use peremptory challenges to de-select jurors based on demographics, or “hunches” based on their intuition. However, research has repeatedly revealed that juror demographics rarely predict verdicts. Instead, juror attitudes and beliefs are most important in determining their decisions. These attitudes are revealed by questioning prospective jurors about their thoughts and experiences during voir dire. An experienced Trial Consultant is capable of assisting you by developing themes and wording for such questioning, and aiding you in assessing the reactions of the members of the panel.

Witness Preparation
A witness’s presentation in court or at deposition is often critical to the outcome of the case. Most attorneys are well aware of the importance of preparing witnesses for deposition or trial, but few have the time needed to devote to this task. Additionally, some witnesses present with specific issues that affect their verbal or nonverbal communication which are best addressed by a professional with a background in the behavioral sciences.
