The Who, What & Why of Jury Consultants

Lawyers who represent clients in high-stake  litigation matters leave nothing to chance when it comes to preparing their cases for trial.  Not only do they staff their trial teams with the brightest lawyers, paralegals, and industry-leading expert witnesses, they also rely on the expertise and experience of jury consultants.

iPad Video in Jury Deliberations

iPads in Jury Deliberations

What if you could hand a juror an iPad to deliberate with? This exact scenario came up in a recent trial where we had audiovisual evidence that was presented in court, but that we also wanted the jury to have easy access to while they decided our case.

Complexity Communicated Succinctly

The complexity of litigation is extremely difficult to communicate simply. Boiling down a case to its core components, key players and critical decisions is paramount to helping arm decision makers with the essential information they need to decide in your favor. Sometimes, it just isn't possible to condense the material as much as you would like to. In those instances, the goal should be to communicate all of the necessary information as succinctly as possible. In one...

Remote Witness Testimony at Trial

Remote Witnesses In Washington County Arkansas Bench Trial

Witness logistics at trial can be a little bit like juggling a chainsaw, a torch and a two-edged knife… or maybe two of each at the same time. It may be as simple as asking your witness to wake up a few minutes earlier to avoid traffic when driving to the courthouse. But more often than not, there are a myriad of factors in play that are entirely out of your control and can sometimes feel...

“I didn’t say you stole my car.”

That’s a good fact, right? On paper it communicates a lot of information and answers quite a few different questions at the same time. It’s in black and white, two-dimensional: “I didn’t say you stole my car.” Written language leaves a lot to be desired. Let’s face it, the open-endedness inherent in the written word is why we have disagreements and lawsuits. Interpretations run the gamut and all of the good intentions, clarifications, and qualifying statements in...

How to Present Your Case in Trial Just Like Pixar Creates Movies

Released all the way back in 1995, it revolutionized hollywood and brought the awe-inspiring combination of art and technology of entirely computer animated films to the forefront. Since that time, Pixar has continued to produce blockbuster after blockbuster with movies like Cars, Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo, and Up, just to name a few. The company’s success is staggering.
