Behavior Modification & Prediction
We started CSI because we understood the importance of focusing on the human behavioral aspects of civil litigation. In addition to legal strategy, the variables and pitfalls in litigation boil down to two primary factors: the performance of the litigants and the decision making of the triers of fact. Over the course of the last 30 years, we have helped trial teams achieve superior outcomes by delivering successful human behavior modification (witness effectiveness) and predictive insights on human decision making (settlement and trial research) that is unmatched in the industry.
