TRIAL CONSULTING 

End-to-end jury research guides the development, delivery and deliberation of case themes

While outside counsel is immersed in building the best case from the facts and evidence, CSI analyzes how the case will be received by the public, clients, stockholders, deponents and the jury. Through our scientific process, each of the essential elements of the case – from themes, to witness testimony, to our empirical profile of the most and least advantageous juror characteristics – become increasingly clarified and integrated, enhancing the potential for a favorable outcome.

Perception is reality

Courtroom Sciences Inc. ®  recognizes, as do many academic studies, that jury awards are determined by the attitudes, beliefs and life experiences of the jurors, which are drawn from a cross-section of all walks of life and social contexts. Jury trials are more about perceptions and memories created during trials than they are about the legal merits of cases. 

On this basis, CSI applies proven psychological persuasion techniques to litigation matters. CSI researches and develops strategies based upon why jurors feel the way they do about the litigation parties and how that can influence the outcome .
