  • Formulate and test trial themes, strategies and arguments through focus groups, mock trials, and community attitude surveys using the following stringent standards for our research:
  1. We maintain a national database of real jury pools
  2. Effective, professional jury research starts with a representative sample of prospective jurors in the trial venue and that is truly matched to the actual jurors that will serve in your case
  3. We work closely with our recruiters and monitor their work to ensure that our screening criteria are met and a representative sample of the jury pool is drawn for the research
  4. We never use respondents who have previously participated in a legal study
  5. We never recruit participants through newspaper or online advertising or at shopping malls
