Powerful jury selection & trial preparation can make the difference in winning your client’s case. Effective jury selection is one of the key aspects in the outcome of any trial. By using proven jury selection techniques and rapidly emerging technological advantages, attorneys can more readily develop insights into biases and beliefs of potential jurors. At the same time, drafting effective motions & pleadings, dealing with divided juries, and both direct & cross exam can best frame the facts to highlight your client’s positions. Tested strategies in trial prep & motion practice are often the best indicator for success in the courtroom.
