BIA’s trial consulting services are designed to understand the perceptions, attitudes and motivations of jurors and judges, resulting in a detailed, immersive analysis that helps you make strategic decisions about your cases.
We are proud to offer these services through our partnership with Blueprint Trial Consulting, giving you one contact to manage all of your litigation services needs, from the first litigation hold through the final court decision.
Based on our jury research and experience, we will work with your team to develop voir dire questions and supplement juror questionnaires to maximize the effectiveness of our peremptory challenges. During jury selection, we will use this information to determine the risk of each potential juror. After the jury has been selected, we will provide an analysis of each juror that includes suggested areas for persuading him or her during the trial.
A shadow jury with a makeup similar to that of the trial’s actual jury is selected and used each day of the trial. The shadow jury hears only the evidence available to actual jury members. Based on the shadow jurors’ feedback, we provide a daily report summarizing their reactions to the arguments, evidence and witnesses and provide recommendations for refining our trial strategies.
Poor communication from witnesses can quickly derail a strong case, which is why proper witness training and evaluation is critical for a successful outcome at trial. We will educate witnesses on how to effectively testify by identifying and teaching verbal and non-verbal behaviors, credibility-earning demeanors and effective ways for dealing with cross-examination questioning.
Graphics are used in trial to effectively educate and persuade decision-makers by supporting trial narratives, simplifying complex topics and providing a visual representation of key facts and evidence. Visual elements are critical to educate and persuade jurors and judges.
