Jury Research & Trial Consultant Services
You can know your case facts, your arguments and the law. But until you know your jury, do you really know your case? DecisionQuest’s jury consulting and research solutions give you the answers you need to build the case you need. We’re how you know your jurors. Our trial preparation services include in-person and remote mock trials, online jury surveys, venue analysis and more.

We recognize that each case is unique and can benefit from distinct jury research and litigation consultation services to help develop a competitive strategy and craft compelling arguments. DecisionQuest’s litigation and trial consulting services provide a customized approach through the entire litigation lifecycle — before, during and after trial. Here are just a few of the ways in which we can help:
- Early insight into the potential strengths and vulnerabilities of your case through a case assessment with our most experienced consultants.
- Case strategy and theme development through in-person or remote mock trials, focus groups, online surveys and other research studies.
- Witness preparation to enhance credibility and effectiveness for depositions, arbitrations and trials.
- Strategic legal graphics and demonstratives to support and enhance your case themes. It’s particularly useful to test legal graphics during research studies. In addition, legal graphics are designed to enhance expert reports, evidentiary hearings, Daubert and Markman hearings, submissions to court, settlement conferences and other pre-trial phases of a litigation as well as jury and bench trials or arbitrations.
- Creation of focused, research-based written juror questionnaires and oral voir dire questions designed to both uncover and take advantage of pre-existing juror biases.
- Rapid collection and analysis of potential jurors’ social media presence and other internet activity and data to help inform jury selection decisions.
- Assist the trial team at jury selection in uncovering which jurors should be stricken for cause, evaluating jurors who should participate in additional questioning, and critically, make recommendations on which jurors should be considered for peremptory challenges.
- Ongoing assessment of jurors’ behaviors, attitudes and perceptions with a shadow jury.
- Complete trial presentation assistance leveraging our team of experienced Trial Technicians who have over 6,000 days of experience in the “hot seat”.
- Ongoing, on-site graphics support from a dedicated legal graphic designer to work with you in the “war room,” in addition to remote graphics support.
- Regardless of the trial outcome, we can provide post-trial analysis, uncovering in-depth insights into how juries are likely to react to similar arguments and exhibits in pending cases or serial litigation. Though a particular case is over, this type of information can benefit your ongoing and future cases.
- Post-trial jury interviews provide issue-by-issue insight into which details of the case swayed or convinced jurors during the trial, including their perceptions of everyone in the courtroom—from judges and attorneys to witnesses.
