Trial and Jury Consulting
Trial preparation is a bitch – especially when a jury is involved. Not to mention there are some less-than-stellar judges can make your legal life a living hell. The too-typical result of this kind of intensive planning and preparation is that most attorneys walk into that courtroom with a really bad case of tunnel vision. And that’s when those mortal errors and miscalculations start cropping up and killing your case.
- Do you find yourself trying to beat the other attorney instead of winning over the jury?
- Do you spend more time arguing with the judge than getting your core message across?
- Do you get so wrapped up in the process that you forget the jurors are all that really matters?
The road to winning a trial and a political campaign are exactly the same. Campaign managers and attorneys do the same thing. They use effective communication to get a group of people (or a judge) to vote for their client. It’s really that simple.
When you’re standing in front of a jury, communication is much more than words. Remember, you’re trying to make your point with people who couldn’t get out of jury duty. Just like the average voter, most jurors have the attention span of an off-meds ADHD sixth-grader coming off a three-day sugar and video gaming binge.
So, whether it’s a civil or criminal case, all attorneys can benefit from an expert third-party observer – one who catches the small things, while never losing sight of the big picture. If you’re paying attention, those jurors will tell you everything you need to know.
Forward Communication can help you:
- Craft a simple and effective core message and stick to it
- Effectively use the courtroom space to keep the jury focused on you
- Avoid the kind of body language mistakes that turn jurors off
- Communicate with the jury throughout the whole trial – not just the open and close
- Avoid getting into battles with the judge or opposing attorney that don’t promote your core message
- Understand when you’ve made your point it’s time to move on
- Whether it’s voir dire or the trial itself, Forward Communication lets the jury speak to us through body language and facial expressions
We can help you get through those difficult bench trials too.
When your client’s reputation and/or bank account is on the line, you need to bring every possible resource to bear. That’s why they call it zealous representation. Bring Forward Communication to your next trial. Just like it is with our campaign clients, we help attorneys win cases.
