The Psychology of Jury Persuasion

Leverage Bias & Behavior Science Expertise

Never underestimate the power of psychology in shaping perception and mastering persuasion to unequivocally win justice for your clients.

Trial attorneys are provided the edge they need to secure victory. Learn how jurors will think, process information, react, and make decisions. Whether evaluating your opening and closing statements, scrutinizing day and life videos, analyzing credibility, or coaching witness and expert testimonies, you are supported at every stage of the trial process, where decisions and outcomes ultimately rest in the hands of people.

JURY SELECTION

Utilizing forensic analysis in bias and behavior, attorneys receive tailored questions and effective questioning techniques designed to uncover potential jurors’ attitudes and beliefs. During the voir dire process, subtle cues are observed, and personality profiles are created to predict the extent to which an individual will dominate or acquiesce during deliberation—critical factors in selecting an impartial jury.

THE FOUR INFLUENCERS TO A JURORS VERDICT

I have developed the following cognitive and behavioral psychological framework as a guide for attorneys in trial preparation. Each component within this structure is crucial in shaping a juror’s perception, evaluation, and overall experience, ultimately impacting the verdict outcome.

An often overlooked aspect by jury consultants is understanding how individuals navigate group deliberation, assuming passive, active, or dominant roles based on group dynamics, especially in scenarios involving differing opinions, heightened emotions, and high-stakes situations.

Every subtle detail is crafted around the art of perception and persuasion in the pursuit of justice for your client. Addressing all four areas adequately is essential to influencing the final verdict.
