Guidance Where You Need It Most

  • What are the strengths and weaknesses in my case?
  • How can I craft a persuasive trial story for my audience?
  • Which jurors will be most, as well as least, receptive to my story?
  • How can the research findings position our case for a better outcome?
  • Are my witnesses adequately prepared to tell their story in both direct and cross-examination?

Whether you are a sole practitioner, large firm, insurance carrier, or government agency, we are committed to tailoring our services around what is most valuable, actionable, and effective for your specific case. Our work is based in science, supported by technology, and backed by years of dedicated service. 

Explore What We Do Best

At Trial Innovations, we believe quality research is a powerful tool for crafting, testing, and revising a persuasive story, audience, and trial strategy. With over 40 years of collective experience working on criminal and civil litigation across the country, we know what it takes to succeed. This is how we do it: 

Mock Trial and Focus Group

Harness the predictive power of presenting evidence, exhibits, and witnesses before the actual trial. Understand exactly what mock jurors are thinking and feeling in real time with our electronic feedback system.

Shadow Jury

Utilize jury-eligible member’s from your venue’s community to observe the trial as it unfolds. By debriefing them daily, we are able to provide you with immediate feedback that you can use to shape your approach.

Change of Venue

Evaluate the potential impact of pretrial publicity on your client’s fair trial rights and utilize the findings to request remedial measures.

Jury Selection

Develop predictive models and targeted voir dire questions to help craft a jury most receptive to your trial story.

Witness Preparation

We help evaluate your witnesses, address their concerns and fears, and provide them with the tools necessary to convey their part of the trial story in a persuasive and effective manner.

Trial Strategy

Through our experience and research, we will help you develop, clarify, and simplify your trial story so it will resonate with the broadest audience possible.
