Post Trial Interviews
The post-trial interview process provides the Trial Team with a tool to identify specifically what the jury found to be effective in its case presentation, as well as remedy any weaknesses in preparation for future trials. The Trial Consultant carefully tailors and scripts the interview questionnaire to obtain the most reliable and detailed feedback. Unlike the immediate post-trial interview, each juror is interviewed individually via telephone. Each juror has the opportunity to candidly speak his/her mind, without the influencing effects of fellow jurors and trial attorneys’ presence.
Telephone interviews are recorded with juror consent. The taped interview is then analyzed and presented to the Trial Team in the form of a written report. If appropriate, the consultant may also carefully probe for any juror misconduct and assist in obtaining signed affidavits for appeal purposes.
