How It Works

There are 5 steps in a JuryMatters case.

  • Attorneys prepare their JuryMatters case.
  • Jurors review the evidence and render their individual verdicts online.
  • JuryMatters research experts analyze verdict data.
  • JuryMatters legal experts conduct a Judicial Review.
  • JuryMatters submits the Verdict Summary to the Attorneys.

Step 1: Attorneys prepare their JuryMatters case. The Attorney prepares a Case Summary, which briefly presents both the Plaintiff and Defendant’s cases. Each case will be 4-5 pages and may include diagrams, illustrations and pictures to help present the facts more clearly. The names of the Parties and other sensitive information are changed to maintain confidentiality.

Step 2: Jurors review the evidence and render their individual verdicts online. JuryMatters randomly selects the Jury Panel in the appropriate jurisdiction from our pool of pre-screened Jurors. Using JuryMatters' secure website,those Jurors review the Case Summary and Jury Instructions; complete the Verdict Form and determine an award, if appropriate; as well as answer the post-verdict "Your Opinion" Questions, which probe their thoughts on the case and reasons for their verdicts.

Step 3: JuryMatters research experts analyze verdict data. JuryMatters principals use their extensive market research experience to assist attorneys to not only understand what Jurors think about their case, but why. Analysis of the JuryMatters verdicts is segmented by gender, age groups, courtroom expereince and other key demographics.

Step 4: JuryMatters legal experts conduct a Judicial Review. Our senior judicial consultants use their years of experience on the Circuit Court bench to review the case. The Review includes recommendations on the case theory and all aspects of trial prep.

Step 5: JuryMatters submits the Verdict Summary to the Attorneys. JuryMatters principals share the jury and judicial findings with attorneys in a confidential Verdict Summary and presentation. No Jurors’ names are ever released. Attorneys use the input to fine tune their case strategy and trial prep.
