TCI WAS THE FIRST TO:
- TEACH THE CONVERSATIONAL APPROACH TO VOIR DIRE: LAWYERS SHOULD LISTEN MORE THAN THEY TALK
- TEACH EFFECTIVE METHODS FOR CAUSE CHALLENGES
- Use VALUE BELIEF questions as the criteria for deselection as opposed to demographics
- Teach attorneys how to avoid contamination in voir dire
- Eliminate the "Anyone here" and "Do you understand questions" during voir dire
- Create a voir dire database of over 33,000 voir dire questions categorized by type of question
Change the entire paradigm of voir dire into a Jury Deselection® process, rather than view it as a selection process. We do not select jurors, we eliminate biased jurors from our venire. This paradigm changes the way voir dire is perceived. The result is an emphasis on questions designed to get maximum challenges for cause.
Categorize voir dire questions into 5 areas:
- Questions that shed light on LIFE EXPERIENCE
- Questions that give litigators insight into which side the juror IDENTIFIES with
- Questions that identifies potential jurors PERSONALITY attributes
- Questions that examine potential jurors DECISION MAKING style
- Questions that identify important VALUE BELIEFS that guide challenges for cause and jury decision making

Wizpor® Witness: Discovery Re: Action®
With Wizpor® Witnesses: Discovery Re: Action®, you will receive real time feedback during witness depositions. Wizpor® technology simulcasts the deposition in real time to a secret, password protected hand-picked and anonymous "audience." While one attorney asks questions to the witness, an associate or paralegal can view live comments/opinions/observations/questions made by your "audience" and "audience" moderator. Questions, comments and observations are texted to your laptop or iPad. You will learn what additional questions to ask, what an audience finds important, and most importantly; what critical information will change their mind. You can modify strategies instantaneously, maximizing the chances for better discovery solutions to addressing the problem areas of your case.
Voir Dire Consultation®
With over 1500 voir dire consultations since 1978, Trial Consultants, Inc.® was the first to recognize that voir dire is a deselection process. In order to effectively exercise peremptory challenges the attorney must get a sample of deliberation behavior. Questions that lead to challenges for cause is an integral part of our strategy. This is accomplished by the Singerian Voir Dire Methodology.
A SimulJury® is a simultaneous virtual shadow jury. A SimulJury® can be used with both actual jurors during a trial or with mock jurors during the research phase. SimulJury® participants tend to provide more honest feedback then live shadow jurors or live mock jurors due to privacy. They also tend to be a closer match to a real jury due to a larger pool of potential participants.
This pragmatic, real time persuasion technology™ allows attorneys to change their message or presentation style instantly and sway jurors in the right direction. A SimulJury® can also be used in conjunction with Wizpor® [see www.wizpor.com] proprietary Persuasion Research Technology™ to evaluate and prepare a witness.
In Courtroom Assessment
We were the first to use social media* to provide our clients with feedback of critical testimony and evidence to guide direct and cross examination. Our trained staff, using our patented Wizpor® system, provides the intel to provide trial strategies that works.
Trial Consultants, Inc first introduced opinion streaming in 1999. Opinion Streams® allows attorneys to get reactions to their case issues from tapping into various cyber villages/communities. The best of both worlds are blended seamlessly in Opinion Stream®: anonymous responses increase candor while tapping into cyber communities providing insight into value beliefs and interests.
A perfect tool to shape voir dire strategy and diagnose problem areas.
