If you’ve never worked with a trial consulting firm, you may be wondering, What is a trial consultant? In the simplest terms, a trial consultant is the point of contact between an attorney and the consulting firm’s internal team of presentation professionals. However, that description doesn’t capture the wealth of benefits a trial consultant brings to the table. Trial consultants are your right-hand before and during trial, ensuring your case presentation is technical, sophisticated, efficient, and persuasive.
What is a Trial Consultant and How Do They Benefit My Case?
Trial consultants help you prepare for trial by assisting with theme development and message clarity, understanding juror attitudes (including attribution theory), and crafting a unified presentation with powerful visuals. In our digital world it is not just beneficial to use technology in the courtroom, it is critical to your success. Jurors are accustomed to receiving and processing information in a digital format. Therefore presenting information in a familiar and memorable way helps keep jurors focused while boosting their understanding and retention of your case.
Trial consultants also help reduce stress and increase efficiency during trial preparation by taking on a project management role. With one person overseeing the development of demonstratives and trial exhibits, they can ensure that projects are remaining on track and that the resulting presentation is coherent, unified, and tailored to achieve case goals. It also provides litigators with a single point of contact to receive information on and the status of multiple projects, freeing them up to focus on their case preparation.
