Who Are We?
We are a team of 2 who help you decide your best trial strategy.
How do we do this?
Through a series of meetings, face to face or via video or both we take your case and pick it apart piece by piece, dissecting it, looking for the flaws and potential downfalls in your case so as we can advise you as to the best way forward.
Whether it is by holding a mock trial with or without a shadow/mock jury or on a one-to-one basis we show you the best way to get the results you need. This could be by giving you training on when to say the right thing, what questions to pose to a jury for consideration or to show you when the silent “pause” can be used to your advantage to cause the “element of doubt” in a case. You may need help with how to effectively communicate a complex or complicated stack of evidence.
Evaluating and preparing your witnesses, on how to react, or not react, how to dress, how to present themselves, understanding courtroom etiquette and procedure. Coaching them in advance of their hearing to be the most prepared for the day from communication and coping techniques to specific case related information, dress code and their demeanour.
We evaluate your witnesses, are they credible, believable and likeable do we need to modify the trial strategy to suit? We can advise them on how to speak more clearly, be more confident and be more comfortable in their role in the trial.
Guilty or Not Guilty?
This is not our consideration. We are looking to get you the result YOU want for your client. We are not bound by anyone or any Court so there are things that can be disclosed to us by your party that you may not know but we can help them without having the duty of privilege to reveal to any Court.
We work in cooperation with a lawyer and their witness almost as a reviewer to see their effectiveness of their arguments of case to review how it would affect judges and witnesses. We do not employ and illegal acts we are simply highly skilled in litigation preparations, presentation and effectiveness. We can prepare your witness for the road ahead and are highly trained when it comes to those who suffer with learning difficulties and mental health issues.
Looking at ways in which we can get the lawyer to influence decisions potential jurors come to in a trial to allow for a favourable verdict whether this is for the defending or prosecuting lawyer. Helping the lawyer to prepare questions for potential jurors for cross examination and if needed assisting in a re write the “Voir dire” process where the jurors are explained the case, this can be written in a way where even if a juror is prejudice it will make them question their thoughts and responses to sway in favour of the defendant or prosecutor.
We analyse body language, facial expressions during practice / mocks and during the trial with the jurors to see how much the case is in favour. We continue to observe and analyse during the trail to assess how effectively the lawyer is conveying his/her view of the case.
During cross examination / testimony we can note when jurors may seem emotional from testimony or how they may remain unaffected, there may be discomfort amongst jurors which may cause a hung jury causing a mistrial.
We can go on to review the closing statement to see which would “play out” best with the jurors amending as necessary to sway in favour of the outcome required.
After assessment of the lawyer’s case strategy plan and review of all testimonies and statements it will allow for us to give a decision on If the case is win, loose or on the fence allowing us to adjust everything needed accordingly to your favour to give you the best possible outcome.
You only have one chance to make a good impression, there will not be another chance. Once you, as a lawyer are standing up to introduce yourself to the jurors and the Court you are being sized up as if on stage and they are all ready deciding if they like you or not. So, your “Voir Dire” is the most important time to set the very best impression. We help you develop your Voir Dire strategy to make sure that it is designed to elicit the most information possible from the jurors. This can also be done with a mock jury in place and then questioning them about how they feel of your
