About NLRG Jury Research Services Division

Waiting for the jury verdict is one of the most uncertain times in a jury trial. It is the moment of truth with many unanswered questions concerning the lead up to trial and the trial itself.

  • Did research and trial preparation efforts maximize the chances of success, both for settlement and trial?

  • Were the right decisions made in selecting the jury?

  • Was the case communicated strongly and effectively, leading jurors to understand and identify with it?

  • What verdict will they return?

We at the Jury Research Services Division of the National Legal Research Group, Inc., understand your concerns and, more importantly, understand jurors. We can help you maximize your effectiveness in jury trials.

The Jury Research Services Division of the National Legal Research Group, Inc., offers quality jury research nationwide to attorneys. Since 1982, we have assisted civil and criminal defendants, plaintiffs, and federal and state prosecutors in a wide variety of cases.

Our Mission

We bring a unique perspective to criminal cases. Over the years we have assisted both prosecutors and defense attorneys. We have assisted the Department of Justice in the Iran-Contra prosecutions of Lt. Col. Oliver North and Rear Admiral John Poindexter, the Environmental Crimes Section, and the Public Integrity Section. Our work includes providing assistance to U. S. Attorney’s Offices from across the nation and to Attorneys General from several states, including the State of Rhode Island in the prosecution of the owners of the Station nightclub where 100 individuals were killed in a 2003 nightclub fire.

We have assisted criminal defendants in numerous cases, including North Carolina v. Joan Little; one of the Attica prison riots trials; and in pretrial issues in United States v. Zacarias Moussaoui. We have also assisted in numerous death penalty cases. Our assistance in criminal trials is not limited to jury trials, but includes highly publicized courts-martial as well.

Our commitment to our clients yields diversity in the civil area. We have assisted both plaintiffs and defendants in hundreds of cases. For example, we recently assisted the defense in a patent case (defense verdict, Level 3 Communications v. Limelight Networks, 2009) and personal injury plaintiffs in Aichs v. Barbour et. al. ($5.25 million, 2009) and Lester v. Allied Concrete Company, Inc. et al. ($10.5 million, 2010), and Lo v. GRTC ($8 million, 2009).
