At Hoffman Brylo Consulting, we shape the story of each case to make it the most persuasive to jurors. We rely on experience and research results rather than stereotypes. We believe that our strategies play a significant part in the mediation or trial outcome. We can help save on litigation costs by preparing the case for mediation and leveraging it to obtain a more favorable settlement. We help determine whether to settle, what amount to settle for, and help to convince the mediator and opposing counsel of the case merits as seen through the eyes of their potential jury.
If the case goes to trial, we can help create a case story structure that best speaks to jurors’ beliefs and attitudes. We prepare attorneys for jury selection so by teaching them how to ask questions that elicit truthful and thorough responses. We help with witness preparation by ensuring that the attorney is guiding the witness properly to emphasize case themes and by eliminating nervous behaviors of expert or lay witnesses. We are skilled in drafting opening statements that will speak to the jurors’ unconscious and allow them to see the rest of the evidence through a certain lens. We are trained in drafting closing arguments in a manner that teaches jurors to fight effectively against opposing jurors in the deliberation room. Regardless of the phase of the case, we are prepared to help make it as strong and persuasive as possible.
