When the Stakes are High


Do you know how your case will be perceived by a jury? Can you afford to take a gamble and possibly find out that you were wrong? And since most cases settle, how often do you come to a mediation armed with data that brings your opponent to your number, instead of forcing you to theirs?

It’s easy to become so entrenched in a case that you need an outside perspective to reveal blindspots and options. At Jury Solutions LLC, we won't psychoanalyze you, your case, or your witnesses. Instead, we will help you leverage the unique DNA of your case so you can win both inside and outside of the courtroom.

  • Bruce L. Elstein

    Partner, Goldman Gruder & Woods, LLC, whose above testimonial derives from his work on a precedent-setting HIPAA case (Bryne vs. Avery Center for Obstetrics and Gynecology, P.C.) that took 12 years to get to a jury.

    “Carolyn provided on point and instructive insight into the minds of the potential jurors. I occasionally found myself veering away from her concentrated focus and would call to discuss my ideas. She was able to talk through the good ones and explain why the others were counterproductive. I thought of her then and even more so after the verdict that she was my “case therapist”. With her input I remained confident and focused in the trial. The verdict reflected her work on me, and the case. I was more than thrilled to have her support.”

  • Attorney Giovanna Weller,

    Partner and co-leader of Carmody Torrance Sandak & Hennessey’s Litigation Group

    “Jury Solutions recently conducted an online focus group (jury survey) for a trial in an employment discrimination/retaliation case. Carolyn had a terrific way of connecting with mock jurors to get valuable information on how they perceived the case and the parties. The most important lesson we learned from the survey was that the mock jurors were willing to reject the plaintiff’s case without rejecting the plaintiff personally. This information really helped shaped my cross examination of the plaintiff. At the end of the trial, the real jurors were just like the mock jurors. Thank you, Carolyn!”

  • Lisa Banks

    Partner, Katz, Marshall & Banks, LLP

    “In many of our cases, Jury Solutions’ EarlyJury attitude surveys have been critical to us in assessing the strengths and weaknesses of our claim before we file suit, and for making the most persuasive presentation possible to opposing counsel in settlement discussions and mediation. Reviewing the unbiased view of individuals from the community, selected by an experienced jury consultant, has truly been a valuable tool for case assessment, settlement discussions, and litigation strategy in our most difficult cases. In addition, Carolyn Koch is a pleasure to work with and brings a unique level of knowledge and experience to each project. I cannot recommend Carolyn and Jury Solutions highly enough.”
