“You don’t want to find out what 8 people think about your case on the first day of trial.”
— Paul Scoptur

What Is Trial Consulting?

Trial consulting allows you to test run your case theories, witnesses, and damages model. It lets you design and create an effective litigation strategy and receive feedback that’s designed to specifically improve every aspect of your case. An experienced consultant will be able to help you improve every aspect of litigation from initial presentation, evidence presentation, initial pleadings, discovery, settlement negotiations, and more.

We tailor our services to the exact needs of your firm, law group, and particular case and client. No two consultations look alike.

Focus Groups

Focus groups and case planning are both critical components of successful litigation. Without a strong case and litigation plan, you will find it difficult to stay on track and present your case and all facts as efficiently and impactful as possible within the courtroom. Proper litigation preparation allows you to stay on top of your game at all times and perform to the best of your capabilities even if unforeseen developments occur during trial.

Focus groups will help highlight the weak points of your case to give you the power to reframe the way you present facts. A focus group can help you see situations from new angles and make you aware of how the opposition may attempt to throw you off during trial. Focus groups are more affordable than many legal professionals realize and make a meaningful difference in the outcome of complex cases.

Trial consulting services are those offered by a legal agency or group that are aimed to assist trial lawyers, law firms, and other legal professionals who are looking to maximize their time spent in the courtroom and present their case with the strength it needs to succeed. At Wishart Brain & Spine Law, our Vancouver trial consulting lawyers are proud to offer litigation consulting services to legal professionals and other attorneys in Vancouver, across Canada, and in the U.S. who are looking to bring forward the strongest case possible.
