Attorneys face a dilemma when they present information to an audience. The
dilemma is that the audience cannot give them feedback on how they are doing
until it is too late. Other performance-type jobs have instant feedback built
right in — actors, public speakers, athletes — so they always know exactly how
they are doing in real time. Courtroom rules, however, prohibit attorneys from
getting this real time feedback from the people who count the most — the
This book teaches attorneys how focus groups and mock trials can assist them
in filling that feedback void — that “black hole” or Bermuda Triangle.
Valuable, case-specific data can be generated to shape your presentation and
strategies in preparation for settlement conferences, mediation/arbitration,
voir dire and for the trial itself. Generating this valuable feedback ahead of
time gives attorneys that winning edge.
