Post-trial interviews are not conducted for curiosity’s sake. They are a useful tool that can help to reshape arguments for future cases or appeals. Rudolph Trial Consulting uses post-trial interviews to provide valuable feedback to clients. Among the issues they highlight are:
- Credibility of expert witnesses,
- Jurors’ perceptions of the plaintiff and defendant,
- Presentation style and how it was perceived,
- Overall what drove deliberations.
Jurors are more likely to be candid and willing to participate if a professional such as Alexandra Rudolph handles the research. Phone interviews are the norm, allowing for a conversational style.
