Inter-State Investigative Services excels at assisting defense counsel with selecting the best jury possible. We focus on helping the attorney understand each potential juror’s mindset. To do this effectively, a large range of factors is examined. Based on the juror’s background, experiences, and opinions, we try to help counsel understand how the juror views the world, and how he or she will view the evidence, arguments, and issues in the case.
We are seasoned at developing background and demographic information but believe they are only the first step in understanding a juror’s mindset. Therefor, we are also available to run background checks on potential jurors as well as for help developing questions to ask during voir dire to help ferret out any prejudices and/or biases. Information gathered during our investigation can be helpful for attorneys to use with their perfunctory challenges.
MINIMIZING THE CHANCE OF ROGUE JURORS
As uncommon as they are, rogue jurors nonetheless pose a real problem for the veracity of the jury system. Inter-State is proud to help defense attorneys weed out any rogue juror who is trying to tip the scales of justice. This is especially important in southern Arizona where the influence of Mexican cartels is especially pronounced and pernicious. We are ever vigilant against juror misconduct and available to assist defense teams who have any concerns about a potential or current jury.
MONITORING JUROR BEHAVIOR DURING TRIAL
The prohibition against blogging or posting information about a case is an important one, and something we can help enforce. By monitoring social media and the overall digital landscape, we can help defense attorneys and the court ensure the jurors in their case are not violating court rules against communications. There are additional ways Inter-State Investigative Services can help defense attorneys with the best jury selection and maintenance.
