WHERE WE START
High-profile cases don’t have to meet the ranks of O.J. and Casey Anthony to merit a broad survey of the population. Community Attitude Surveys (CAS) are best for cases involving well-known figures, significant media attention, or subject matters that dominate popular culture. Whether mounting a Change of Venue motion or simply taking the community’s temperature, this research can be invaluable in gaining a solid understanding of the local attitudes.
WHAT WE DO
Utilizing established polling techniques, we deliver an artfully designed research study that is careful not to “push” the respondents in a particular direction. These results are analyzed and presented in a form that can be testified to in court for a COV motion. Beyond simply establishing bias, we also use this tool as an opportunity to gather critical data that is helpful during trial strategy and jury selection.
HOW YOU BENEFIT
Understanding how a community views a case is a significant step in developing the most effective strategy. In some cases, it would be dangerous to proceed without it.
