CONNECTING WITH A JURY
Jurors are human beings. As a trial attorney, it is essential to remember that jurors are always watching you -- whether in the courtroom, in the hallway outside the courtroom, or the elevator. Throughout the trial, jurors make judgments on you, your client, and your case. Jurors who are bored or disrespected are not listening. If they are not listening, they will unlikely side with your client. A lawyer who is mindful of the above guidelines and engages with jurors will connect with them and increase the chances of success for their clients.
