The Art of Strategy
Those who are victorious plan effectively and change decisively. They are like a great river that maintains its course but adjusts its flow... they have form but are formless. They are skilled in both planning and adapting and need not fear the results of a thousand battles; for they win in advance, defeating those that have already lost.
- Sun Tzu 100 B.C.

through background checks and social media probes which will provide you with a better understanding
of the jury’s potential bias. Backgrounds can include possible social economic status, voting history, and
more. During trial we can monitor jurors social media usage for potential deliberation violations or
improper communications. After the trial, we monitor juror’s opinions and can, upon request, perform
after-trial surveys and polling in preparation for post-trial practice.
