Reviews

"Posey and Wrightsman have produced an essential book for anyone interested in the fast-growing but still largely unknown field of trial consulting. The book discusses the history of the field, who trial consultants are and how they are trained, what trial consultants do, and the ethical issues involved. Anyone interested in the legal system and the trial process will find this book to be a fascinating state-of-the-art glimpse into the world of the jury, the attorneys, and the people to whom the attorneys turn in order to refine their cases. From pretrial motions, to the trial itself, and into the jury room, this book uses both interesting case examples as well as solid psychological research to take the reader behind the scenes of the trial process."--Solomon M. Fulero, Ph.D., J.D., Professor of Psychology, Sinclair College, Past President, American Psychology-Law Society, Dayton, Ohio "This excellent work is about far more than trial consulting. While Drs. Posey and Wrightsman take an honest look at the trial consulting profession, they also manage to educate litigators and researchers alike about current jury decision-making trends. An important read for anyone working as or with a trial consultant."--Karen Lisko, Ph.D., Senior Litigation Consultant, Persuasion Strategies, Past President of the American Society of Trial Consultants, Denver, Colorado "This book is long overdue. With the field of trial consulting still growing, Drs. Posey and Wrightsman attempt the difficult task of providing a balanced review of who litigation consultants are, what services they provide, and how their services work collaboratively with trial attorneys to benefit their clients and the legal process. This informative book provides an introduction to trial consulting by firmly grounding the field both in the social science literature and real-world applications. Additionally, the authors' discussion of many case-specific examples provides insight into the trial consultant's role with respect to a wide variety of cases for clients both large and small."--Merrie Jo Pitera, Ph.D., President, Litigation Insights, Inc., Overland Park, Kansas "Drs. Posey and Wrightsman hold our feet to the fire with cutting inquiries into ethics and effectiveness. In a field still defining itself, the authors' analysis will shape the debate about what is reasonable to expect from a trial consultant."--Lisa Dahl, President, Litigation Consultants, Inc., Lawrence, Kansas "Trial Consulting takes a comprehensive and provocative look at the field of trial consulting in the United States. In a book rich in data and details surrounding the most critical phases of trail practice, Posey and Wrightsman rip open the mystique surrounding this profession and raise some important issues as to the direction in which it should move."--Psychiatric Services "Posey and Wrightsman have produced an essential book for anyone interested in the fast-growing but still largely unknown field of trial consulting.
