"Our experience with AJR was outstanding on each of the matters we retained them on, not only for the efficiency and insight provided by the focus group process, but also for the help with our jury questionnaires and jury selection profile and process. We would not hesitate to recommend AJR for these functions, and would also note that AJR's basic insights into the case, itself, and how to best present it, have proven invaluable and quite helpful in presenting the case. Thanks!" Dennis Wilenchik, Esq., Wilenchik and Bartness, Phoenix, Arizona
"We used Advanced Jury Research to mock try a large commercial case we were defending in Arizona. Jan Spaeth and her team did an outstanding job in connection with all aspects of the mock trial and preparing a very thorough report. She was professional, reasonable, effective and an absolute pleasure to work with, and we look forward to using her again." Mark T. Davenport, Esq., Figari & Davenport, L.L.P., Dallas, Texas
