Transfer of Venue & Community SurveysOur consultants have been qualified as experts on research methodology and transfer of venue. We have prepared numerous reports and affidavits for transfer of venue motions in State and Federal courts throughout the country and testified at many hearings.

We  have conducted venue surveys ranging in size from 400 to 2,500 people in order  to assess whether there was significant bias in certain venues. In other cases we have evaluated the results and implications of surveys conducted by other researchers. We  have also offered testimony on juror attitudes, juror bias, juror decision making, and jury selection.

Some of the cases we have worked on include:

  •  In the Matter of Endoscopy Center and Associated Business and Coordinated Cases, District Court Clark County Nevada.
  • Charles Lucas v. American Optical Corporation, et al., Letcher Circuit Court, Kentucky
