Pandering to a Jury

Those of you who routinely follow our blog will hopefully know where this article is going from its very title. A colleague recently reported that his jury didn't care much for a certain expert's patriotic tie and his "12″ button, referring to the Seattle Seahawks' 12th man, it's supposedly loud fan base. While I would consider myself both patriotic and a huge football fan, I wouldn't normally parade that in front of my jury. Let's face it-we plaintiff attorneys have no credibility before jurors, and we have to work hard to earn that trust for ourselves and for our clients. Famed up-and-coming trial lawyer Nick Rowley of California states as much during voir dire (jury selection), acknowledging that any amount we ask for for our clients is likely to be met with skepticism until we have demonstrated the injury and loss with convincing proof.
