In Thinking Inside the Box: Jury Decision Making in a Personal Injury Case, Toni covers thedo's and don'ts of voir dire, teaches you how to profile your own jury, details juror personalities and demographic variables, and instills some finer points that will polish your performance at trial.
I am extremely happy to have Toni on our website! I am proud to say that we worked together (sorf of) on a medical malpractice case a few years back. At the time I was working at a local medical malpractice defense firm and I was in my second year of law school and working as a legal assistant. Toni helped our firm pick a jury in a major case that I will never forget. Since I never practiced law, it was as close to the courtroom as I ever got.
Since then Toni has skyrocketed into working on major cases. In 2007 Toni selected the jury and advised counsel for Lucent Technologies during a trial against Microsoft over the MP3 patent - the $1.5 billion dollars in damages represents the largest patent law verdict in world history. A little later in 2007 she worked on the second Lucent v. Microsoft trial with a team from Kirkland and Ellis which resulted in a $367.4 million verdict. She has also served as a commentator for Court TV, CNN, FOX, MSNBC and numerous local TV and radio shows, and her cases have been featured on Dateline, 48 hours, Forensic files, ABC Prime Time, Wolf Blitzer and in various other news articles and programs.
