"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

"Another monumental contributor to our cause was Jan Spaeth of Advanced Jury Research, Inc., who helped us in pre-trial research as well as guiding us with jury selection. Jan and her company could not have been more responsive to our needs or helpful to our outcome, and we would recommend her services to any attorney on any case. The ability to identify potential problem jurors is a prerequisite to success, and one will not find anyone more accomplished at that than Jan Spaeth." PORAC Law Enforcement News - Feature Article
