For years I have trained young lawyers on these principles, with excellent results
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 21, 2008
The art and science of selecting the best jury for a particular case can challenge even the most experienced attorney. Preparing and conducting jury selection creates stress, even for the most experienced litigator. Essentially, jury selection is the only time during a trial that an attorney can talk with prospective jurors and identify who to eliminate.
This particular area of trial practice and lack of easy to use tools to facilitate the process proved frustrating to Shaun Khojayan, a criminal defense attorney with law offices in San Diego and Beverly Hills. In response to the challenge of jury selection, Khojayan has introduced JurySelectionPro, a set of tools to help attorneys organize juror information without the hassle of convoluted notes and trying to recall challenges at key times.
"I grew weary of scrambling through illegible yellow pads and sticky notes for juror information," said Khojayan, "while also trying to create an effective jury selection. I wanted to make some sense out of this jury madness, lower my stress and keep my energy focused on my goals: to pick the best jury possible by increasing my challenges and making an effective record."
JurySelectionPro, which retails for $129, is a set of specially designed grids, moveable cards and a handy cribsheet of Cause and Batson caselaw to use to win such challenges. The tools make it easy for attorneys to track the juror information, raise challenges and visualize the jury as jurors are stricken. Khojayan, who has served as trial lawyer for the Federal Defenders of San Diego (complying a trial record of mainly acquittals and mistrials) and authored and argued appeals before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals (gaining reversals in many cases), also offers specific advice on Cause and Batson challenges that helps to quickly identify who your opponent may strike, allowing the user to raise Batson challenges to these eliminations.
"For years I have trained young lawyers on these principles, with excellent results," said Khoyjan. "I created JurySelectionPro because just knowing jury selection psychology is not enough to effectively select a jury."
