Dr. Barbara Hillmer, Senior Consultant at Litigation Insights, will be giving a presentation at the Defense Research Institute’s Toxic Torts and Environmental Law Seminar, entitled “Stories, Themes & Trial Graphics: Maximizing the Likelihood of a Defense Verdict.” The presentation is scheduled for Thursday, February 20, 2014 at 4:05 p.m. at the Marriott in New Orleans, LA.
Dr. Hillmer’s presentation will detail the work of litigation consultants and how to effectively use trail themes and graphics to present evidence as a story that jurors will understand, remember, and use during their deliberations.
“From toxic torts to product liability cases, stories, themes, and trial graphics are among the most effective tools in a defense attorney’s arsenal,” said Dr. Hilmer. “Combining memorable case themes and persuasive imagery with a compelling, easy-to-understand narrative is a sure-fire way to influence juries to your side and increase the likelihood of winning your case.”
Dr. Hillmer has more than 20 years of experience conducting jury research and working with professionals across the United States to effectively communicate their messages. She has spoken at numerous conferences and published several articles in professional publications. Janell M. Pepper of 3M Company in St. Paul, MN will be co-presenting with Dr. Hillmer and Steven W.
