"Voir Dire and Jury Selection: Learn from the Experts"



Please join us for this lively presentation by Manuel Dobrinsky, Bill Geraghty, and Melissa Pigott, Ph.D. on voir dire and jury selection in state court civil litigation. Drawing upon their years of experience selecting juries throughout the country, this presentation will offer unique insight into jury selection from three different perspectives. Mr. Dobrinsky, Past President of the Miami-Dade Justice Association, will discuss the Plaintiff's approach to voir dire, while Mr. Geraghty, who has defended tobacco companies in numerous Engle progeny trials, will explain the Defense's strategy. Dr. Pigott will provide an independent analysis from a psychologist's and jury consultant's viewpoint. Finally, the attorneys will conduct mock voir dire to demonstrate their strategies, while Dr. Pigott provides a critique. There will be time for questions from the audience.
