Educating a jury of everyday people
A client of The Alta Group was engaged in litigation on behalf of a leasing company whose confidential sales and marketing database was compromised by a former employee. The defendant was likeable and argued that the leasing company was greedy and uncaring. The client needed an expert to help the jury understand the technical details of the case while fostering sympathy for the company that had been wronged.
Alta’s expert witness provided testimony in understandable language and worked with the client’s trial counsel to present the details in an orderly and friendly way. The expert presented the leasing company as the harmed party while providing clear details about the damages incurred. After only a short deliberation, the jury found in favor of the leasing company and awarded damages in the exact amount presented by Alta’s expert in the trial testimony.
