We've done our best to provide everything you need to know about eJury right here at your fingertips. Nevertheless, we recognize that for all of the convenience online operations provide, sometimes you just can't beat the telephone. Call us toll free at 1-800-590-3542, and we'll be glad to speak with you, guide you through the process, and answer any questions.
eJury is much like a traditional mock jury or focus group except that the jurors (or eJurors) participate via the Internet. The convenience of online participation allows for a larger panel on each case, giving the attorney the type of feedback normally associated with large focus group research, but without the traditionally high cost.
Imagine the knowledge you gain when you ask 50 people for their opinions about your case. What you do with your results is up to you, but you might consider...
Your Case Submission will be "venue specific." We have a national database of registered eJurors and can put a sufficiently large panel together in any major metropolitan area of the country.

For cases pending in less populated areas, please Contact Us to discuss other panel possibilities. In many instances we have been able to combine surrounding counties with less population in order to create a large enough panel with similar demographics.
After a case has been posted, we believe it would present an obvious conflict of interest to post the same case again for an opposing attorney. That is why we require real names of the parties during the intake process and check all new cases for possible conflicts of interest. If a conflict is present, it is our policy to respond to the new inquiry by simply stating: "eJury is unable to accept your submission due to a conflict of interest."
Please keep in mind that due to the ever-changing trial dockets of our customers, we are unable to reserve spots or places for case submission. All cases are posted on a "first come, first served" basis.
We understand the importance of keeping an attorney’s mental impressions, opinions, conclusions, and legal theories privileged and confidential. In addition, we recognize that the attorney-client relationship is built upon the trust of knowing that certain confidences will not be disclosed to others.
eJury, by and through its officers, directors, and employees, will treat the following information as confidential, and will not, directly or indirectly, disclose the following information, or any part thereof, to any person or entity other than the party for whom this Confidentiality Policy is made:
Based upon the very nature of the services of eJury, certain information that is submitted by the attorney must be disclosed to those persons registered as “eJurors.” The party for whom this Confidentiality Policy is made understands that the information to be disclosed in this fashion is the Case Submission, consisting of the facts, jury questions, and personal questions submitted by the attorney to eJury. Each person registered as an eJuror has completed an oath swearing and affirming that he/she will not knowingly disclose, or permit to be disclosed, any information learned or obtained from eJury to any attorney, paralegal, legal assistant, law firm, insurance adjuster, insurance company, or anyone associated with an attorney, paralegal, legal assistant, law firm, insurance adjuster, or insurance company, except through the answering of case questions directly on the eJury website.
The following case submission provides a good example of an automobile collision case. This submission was 5 pages long with 5 jury questions and 5 personal questions.Case No. 0031 - Day Care Crash
The submission below, a medical malpractice case, is slightly longer than our suggested maximum of 5 single-spaced pages (the facts below were 7 pages in length). The submitting attorney chose to include an introductory section entitled "General Background" (shorter cases usually just begin with "Facts from the Plaintiff's Perspective" followed by "Facts from the Defendant's Perspective"). This submission also includes 2 images the submitting attorney used for illustration.Case No. 0062 - Lost Stent
Obviously, each case is different and presentation styles will vary from attorney to attorney. Feel free to e-mail us here if you would like to receive a sample case in Microsoft Word format via reply e-mail. This will allow you to simply begin cutting and pasting with your own facts and questions. Please type "Send Sample Case" in the subject line and include in your email a brief description of the type of case your involved in (e.g. "I have a wrongful death case involving multi-car collision on a highway").
