Testimonials

Working with Dr. Rothschild has been key to my achieving great outcomes for my clients: at verdict and settlement. Her assistance with witness preparation, jury selection procedures, ability to evaluate jurors, aid with voir dire and trial strategy has enhanced my ability to be effective during jury selections and in presenting my case. Judy is a team player; put simply, she’s great!

- Mark T. Quigley, Esq., Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP.

Dr. Rothschild has been a critical part of my trial team in several difficult cases. Judy’s skills are absolutely essential in trial prep and during trial. Her input guards against potential blind spots. She is terrific at shifting through a large volume of information and honing in on what is important. Her education and range of experiences enables her to identify both dangers and advantages that we as trial lawyers may not always see. Case analysis, witness preparation, in court assistance with jury selection—she does it all. She is a delight to work with if I could hire her in every case, I would.

“In short, Dr. Rothschild is great! I’ve worked with Judy on a wide variety of cases, from “small” to very “large” cases. Her insights and input about jurors and jury selection, mock juror research, witness prep, graphics, openings and closings have been instrumental in helping me obtain several multi-million dollar verdicts.”

“Judy was our jury consultant on a complex commercial real estate dispute. She conducted a “mock jury” process that helped us shape our case themes and presentation in a more compelling way. Based upon her analytical ability and insight, I would welcome the opportunity to work with her again.”

“Dr. Judy Rothschild is the best of the best. Judy’s skills as trial/jury consultant, sociologist, mediator, and specialist in communication have helped my firm successfully resolve cases. She is effective, efficient, respects your schedule, needs and budget and is a pleasure to work with.

As an active trial lawyer and as the 2013 President of Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC), I value her insights and skills. A frequent CAOC speaker and trainer, she has also volunteered her time to help CAOC learn about its membership needs and interests. Her commitment to helping plaintiffs and the plaintiff’s bar in personal injury litigation enhances my respect for her and the assistance she provides.”

- Brian Kabateck, Kabateck Brown Kellner LLP

“After working with Judy several times, I’ve come to call her my “Jury Consultant Extraordinaire.” When I’ve been lost in the weeds on complex cases, she has helped me find the key themes and the big picture that resonate with juries and judges alike. This is no easy task because I tend to call her much later than would be advisable. Thank goodness she is such a quick study. Judy has also helped me work with difficult witnesses to present them in their best light. Most important, her input with voir dire and jury selection has helped me select juries that optimize my clients’ chances. Notably, we settled one case very favorably immediately after the jury selection process was completed when the judge warned opposing counsel that he was taking a huge risk with the jury that had been empanelled. I strongly believe that Judy has greatly enhanced my clients’ outcomes and highly recommend her — unless you’re on the other side of a case from me.”
