Peter Hecht, Executive VP of Sales Magna Legal Services

Friends of Magna LS,

Allow me to introduce you to Jury Evaluator! It’s not a survey, mock trial or a traditional focus group. It’s a new patent pending program that is daring you to think differently about how you value your cases. It’s the same Magna thinking innovation you’ve known and loved for 9 years, with a slightly different aim. Shall I explain?

Well, recently, a client challenged us to help them accurately predict what value jurors would put on their case without spending a ton of money. We decided to take on the challenge. As we began the process, we noticed that most of the current tools relied on old data, different fact patterns, unrelated venues and only BIG money solutions addressed the current media climate. So, we knew we needed something fresh.

When we started out, we wanted to leverage jury research with big data analysis to create a predictive model. The combined approach allowed us to create a realtime jury deliberation simulator that is case specific and super accurate. And the great news is, our entry level fee starts at $3,500!

Anyway, it’s been a huge success and we are hoping to change the way clients value cases at every stage of litigation.

With that, here’s what else is going on at Magna…
