Our goal is to provide quality, cost-effective legal research using scientific and statistical models. Although many of our models use statistically generated analysis, the written report is simple and clear. For instance, number counts, percentages, bar graphs, histograms or pie charts can often answer complicated questions. However, SLS also employs correlational designs, statistical regression or factor analysis when appropriate. Of course, all qualitative data is subject to quantitative evaluation.
How it works:
The legal research process begins with the identification of specific questions of concern. Next, is the construction of a brief survey that highlights case facts and dynamics. Then the survey undergoes validation and reliability tests. The completed survey is now ready for distribution. Segmented and proprietary jury pools, control for AGE, SEX, RACE, and various SES variables. This process has wide application, for example, breach of contract, product liability, medical negligence, personal injury, etc. If you have a legal question, more than likely, a predictive model is available to test assumptions or outcome.
What makes SLS unique?
First, SLS concentrates on empirically developing an accurate survey that conceptually represents all the key points of your case.
Second, segmented demographic and personality-typed pools are available to review case dynamics and suggest relevant conceptual findings.
Third, since SLS controls the entire process, ipsative Delphi Groups are feasible; which means legal counsel has an opportunity to modify, correct or clarify case facts and send out a modified survey to the same group of participants. This allows the relative assessment of new information.
