Abstract:

Five hundred seventy-four jurors (206 civil and 368 criminal) rated Plaintiff and Defense attorneys on aspects of the attorneys and their performance—opening statements, evidence presentation, closing statements, courtroom demeanor, sincerity, competence, and preparedness—that may be related to verdicts. First, positive perceptions of Plaintiff attorneys’ evidence presentation predicted favorable outcomes for the Plaintiff attorneys. Second, positive perceptions of the attorneys’ preparedness predicted favorable outcomes for both attorneys. Third, Defense attorneys whose opening statements were perceived more favorably were less likely to win their case. Finally, perceptions of Plaintiff attorneys’ sincerity and courtroom demeanor were negatively related to favorable verdicts.
