Lynn Fahey is a Senior Trial Consultant with JuryScope and has contributed to over 100 cases in her time with the group.

At a high level, Dr. Fahey’s consulting practice includes pre-trial research (such as mock trials and focus groups), trial preparation (such as witness preparation, opining on opening statements, and evaluating trial graphics), jury selection, and other larger data projects (including large scale opinion surveys and analyzing JuryScope’s 25+ years of juror data).

Dr. Fahey designs bespoke research studies to get the best data for each unique case she works on. In addition to traditional mock trials and focus groups, Dr. Fahey has designed numerous non-traditional studies, including multi-group multi-city studies for venue comparison, fully online mock trials and arbitrations, multi-panel focus groups with each group discussing a different substantive area of the case, large scale opinion surveys, and mock voir dire studies.

In addition to pre-trial research, Dr. Fahey works with clients to translate complex arguments into easy-to-understand stories for any jury. Her work in this area includes: providing feedback on opening statements, working with counsel throughout trial to compose a cogent and convincing closing argument, preparing witnesses for trial, and opining on graphics. Dr. Fahey is halfway to her “EGOT of witness prep”, having prepared both an Emmy and an Oscar winner for trial.

Dr. Fahey regularly teaches CLEs, makes presentations and authors publications on juror perceptions and bias.

Dr. Fahey earned her Master’s degree in Sociology and a Ph.D. in Sociology from Rice University and graduated with honors from Texas A&M University Corpus Christi with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. In addition to her consulting work with JuryScope, Dr. Fahey is an adjunct professor teaching Sociology and Criminology at Mount Saint Mary’s University in Los Angeles. Dr. Fahey is based in California but spends a great deal of her personal time in Texas.
