Notes from a Juror

Kelley | Uustal Founding Partner John Uustal has spent decades trying cases in front of a jury. But up until a few months ago, he’d never been a juror himself. His recent experience serving on a jury taught him how a legal case looks from the other side of the courtroom. John shared his insights with Attorneys Information Exchange Group’s quarterly magazine, AIEGVoice. In an article titled “Notes from a Juror”,  John explains how being part of a jury has altered his approach as a trial lawyer, and what other attorneys can do to better present their cases and appeal to juries.

John Uustal is one of America’s premier trial lawyers, and is well-known for standing up to powerful corporations. He leads by example, and encourages our firm to share our knowledge and experience to help other attorneys in their fight to protect the victims of corporate misconduct.
