As a highly respected body language analyst and communication expert, Dr. Lillian Glass' unique skills are invaluable to any attorney, assisting as a jury consultant, helping with jury selection, and facilitating a positive transformation of clients during witness preparation.
Online PR News – 29-September-2010 – – A leader in the field of body language analysis and communications, Dr. Lillian Glass offers specialized body language services for attorneys, primarily centered on jury consulting, jury selection, and witness preparation. Having trained top Academy Award winning Hollywood actors, politicians, world leaders, and sports figures to enhance their communication skills and patterns over the years, Dr Glass now brings her insights to the legal field.
While an attorney is the expert on facts and evidence, Dr. Glass helps with the elements of the trial that remain unspoken—and perceptions drawn from the nonverbal communication in a courtroom, whether it is during jury selection or the way witnesses carry themselves—that can make all the difference.
“Studies prove time and again that what is not said in a courtroom is critical. Helping attorneys ‘read’ potential jurors, analyze jury perception, and evaluate and correct witness demeanor has a much greater bearing on outcomes than many realize,” points out Dr. Glass.
Dr. Lillian Glass provides the following body language services for attorneys:
This service involves working with the attorney to evaluate jury perceptions about their case based on the nonverbal cues they display. This evaluation can be critical for amending the course of the trial. As a jury consultant Dr. Glass examines all four codes of communication by intensively what is said and how it is said.
“I don’t simply look at body language and facial expressions. With three decades of experience and research for my publications, I can help attorneys quickly sift out who is lying and who is telling the truth. In essence, this service gives attorneys a secret weapon, a winning edge over their opposition,” states Dr. Glass.
Many attorneys will attest that jury selection is critical to positive outcomes in the courtroom. Based on her internationally acclaimed book, I Know What You're Thinking, Reading The Four Codes of Reading People to Improve Your Life, Dr. Glass helps attorneys determine the character, personality traits, and biases of potential jurors during voir dire.
Attorneys are adept at preparing their witnesses for trial—addressing potential questions, alerting them to the rules of conduct, and so on. But, Dr. Glass provides witness preparation services to attorneys that are a major adjunct to any case, making a significant difference by increasing the witness’s 'likeability' with the jury.
“Whether you like it or not, studies have repeatedly shown that the way a person looks and speaks can make a difference in terms of how the jury perceives them. By helping your client become compelling to a judge and jury, I can help you make sure that your client is perceived in a positive light. This will inevitably have a favorable impact on the financial outcome of your case,” states Dr. Glass.
These body language services for attorneys can have a dramatic impact in the arena of witness preparation. A dramatic example was during an initial mock trial when the client was perceived as 'unlikeable.' After witness preparation services with Dr. Glass, the client was more favorably perceived and won a $33 million jury verdict.
