Trial Consulting for Death Penalty Cases
NJP consultants have been working with defense teams on capital cases since our inception. In the late 1970s we sponsored a major research project on the biasing effects of the death-qualification process. Results of this study were relied upon by the California Supreme Court in the landmark case of Hovey v. Superior Court, 28 Cal. 3d 1 (1980) and by federal courts in subsequent cases. Over the past 35 years we have consulted on hundreds of trials where the defendant was facing a sentence of death, in venues across the country. We have had success in helping trial teams obtain State and Federal funds for our services and maintain a list of venues where we have been appointed.
