Is "jury" a scary word for a litigant? Return guest Ryan Chenevert of Fletcher, Roy & Chenevert, LLC joins Rebecca Wisbar to discuss how the prospect of going to jury trial influences the mediation process. Ryan shares how he uses focus groups as a way to assess the mindset of an average citizen plus what a client can learn from observing a focus group assess a case. The conversation closes by considering how parties can use the mediator to keep the process working smoothly and productively.
