Juries in scientific cases face a difficult task. They must learn the language and principles of complex scientific disciplines. They must referee battles of apparently equally qualified experts and reach verdicts on issues science itself has sometimes not yet decided. For defendants, the prospect of submitting scientific controversies to lay juries is often frightening; a company or its product may hang in the balance.
The Becnel Law firm is a group of trial lawyers with years of experience in bringing proper science to the courtroom and teaching it to judges and juries. We focus on making scientific issues accessible and teaching juries how to decide them.
