How many times may I participate in a focus group?

Each person who indicates a desire to participate and completes a survey will be allowed to do so. This is a one-time commitment but there may be future opportunities depending on whether there is a need for returning participants. 

If all juror participants are able to serve when a focus group is ready to begin, alternates who are dismissed will receive $40 each.  In the event one or more jurors are not able to serve, alternates may be selected to serve as jurors and will instead receive $100 (or $200 if the focus group is a full-day event) for their service.

Will participating in a focus group at the Derrick Law Firm increase my chances of being called for jury duty?

No, it will not increase your chances of being called for jury duty. Our focus group events are a service we provide for clients and are completely separate from civil and criminal jury trials held by the state of South Carolina. 

Can my spouse, relative, or friend be in the same focus group as me?

Yes, you may participate with a spouse, relative, or friend if that makes attending a focus group feasible for you.  However, we will try to place you in separate deliberation groups to capture your independent opinions.
