Where will the focus groups be held?
Derrick Law Firm Injury Lawyers will host focus groups in to-be-determined locations across the state of South Carolina and at three of our office locations (Conway, Myrtle Beach, North Charleston). We will host focus groups in counties as cases arise.
How old must participants be to join a focus group?
Participants must be at least 18 years of age to participate in a focus group.
How long does the survey to participate take to complete?
This survey is approximately 100 questions (depending on responses) and takes an average of 20 minutes to complete. We will ask you about your background and your opinions on different topics. We will keep your responses confidential and will not share or sell your information. Please do not fill out this form more than once.
Why does the survey to participate ask questions about my background and my beliefs?
We use the information gathered in surveys to learn more about people with different backgrounds and life experiences for jury research. This allows us to see what similar jurors may believe if selected for a jury.
How many times may I participate in a focus group?
Each person who indicates a desire to participate will be allowed to do so. There may be future opportunities to participate again depending on the number of people who sign up.
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?
No. Since that would not be allowed to occur in a real jury, we will not allow it to occur in focus groups. We will be pairing individuals from the preliminary survey sent to each participant so that we will have a broad range of opinions and a diverse group of participants.
