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. Your name and contact information will be kept confidential and will not be given or sold to any third party. 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.
If you have any questions, please contact our Focus Group Coordinator, Brooke Holden, at 843-995-6073.
Derrick Law Firm Injury Lawyers is looking for individuals in across the state of South Carolina who would like to participate in a focus group and give us their opinions on a broad range of issues as well as on the specifics of our cases. We will hold focus groups during the evening hours of approximately 5:30pm-9:30pm, Monday through Thursday, as well as some Saturdays, from approximately 8:30am-5pm.
Week night focus group participants will be paid $100 for their time while Saturday focus group participants will be paid $200.
This will not be an ongoing responsibility, but a one-time event, unless you wish to participate again in the future after all of the participants who have signed up have had an opportunity to serve.
Food and beverage will be provided during each session.
Each person that completes the initial survey will be contacted to make sure they are available for a specific night or a specific day.
There is no need to complete the survey again as all previous information has been saved.
Participants that are returning will be scheduled as alternates for the events.
In the event all juror participants arrive, alternates receive $40. In the event all juror participants do not arrive, alternates may be selected to serve as a juror participant and receive $100.
