Harry Plotkin is a nationally-renowned jury consultant and leading voice in the field of juror decision-making, psychology, and persuasion. When many of the best trial lawyers in California (or nationally) go to trial, they call Harry. He has helped trial lawyers win some of the biggest and most difficult verdicts in over a thousand civil trials by selecting juries in court, focus grouping cases, and shaping the trial themes and opening statements that persuade jurors to deliver justice for the good side.
Mr. Plotkin now works exclusively for plaintiffs in injury and employment cases. In the past 6 six years alone, he has selected the jury in 38 different eight-figure verdicts, which include trials involving claims of product defect, defamation, auto negligence, failure to prevent child abuse, medical malpractice, wrongful death, wrongful termination, trip-and-fall, dangerous condition of public property, wrongful arrest, insurance bad faith, and traumatic brain injury, among many others.
As a loyal partner of trial lawyers, he has worked with 21 recipients of CAALA’s trial lawyer of the year award and has selected over a dozen juries that resulted in his client winning trial lawyer of the year awards in CAALA, OCTLA, and CASD since 2014.
