Every case has different needs, and Keene Trial Consulting is prepared to address them. What is critical support for one case is unnecessary expense for another; our experience allows us to tailor an effective, financially appropriate scope of services for your case.

The ideal time to start a consultation is early in the development of the case, before discovery is closed and prior to key depositions. It is also fairly common for us to get involved as discovery is winding down, and trial decisions are being fine-tuned. We work with both scenarios and in many different capacities

We have worked with countless US citizen witnesses, as well as witnesses from 19 foreign countries. Some witnesses worry that preparation with a consultant means that they are going to be told to say things that they don’t believe, or testify to something other than the truth. This has never been more true than when preparing witnesses from other cultures. Keene Trial Consulting subscribes to the Code of Ethics of the American Society of Trial Consultants, and we do not participate in such efforts. Witness preparation is an educational process, teaching how to communicate effectively, how to testify clearly and accurately, how to maintain their composure in a stressful setting, and how to credibly integrate the over-arching case themes into their testimony.
