Suzanne L. Davis is a Social Psychologist and Litigation/Trial Consultant in the United States, and she has studied the psychology of jury decision-making for nearly twenty years. Suzanne draws on her scientific background and her years of experience to quickly identify the challenges faced by her clients and to provide innovative and practical strategies for addressing those challenges.
Suzanne’s expertise goes well beyond jury decision-making and encompasses the entire range of litigation consulting for jury- or bench trials: Pre-trial research and theme testing, core message analysis, opening and closing statement analysis, communicating to persuade, witness preparation, and jury selection (in the US). Her specialty is "at-trial consulting," in which she attends trial and provides strategies that counsel can implement right now to stay “on message” and communicate effectively with the trier of fact.
Earlier in her career, Suzanne was an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Northern Iowa, where she conducted research on the psychology of jury decision-making, jurors’ perceptions of child witnesses, and taught Introduction to Psychology, Social Psychology, and Psychology and Law.
Suzanne is also a published author. Her nonfiction title, 10 Interesting Things About Human Behavior, draws directly from her experiences as a litigation consultant.
