SMS continues to provide mock jury services to the legal industry in Hawaii. Over the past 15 years SMS has improved its skills and now provides four- and eight-hour mock jury sessions. These sessions are facilitated by an SMS “Judge”, or in some cases, SMS retains a retired judge to moderate the jury. SMS works with all the leading legal firms in Hawaii in this area.
SMS also provides expert witness work in areas such as brand infringement, employee bias cases, and other legal disputes. SMS works with the legal teams by undertaking the research or statistical analysis that’s needed to provide a sound basis for the expert witness work. The courts have accepted both Mr. James E. Dannemiller and Mr. Hersh Singer as experts.
SMS did a great job in leading Hawai‘i Tourism Authority’s evaluation development process…including identifying input, output and outcome measures to track progress toward HTA’s strategic goals. SMS also provided steps to guide us in integrating the evaluation process into our overall operations and planning. Our staff was actively engaged in the process and tracking the measures will ensure a focus on driving towards outcomes.
