"Voir dire is the one place in a trial where you can get close to asking the jurors to put themselves in the position of the client. In the context of exploring a juror's personal views or bias, it is permissible to ask questions like, 'Would you sue if your own child were killed by a drunk driver?' Such questions, sometimes called reflective questions, ask the jurors to reflect on their attitudes, experiences, and beliefs that may be in common or in conflict with the client's."
-Rick Friedman, The Way of the Trial Lawyer
"Fight for the right to a mini-opening statement because it stirs the coals of existing bias in jurors enough to get them talking about it, so you can have a brutally honest discussion about what it means to be a fair- and neutral-minded juror for all parties."
-Nicholas Rowley, Courtney Rowley, and Wendy Saxon, Voir Dire and Opening Statement
"If you have non-negotiable policies for settlement of the case, they should be fully disclosed to the mediator and defense before the mediation takes place."
-Paul Luvera and Lita Barnett Luvera, Luvera on Advocacy
