Manchester & Associates concentrate on using science as well as the psychology of decision making in defending our cases, even the non-scientific ones. our team are constantly training, learning, and reading up on the psychology of decision making, which is crucial for earning a sympathetic jury and favorable rulings.
What matters is the people you are trying to convince understand you; you have to present things in a way juries understand.
That is where the study of the psychology of decision making and psychology of influence comes into play. So not only are we learning the law, keeping up with the law, plus keeping up on the relevant science involved in different types of criminal cases, we are constantly updating our knowledge.
