I am a litigation consultant and strategist, owner and CEO of Shari Belitz Communications, LLC a company which provides mock trial, focus groups, and other litigation consulting services to lawyers and insurance industry professionals.
I am also founder of “The Psychology Methodology for Litigation Education” and its companion course EnPSYCHLAWpedia™ an educational platform which uses video and written materials to teach lawyers how to use social psychology to achieve favorable litigation outcomes, at settlement or trial.
Prior to my litigation consulting career, I was an insurance coverage attorney at a law firm and litigation manager in-house at AIG where I handled complex mass tort lawsuits for Fortune 500 insured clients. During my legal career, I took a leap of faith and pursued a dream I had always had which was studying forensic psychology, including advanced jury science and research at the graduate level.
My passion is the study of human behavior, cognitive biases, and decision making and its effects in litigation and at trial. I enjoy sharing my expertise on the intersection of law and psychology by advising and assisting clients. Some of the most rewarding experiences in litigation consulting is the time I spend researching, writing, and giving presentations educating lawyers how they can harness the power of psychology in litigation. I pride my presentations on being innovative, creative, and exciting.
Relationship building is a great passion of mine and connecting with people and cultivating relationships is truly what inspires the work I do. I am committed to working with clients to build relationships, develop new business and aggrandize existing business.
