Boyd Patterson created JuryStar, which is a jury selection app based upon 10 years of actual courtroom litigation.
JuryStar was nominated as a 2012 Best Trial Prep iPad App by The National Law Journal. JuryStar received additional national recognition from The American Lawyer magazine, which listed JuryStar as the only jury selection app in its article of legal apps “that really deliver,” providing: “Many apps have tried to facilitate the jury selection process—and most would quickly be found guilty of not helping much. But JuryStar bucks the trend with a user interface and features more in line with the way trial attorneys choose a panel.” The American Lawyer, October 2012.
Litigatortechnology.com also has an exclusive arrangement with the nation’s number one jury consulting firm, DecisionQuest. Through the Web Jury Consulting service on the litigatortechnology.com website, every litigator in the country can access the nation’s best jury consultants at a fraction of the cost.

And his latest venture is JuryStar.
