Taylor Porter Partner Amy Groves Lowe teamed up with attorney Dean Sutherland, of Jeansonne & Remondet, to present "Anatomy of a Jury Trial” at the Louisiana State Bar Association's 2017 VooDoo CLE Seminar, held Oct. 27 at the Hyatt Centric French Quarter Hotel in New Orleans.
Lowe and Sutherland discussed how jurors think, building a conceptual framework for jurors of what is important to your case, identifying attitudes, beliefs and biases, and using reciprocity to gain information and increase the attorney’s “likeability” with jurors.
Practicing law since 1997, Lowe has a litigation practice in various areas of law, including insurance defense, labor and employment, education law and appellate practice. In addition to her litigation experience, she has a Master of Arts in Psychology (LSU, 1994). She has combined her expertise in these two areas by being frequently utilized as a jury consultant, assisting other litigators in jury selection, pre-trial research, and statistical analysis and serving as a litigation consultant in expert and lay witness preparation. In addition, she has conducted numerous CLEs and seminars on the issue of jury selection and effective and ethical presentation to juries.
Lowe ranks among Best Lawyers in America (peer-voted) in Education Law for her work representing universities and high schools in labor and employment issues and insurance defense. She also acts as coverage counsel to numerous insurers in cases filed in Louisiana state and federal courts and defends several state boards.
Lowe was named to Baton Rouge Business Report’s “Top 40 Under 40” for her successes in her practice and her commitment to the professional and community scene in Baton Rouge. She is an alumnus of the Baton Rouge Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Baton Rouge class.
