OUR APPROACH

The JuryMapping team comes from the campaign world. In that industry, the most effective political campaigns recognize that individuals’ backgrounds, beliefs and experiences shape how receptive they will be to different arguments and candidates. In order to put the right messaging in front of the right voters, they have developed powerful statistical tools for identifying the likely biases of each voter based on that voter’s background & demographics.

At JuryMapping, we see many similarities between jury trials and elections. First, the people deciding the outcomes are the same. Second, the job of the opposing sides is to craft the most compelling arguments for their audience. In both cases it is therefore a major advantage to be able to accurately identify the personalities and biases of the audience.

Given these similarities, we built a product to let attorneys take advantage of the scientific approach that has become central to modern political campaigns to make voir dire both easier and more effective. 

OUR HISTORY

1975 – L2 founded as Labels & Lists, Inc.

Over forty years ago in the state of Washington, at a time when few saw the need for more sophisticated campaign tools, a community activist had an idea. Lourene Criddle, a volunteer for numerous candidate and issue campaigns in California and Washington, sensed the wave of changes that were about to break over the political landscape, and Labels & Lists, Inc. was born.

2011 – L2 is national leader in voter data

By 2011, Labels & Lists, Inc., now “L2, Inc.” had completed its national expansion and become the nation’s leading independent voter data and technology firm, serving thousands of political campaigns and consultants from the local to the national level. L2 provides data and technology to the leading broadcast and cable television companies in the U.S., the most prominent universities and news outlets as well as over 200 members of Congress. It is the non-partisan data and technology source of choice for much of the political industry.

2014 – L2 expands beyond politics

By 2014, L2 had expanded beyond its leading role in politics and had begun to extend its data expertise into commercial marketplaces. L2 now maintains its own highly-enhanced national commercial file containing over 240,000,000 records for individuals across the U.S. In addition, it houses over one billion regularly updated email address records, a national auto ownership file and the largest and most highly-curated file of telephone numbers in the country. With new divisions now offering a full email deployment service and peer-to-peer texting along with digital ad targeting for commercial purposes, L2 has become a player in the national commercial data marketplace as well.

2015 – JuryMapping founded

L2 founds JuryMapping in conjunction with Jason Powers, a veteran political campaigner, in order to bring the powerful analytical techniques and robust datasets from the political and commercial space to trial attorneys. Initially, JuryMapping focused on providing venue surveys and predictive modeling of juror bias to help clients prepare for voir dire.

2017 – JuryMapping launches self-service online platform

Responding to the needs of trial attorneys who had only minutes from when they learned the identities of potential jurors to research them, JuryMapping launched our self-service Jury Profile tool. By focusing on gathering data quickly and presenting it in an easily digestible format, JuryMapping makes meaningful juror research a viable option for any case.
