Experience truly is the “teacher of all things.” Jabari has tried over 300 civil cases, every one of them solo, while maintaining a high win ratio. Because of her extensive trial experience, she has developed a keen understanding of what theories, strategies, physical and testimonial evidence are effective and persuasive before a jury. She understands how a juror’s particular background shapes their view of the evidence and what it takes to motivate them to agree with her presentation of the case. As a Trial Attorney, Jabari has acquired the unique ability to captivate and persuade jury panels of diverse backgrounds and predispositions because she knows how to present the same evidence in a way that speaks to each juror.
Jabari has also become adept at understanding what motivates the opposing party involved in litigation, and it is not only money. This is an important element of litigation that is often overlooked. Having deposed hundreds of litigants, through face-to-face contact, she has learned to not only listen to the responses they provide, but to watch their manner of responding. She has learned that litigation is not just about extracting answers to questions, from parties and witnesses, but truly knowing how to obtain meaningful information. In order to do that, one must understand what truly motivates people in the litigation arena.
In addition to Jabari’s background in litigation, her experience as a Corporate Security Investigator has provided direct and extensive contact with corporate employees and potential litigants in often adversarial situations. This experience early on developed her ability to interact with others under uncomfortable situations, while maintaining the ability to obtain critical information necessary to both identifying and providing solutions for her clients.
