Expertise

Jury Consultant Jennifer Cuculich, JD brings a strong foundation in law and education to her role with IMS Legal Strategies. She skillfully supports trial teams involved in high-stakes and complex civil and criminal matters and helps clients advance their cases with robust research, data-driven strategies, and compelling messaging.

Having previously worked as a litigator at several large national firms and a trial consultant at a litigation research company, Jennifer’s diverse case experience includes such fields as antitrust, product liability, insurance, white-collar defense, criminal tax defense, personal injury, toxic tort, first amendment rights, and sports law, including broadcasting and sponsorship contract disputes. She also has nearly a decade of experience in the education industry—specifically related to instruction, coaching, and curriculum development—which gives her a deep and practical understanding of how and why people learn. Combining this educational background with her training as a trial attorney allows Jennifer to proficiently translate complex concepts and assist litigators in “teaching” the jury through storytelling, graphics, and themes.

Jennifer holds a Juris Doctor degree from Loyola University Chicago School of Law, a Master of Education degree from National Louis University, and a bachelor’s degree in psychology and economics from Boston College. She is proficient in Italian and Spanish and lived for several years in Paraguay, a nation she still supports as a board member for the non-profit organization Superkids Foundation. Jennifer is passionate about using her skills to help others and collaborated on pro bono asylum cases as an attorney. Outside of work, Jennifer enjoys spending time with her three children, playing tennis, cooking, and traveling.
