Frequently Asked Questions

Juror Process

OnlineVerdict will post a case summary and verdict questions for review. If the case is posted in your area, you will receive an email invitation to participate. If you choose to participate and complete the case review, you will receive payment for your time and feedback!

To become an OnlineVerdict juror you must be a U.S. citizen and over the age of 18. You will be asked to complete a juror profile which consists of a series of demographic questions (e.g. date of birth, marital status, ethnicity, employment status, etc.) and you must agree to the terms and conditions of the service. Your personal, identifiable information will not be revealed to the participating attorneys or any third-party. It will be held in the strictest confidence in accordance with our privacy policy.

Jurors who have completed their profile will receive an email invitation after an attorney has posted a case in their venue. If there are no cases posted in your area, you will not hear from OnlineVerdict. You have the option to participate in a case by clicking on a link within the email. If you do not wish to participate you can simply ignore or delete the invitation. Registered jurors have no obligation to review cases or to finish reviewing a case once they start. However, you will only receive payment if you complete the study. The number of cases posted in your venue will determine the number of possible case review invitations you will receive.

There are no long-term commitments. If you no longer wish to review cases simply click the “Unsubscribe” link in one of the email invitations you receive, and your user account will be deleted from the site.

Yes. We do not restrict what other survey work you do. We are just happy to have you as an OnlineVerdict juror.

Fees & Payments

There are no fees to sign up or participate as a juror with OnlineVerdict. We pay you to review cases for us.

Online case reviews may take anywhere from 30-60 minutes to complete depending on the length of the case summary and the number of attorney-provided questions. Juror payment amounts ($30-$60) reflect the amount of time we estimate it takes to review a case.

Virtual mock-trials are not self-paced but on a specific date and time. They are anywhere from 2 hours to 10 hours (or over a few days). You will listen to either recorded or live presentations and deliberate as a group virtually. To participate, you must have a webcam and mic on a desktop or laptop (phones are not accepted devices). These studies are conducted via Zoom. Payments for this type of study range from $75-$700.

In person mock-trials are generally one day (8-5 p.m.) on a specific date (or over a few days). You listen to live presentations from both sides of the case, provide feedback via iPads, and deliberate as a group. Payments range from $200-$700 depending upon the length of the study.

The type of study (online, virtual, in person), the date/time, and the amount of payment for each case will be noted in the email invitation you receive.

The only way we pay our jurors is by a check sent through the mail. This assures us that participants are who they say they are and that they live in the venue in which their account is based. Sometimes, payments are in cash for onsite projects. Otherwise, checks are mailed 1-2 weeks after you complete your case review. If the post office fails to deliver your check, in special circumstances, we may ask for either Venmo, Zelle, or Paypal to expedite payment to you.

As an online juror you will not be an employee of OnlineVerdict and we do not take taxes out of your checks. You are considered to be an independent contractor with us and are responsible for reporting any additional income on your tax return. If you receive more than $600 in a calendar year from us, however, we will send you a 1099.

We cannot control nor guarantee the United States Post Office! However, no worries! If your check has not arrived within 2-3 weeks of your participation, please contact us. We will reissue your check or provide an electronic payment to expedite your earnings.

Expected Caseload

The number of cases available to review is dependent on the number of attorneys in your area using our system at any given time. As soon as a case is available to review you will be notified at the email address we have on file. If you haven’t heard from us, please check your spam folder and make sure we are not being blocked.

The number of cases available to review is dependent on the number of attorneys in your area using our system at any given time. In general, major metropolitan areas tend to have more activity than smaller counties, but we do have cases all across the country. As soon as a case is available to review you will be notified at the email address we have on file.

Unfortunately, OnlineVerdict jurors are only allowed to review cases in the county or Federal District in which they live. This is how real jurors are chosen and attorneys want to know what jurors in their particular venue think about the facts of their case. Occasionally we have national surveys that all OnlineVerdict jurors may participate in. As soon as a case is available to review you will be notified at the email address we have on file.

Technical Problems with Signup

Since we just revamped our website, email [email protected] and put ‘Technical Issue’ in the subject line for any issues you are seeing. Please be specific with what the issue is.

OnlineVerdict’s website was updated in November 2023. We no longer use a participant ‘account’ system. When you register for OnlineVerdict, we will simply notify you when cases are in your area.

OnlineVerdict does not buy or sell email lists. We are a 100% opt-in database. This means at some point, even years ago! you put your information in our database. If you no longer wish to be in our database, instead of labeling the email as abuse, we would appreciate it if you simply unsubscribed from our list. We are only contacting you because we think you want us to.

The old system had jurors login to their accounts to update their profile. Now, simply re-register as a juror, and it will automatically update your information in the database.
