Artemis’ path to litigation consulting began while still in law school, working as an intern with David Ball and interviewing jurors post-trial in both civil and death penalty cases.
This experience early on focused her attention on identifying what drives decision-making as well as the importance and skill of framing an argument in a more productive, simple and persuasive way. A member of the North Carolina State Bar, Artemis H. Malekpour has consulted on a wide variety of cases across the country. Through years of conducting jury research, observing deliberations and moderating discussions, she has a knack for identifying potential landmines, analyzing each case from the decisionmakers’ perspective.
