Most of you have been summoned for jury duty at least once in your life. It's safe to assert most of you have groaned and toyed with the idea of calling in sick. Not a good idea!

Jury duty is not to be taken lightly. It's  a critical component of our legal system. Every American has the right to a jury, if they choose. Just as you may become involved in DWI litigation in the future and request a jury, there are hundreds of cases within your county for which a jury has already been requested.

Attorneys must review all potential jurors for various criteria. This is in an effort to select a panel of jurors who are unbiased and do not have a vested interest in the outcome of the trial.
