Who is Amy Singer?

Amy Singer is a Florida trial consultant and research psychologist. Singer’s firm, Trial Consultants, Inc., which she founded in Miami in 1979, is one of the first trial consulting firms in the United States. Singer is an acknowledged authority in the field of litigation psychology, a discipline she helped pioneer. Her revolutionary approach, which consists of applying principles of psychology and using open-ended questions to elicit jurors’ value beliefs regarding key trial issues, changed the way that attorneys around the United States conduct voir dire. Largely through Singer’s influence, this became a juror de-selection, not selection, process.

Singer is a leader in the application of neuro-linguistic programming by attorneys to influence jurors. Singer also is believed to be the first person to conduct a shadow jury on television, which she did for A Current Affair in its coverage of the William Kennedy Smith rape trial in Palm Beach, Florida, in 1991.

Singer is a 1975 graduate of Hofstra University, Hempstead, New York. She received her master of arts and her doctorate at Hofstra in applied research psychology. Singer is licensed in clinical psychology in New York. She is a past instructor in psychology at Nova Southeastern University, Fort Lauderdale, and Florida International University, Miami-Dade County, Florida.
