Dr. Gil Calvillo wears many hats as a communications and legal expert: he’s a coach, psychologist, and strategist, all in the service of helping his clients tell their story and be their best, most persuasive selves.

As a former NIH fellow in neuropsychology with a background in clinical psychology, Dr. Calvillo performed hundreds of patient evaluations that resulted in his becoming a leading expert in the field when it comes to assessing people’s cognitive, intellectual, and emotional ability. Today he uses his scientific training to evaluate clients, help them define their goals, and craft the strongest possible message for achieving those goals.

For litigators, Dr. Calvillo’s psychological expertise makes him uniquely qualified to prepare strong witnesses, draft voir dire questions, and assist with jury selection, including a keen ability to detect juror bias during voir dire. He has a particular interest in jurors from diverse backgrounds and cultures, examining how their perceptions and experience affect their verdicts, including decisions about damages.

For non-litigators, Calvillo and Associates supply feedback on presentation, including body language, pacing, eye contact and other crucial non-verbal signals that are essential to gaining an audience’s trust and approval.

The ultimate goal of Dr. Calvillo’s communications training is to increase confidence, for both legal and non-legal clients.

He begins by helping craft a message that makes the complex simple, whether it’s how to explain a medical device to a jury, a scientific formula to potential investors, or hi-tech software to C-suite executives.  Once clients have mastered their subject, everything from presiding over a board meeting to presenting a jury summation becomes as compelling as it is clear and convincing.

Calvillo and Associates has conducted communications training and litigation research with regional, national and international corporations. The firm is based in Los Angeles, California.
