Those of us that work from home like to have several “eggs” or jobs in our basket. If one of our jobs slows down or closes, we have other jobs that we can pick up that will immediately help make up the difference in pay. Some of the eggs that we pick up may be quick, fun jobs that we can do without taxing our brains if we have been working intensely for several hours. As you find new work, you may remove an egg from the basket and put in another one that is better pay, better hours, or a job that you just like better.
The jury jobs listed below are little sideline jobs that can bring in a few dollars occasionally. They do not have a lot of work, but it can be a nice change from what you have been doing all day.
Deed collectors can make some decent money after they have been working a few weeks and can get their speed up. A laptop is a very useful and speeds up the time you will spend on each record. There will be more work in large cities than in small areas. If you live within a short distance of more than one courthouse, you may be able to pick up more than one territory. You will need transportation because you have to travel to the courthouse.
Now accepting qualified online jurors in your area!
Earn extra money by becoming an OnlineVerdict.com juror. You will review interesting legal cases from the comfort of your home, provide feedback through an online questionnaire, and be paid well for your time.
OnlineVerdict.com provides online case review and juror feedback services to attorneys. Case information is summarized and presented to qualified jurors in the venue where the case was filed. Juror feedback is then used by the attorneys to discover the strengths and weaknesses of their case, the possible settlement value, and general attitudes and opinions about their case facts. This information allows attorneys and legal professionals to make better decisions about trying, mediating and settling their legal disputes.
* Intellectually stimulating opportunity to be a mock juror and decide real cases
* Earn additional money working from home – students, housewives, retirees, self- employed and professionals needed!
* Minimal prerequisites to qualify (e.g., U.S. citizen over the age of 18)
* Choose which cases you want to review
* No long-term commitment
How It Works
1. Attorneys submit their case information and questions for the jury on the OnlineVerdict.com website.
2. As an eligible online juror you may be asked to review cases that are filed in your county or federal district. You will receive an email invitation from OnlineVerdict.com to review the case at your convenience, but once enough responses are received, the case will close and no additional participants are needed.
3. Your email invitation will provide a link to the OnlineVerdict.com website. After you log in you will be directed to the case and asked to agree to the confidentiality policy, review the case materials and answer all questions about that case.
There are no right or wrong answers. We are only looking for your honest reaction to the information that was presented to you. Your time commitment for each case will vary from 20 minutes to 1 hour depending on the details of the case, but you always have the option to choose which cases you want to review. The estimated time commitment for each case will be included in your email invitation.
4. After you complete a case you will be paid for your time. Payment amounts vary depending on the complexity and length of the case you review, but payments start at $20 per case and can go up to $60 per case. Checks are mailed once a month to the address you have on file in your OnlineVerdict.com account. The number of cases you may be asked to review will also vary depending on the number of attorneys in your area who are using this service.
How it Works
eJury provides an attorney the opportunity to “pre-try” the case before it goes to trial in front of an actual jury at the courthouse. Cases at the courthouse are usually tried to juries of 12 people. At eJury, each case is tried to a minimum of 50 people. This provides the attorney with a tremendous amount of feedback which he/she will use to establish a settlement value, find strengths and weaknesses in the evidence, learn “public” attitudes, improve jury selection, discover the most effective arguments. The typical eJury case works like this:
Step 1: The attorney prepares the Case Submission which consists of facts from the perspectives of each party, the jury questions which would be used at trial, and personal questions designed to obtain additional feedback.
Step 2: eJury converts the attorney’s Case Submission into an “html format” and posts it to a secure location on our website where only eJurors in the county of selection can access the case. The eJurors in that county are then notified by e-mail that a new case has been posted.
Step 3: The eJurors return to our website, log in, and begin reviewing the facts and answering the questions, each clicking a “Submit Verdict” button upon completion. Once the minimum number of verdicts have been rendered (usually 50), the case automatically concludes. A case summary is posted later for those interested in seeing the results.
Qualifications for service as an eJuror are much the same as the requirements for actual jury service in the United States. To qualify as an eJuror, you must:
* be at least 18 years of age;
* be a citizen of the United States;
* be of sound mind and good moral character;
* be able to read and write;
* have never been convicted of a felony; and not be under indictment or other legal accusation of misdemeanor theft or felony theft or any felony charge.
In addition to the eJuror Qualifications above, eJury has several special qualifications which are set forth in an “Oath” which new eJurors complete during the sign-up process. These special qualifications require that each eJuror must:
* not be an actively practicing attorney, paralegal, or legal assistant;
* not be employed by or associated with an attorney or law firm;
* not be related to a practicing attorney within the first degree of affinity (marriage) or within second degree of consanguinity (blood); and
* not be employed as an insurance adjuster, nor associated with the adjusting of liability claims.
What exactly does an independent courthouse researcher do? Marketing companies nationwide are eagerly looking for data collected from mortgage documents. These documents are filed after a home is purchased or an equity line of credit is obtained. The documents are public records, and available to collect in the courthouses free of charge.
How It Works
Many independent courthouse researchers benefit from:
* Working independently within their own schedule and pace
* Using their computer or laptop to earn extra income
* Training with and collecting directly for top notch market research companies
Most independent courthouse researchers average $12-$18 dollars per hour. Your rate of pay is based on the number of records you collect, and the speed in which you collect them.
