From an Attorney representing a victim in the Jeffrey Epstein Case
“I’ve seen Susan Constantine on various programs for years and always wanted to meet her to discuss her area of expertise in body language. As a lawyer, I pride myself on witness preparation, but sometimes, we can overlook or hurry through final preparations, which can lead to disastrous outcomes.
Recently, I needed help preparing a client for a one-time live interview/presentation via Zoom with the decision maker in the case. I took a chance and called Susan, and she answered the phone immediately. She was charming, funny, polite, intelligent, and most importantly, patient, cooperative, and facilitating. Susan understood the sensitive nature of our case and was ready to assist.
Litigators all know the basics – but, what if you had just one chance to make or break your case? Wouldn’t you take every possible opportunity to help your client make the best possible presentation? Susan’s fresh perspective and expertise in body language helped our client make the best possible presentation, and we achieved a significant result in a high-profile sexual assault case.
Susan is a phenomenal resource and consummate professional. She can notice things that lawyers may overlook or believe insignificant, and provide invaluable advice on things like attire, color choice, hairstyle, makeup, hygiene, and accessories. Even decision makers in a case would benefit from tips on how to read people from their body language.
I highly recommend Susan to anyone looking to improve their witness preparation or presentation skills. She’s a game-changer.”

The 3 Prong Approach
Unique Deception Detection Analysis
Top legal and business professionals look to deception detection experts like Susan Constantine, MPsy and her team because it can be difficult to identify the whole truth. The information the body conveys contains valuable insights into the truthfulness of what someone is saying, but it has to be decoded.
Susan developed a unique deception detection method that combines human behavior analysis, statement analysis, and voice stress analysis to accurately identify when someone is being deceptive. This unique approach combines all three channels of communication – behavior, voice, and language – to achieve a 97% accuracy rate in detecting deception.
The 3-prong approach is so effective because the same data is assigned by 3 different experts who analyze it independently. If a subject is deceptive it will show up in all 3 areas of communication thereby increasing validity and removing human bias.
Behavior analysis is the process of identifying and decoding nonverbal cues such as body language and facial expressions to detect signs of deception. By observing changes in a person’s behavior, such as fidgeting or avoiding eye contact, an analyst can develop an understanding of their behavior patterns and determine when they may be lying or hiding something.
Voice Stress Analysis
The voice stress analyzer (VSA) is used by over 3,500 police agencies worldwide during live interviews or o pre-recorded statements and is scientifically validated to be 97.8% accurate. Used to look for changes in the pitch, frequency, and tone of a person’s voice, which can indicate the level of stress or anxiety that a person is experiencing.
Our expert statement analysis services can help you uncover the truth in written communication. Our team of professionals is trained to identify keywords, repetitive language, and other clues that may indicate deception or evasion.

Reading the Jury Training
It’s impossible to know exactly what a juror is thinking, however, you will learn what to look for, what to listen for, and what really matters when it comes to selecting or deselecting a juror. Most jurors try to mask their emotions but that may indicate what emotions they’re concealing. Small movements that seem inconsequential may give away clues to how a person processes information. A small shift, body angle, eye roll, smirk, eye flutter, raised brow, mouth and lip movement at a precise time may indicate how the jurors feel about you, the attorney, or your client.
You will discover:
- How to read body angles and what they mean
- How to read and decode facial expressions and gestures
- Learn to read emotions of contempt, confusion, concentration, or ambiguity
- How to determine the juror’s normal quirks vs. a hot spot
- Learn how jurors comprehend and retain information

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you again for the wonderful training you provided yesterday at DODIG. I have received nothing but glowing comments from those who attended the event.
I just wanted you to know how much I really enjoyed the workshop that you put on in Atlanta today. As a former federal prosecutor, I had some general exposure to a few of the concepts, but I find the whole subject matter fascinating, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I am going to recommend to my old US Attorney’s office that they sign you up for a seminar!
Thank you for a terrific program. You have a fabulous, engaging communication style. Your workshop was informative, entertaining, provocative, and very beneficial, one of the best I have ever attended.
