Trish Seidel


Jury Recruiter





Born and raised in Mandan, ND, Trish went to college not too far from home at Minot State. After graduating in 2000 with a degree in Criminal Justice, she worked as a parole/probation officer for 20 years.

Trish joined the First Court team in May 2021. In her position as a jury recruiter at First Court, Trish works to recruit a specific demographic of jurors from different areas of the US to participate in mock trials and to help clients get feedback before the trial so that they can see how a jury would tend to lean in the case. Trish also explains that: “Jury Recruiters are also the main point of contact, so we must be professional, helpful and friendly to all the potential jurors recruited.”

What are two fun facts about you?

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?

My biggest dream is to leave ND in the winter and have a second home in FL so that I can be warm all year round!
