How do I get started?
With an experienced trial presentation and courtroom graphics consultant on your team, using technology in the courtroom is much easier than you might think. A consultation meeting is best but here are a few of the key milestones to be aware of when preparing for trial:
1. Prepare your electronic trial exhibits.
In the contemporary litigation world, trial exhibits are typically prepared in a way that is closely compatible with trial presentation software. Standard PDFs are common and may just need some renaming.
2. Organize video deposition (if any).
Video taped depositions should be synced and checked for accuracy. Many court reporting forms with provide synced files and MP4 or MPEG files which easily import into trial presentation software. I will fix anything that is askew.
3. Identify graphics needs.
Whether you need trial boards or PowerPoint presentations for opening statement or closing arguments, we’ve got you covered. My skills with PowerPoint are expert level and I am also proficient with the latest commercial grade, Adobe suite graphic design software. I also work with the some of best consultants in the country to help with overflow.
4. Identify unique files/needs.
Today, cases frequently have some unique file types that may need to be accounted for. Whether it’s a large number of photos for a construction defect case, DICOM images for a med-mal matter or surveillance footage, I can help make sure everything is organized, works and runs smoothly.
5. Schedule technology orientation.
My goal is to make using technology in the courtroom something you do not have to worry about. I strive to incorporate courtroom technology into your working style so you do not have to make adjustments to how you practice and try your case. I quick technology orientation with your trial exhibits will put us on the same page with how to communicate in the courtroom and you will be ready to go.
