so, you ask...what can I do for you?

I'm A Professional

I’ve been involved in trial support for over 30 years. I know what’s at stake and what I need to do to help you try to win your case.  Everything I do in the courtroom is predicated on anticipating the next move—before you make it.

I'm Versatile

I can do whatever you need me to do—create a PowerPoint from scratch; prepare your digital exhibits, video, and audio; design an oversized graphic for a poster board; set up and manage a war room, or assist with witness preparation—all you have to do is ask.

I'm In It For The Long Haul

Going to trial is a physically and mentally exhausting experience.  The proceedings take up the better portion of the day and then there’s the next day for which preparations must be made.  It goes with the territory.  I do whatever I need to do to make sure I have everything my client could possibly need, just in case there is a scheduling snafu—even if that means pulling an all-nighter.

it's true...there is no 'I' in T-E-A-M

Presentation Design

My clients ask me to get involved in the litigation process at different points in time, depending on the individual circumstances of each case.  Whether it’s a PowerPoint® presentation for an opening statement, a multimedia mediation or settlement package, or a significant evidentiary hearing, I can design one that is both professional and efficient.  Preparation of interactive timelines with video and digital documents is also available on demand.  It’s your story.  I will help you tell it in a way that helps your audience get the point and take the action you need.

Trial Exhibit Databases

Trial exhibit database software such as TrialDirector®  makes presenting large amounts of digital evidence and video smooth and efficient. I consult with you and your staff to organize and retrieve documents from digital discovery software programs in the proper format for trial presentation, being sure that they correspond with the paper versions of your trial exhibits, in TIFF or PDF format.  Digital exhibit stickers are applied electronically and displaying documents and video simultaneously is as simple as drag-and-drop or by typing in exhibit numbers.

Video and Audio Editing

Upload your DVDs or ship them to me and I will synchronize them with the deposition transcript so you can use it with the trial presentation software of your choice.  I use TrialDirector, but I can export a sync file in one of many different formats.
