company focuses around a single objective: improving communication.
we focus on communication, we have developed expertise in the methods,
techniques, and tools that are used by lawyers in communicating to
the jury. While we
never presume to "try the case", we can assume as much of the
communications burden as our client needs.
We will work with witnesses to increase their clarity and credibility
with the jury. Techniques for preparing both expert and fact witnesses
are employed to maximize the quality and impact of their testimony. We
are often able to enhance the "comprehension" of testimony by
experts by helping them to explain, simply, complex elements of testimony.
Our other demonstrative services can also help the jury better understand
complex scientific or legal principles.
We assists attorneys in developing trial strategies by identifying the
key psychological factors in the case. We also can provide our clients
with an independent analysis of their case. Often times, lawyers who have
been working closely with their client, since the beginning of the litigation,
are unable to see strategic or factual flaws in their case. We can provide
lawyers with a new perspective that helps to strengthen their case. We
can also help them conduct focus groups and other "mock trial"
evaluations of their case.
As experts in communication and persuasion, we work with attorneys to
help them become more effective communicators. Research on the psychology
of persuasion is used to help attorneys make their arguments as persuasive
as possible. We also employ many of the "tricks" used by the
entertainment and other industries to make the delivery of the information
more dynamic and comprehensible. The ultimate goal of the lawyer, as the
advocate, is to get the jury to accept his/her account of the case. In
achieving that goal, the lawyer who is most persuasive, most comprehensive,
and is best able to deliver information in a manner that is both understood
and believed by the jury often prevails. We excel in helping lawyers become
better advocates of their case. See our "client testimonials"
for instances where our clients believe that our services helped them
be more effective at trial.
We help prepare witnesses for deposition by working with them to achieve
an understanding of trial themes, and by improving their communication
skills. In addition, we evaluate written or videotaped deposition testimony
and advise on the strengths and weaknesses of each witness. We can also
use our technical services to enhance the testimony of witnesses at trial,
and provide dynamic testimony via video deposition when the live witness
Demonstrative evidence is an important tool in communicating to a jury.
It is, however, just a tool - not the message itself. While graphic displays
are an aspect of litigation support most lawyers focus upon, it is not
necessarily the most critical aspect of the case. It is important to present
simple and professional demonstrative graphics at trial, however, professional
graphics alone will not "make up" for defects in argument or
in presentation of the case. Demonstrative evidence's impact is maximized
when all of the other aspects of the case, and its presentation, are effectively
communicated to the jury. Forensic can help provide appropriate demonstrative
graphics that are simple and persuasive
