Convincing Hi-Tech Presentations
We’re not merely on the cutting edge of multimedia trial advocacy – we forge it. Our multimedia approach to trial advocacy goes far beyond a picture being worth a thousand words. Our presentation techniques incorporate the use of 3D animation, “60-minute” style witness interviews, and meticulous legal writing to hit hard and severely diminish the insurance companies’ ability to defend against the truth. We have been complimented by judges, adversaries, and even the insurance adjusters that run the defense leading to favorable results and courtroom victories.
