A good litigator will periodically revisit the question, “How effective are my trial presentations?” As society and technology evolve, so too should your presentations. Technology is now considered standard in most trial settings, and jurors expect a certain level of technical savvy in case presentation. It is important, therefore, to periodically review your effectiveness and capability in the courtroom. Take it from us: our trial presentation services in Wilmington have been assisting the legal community since 2000. Here are a few tried and true ways you can make the best impression on jurors…
Vary Your Presentation Methods
The fatal flaw of any presentation is monotony. You need to keep the jurors engaged, and if you stick with only one presentation method throughout the trial, you may lose their attention. You can change up how you present facts with strategic use of charts and graphics and even 3D animations of events. Our graphics experts will create powerful demonstratives that help the jury visualize your case.
Know How and When to Use Video
Video is one of the most powerful mediums when it comes to illustrating facts–especially during depositions. You can have interactive depositions that allow deponents to engage with exhibits via LCD telestrator, while picture-in-picture formatting allows the jury to simultaneously see the deponent and the exhibit with which they are interacting. You also have the option of syncing a video deposition to a transcript, allowing for “on-the-fly” editing, clip creation, and seamless courtroom playback.
Something to be mindful of: You can easily overwhelm jurors with too much technology. Technology should not be used in a way that simply creates a spectacle, rather, it should only be used when it is most efficiently and effectively making your point. This will maximize its impact and improve the power of your presentation.
