Trial technology is never static—it changes constantly with the courtroom environment and with the expectations of juries and judges. The courtroom has undergone especially dramatic changes since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic nearly two years ago. An increase in the use of technology, a greater number of virtual proceedings, and other changes have caused many attorneys to revamp their trial advocacy skills. At TrialSpectrum, Inc., we can help your firm understand the expectations juries have in today’s courtroom and work with you to build presentations that are compelling and impressive to these decision-makers.


It’s All About the Technology


As coronavirus cases skyrocketed in much of the country, many courtrooms installed various pieces of equipment to allow for virtual hearings and trials. Video screens are displayed in several areas of many courtrooms. In some jury boxes, jurors have individual screens to view exhibits, such as photographs and documents.


When jurors walk into a courtroom and see this equipment, they expect it to be used. Therefore, attorneys need to be prepared to present exhibits on large screens. They should use video footage, animations, recorded interviews, and the like. Even having a PowerPoint presentation that highlights text from a document may grab attention better than simply displaying the document itself.


At TrialSpectrum, Inc., our trial technology experts are prepared to help you create a presentation that wows the jury. We are able to create animations, video presentations, graphics, and other visual aids that you may pair with your arguments to persuade the jury.


Be Organized


Jurors are required to take time away from their work and families to serve on jury trials. They are in the courtroom to view a trial and make a decision. Therefore, an attorney who is unorganized may be viewed as one who is disrespectful to the jurors, and even to the judge. The jurors may think, “We have to be here to observe this trial, and this attorney is not even prepared?”


A well-prepared attorney will impress the jury. Providing an easy-to-follow timeline of events as well as exhibits that are easy to see, hear, and understand will go far with most jurors. At TrialSpectrum, Inc., we work with attorneys in all types of cases to create presentations that are organized and easy to follow. We can create animations, organize PowerPoints, and edit video footage. Our team will explain what techniques are persuasive to jurors, depending on your jury pool and the facts of your case.


With our assistance, you will appear professional, experienced, and thoroughly prepared. Our team is also available to offer technological support before and during your proceeding so that you may focus on your arguments.

No matter how well an attorney prepares for a legal proceeding, there is always a chance that something is going to go wrong. At TrialSpectrum, Inc., our trial technology experts and presentation consultants make sure that your presentation goes as smoothly as possible so that you may focus on making your legal arguments and representing your client.


Your Reaction Impacts the Jury


During a jury trial, the jurors watch the attorneys closely throughout the case—even when they are not on the stand. Jurors may notice that an attorney suddenly begins to look frantic while typing on a computer. The attorney hits keys over and over again and begins sending text messages and consulting with co-counsel. When it is time to speak, the attorney fumbles with the computer for several seconds before finally proceeding.


Jurors may feel that the attorney is unprepared because the attorney did not practice a presentation or is unfamiliar with trial technology. At TrialSpectrum, Inc., our team can help you avoid looking inexperienced in front of a jury. Our team members meet with you before a trial for trial prep and practice displaying your PowerPoint presentations, video files and exhibits. If needed, we are available on the date of your proceeding to resolve any technical issues that arise. Jurors often never realize that something has gone wrong.


Confidence is Key in the Courtroom


Part of being successful in the courtroom is appearing confident, even when things are going wrong. If a technical error causes an attorney to fumble arguments or forget things, the jury will remember. In addition, if an attorney’s body language changes after experiencing a technical error—for example, being unable to find the right power cord for a computer—the jury will also notice. Throughout a hearing or trial, an attorney must speak clearly and maintain strong body language to fully persuade the jury.


With TrialSpectrum, Inc. by your side during your legal proceeding, you will appear cool and confident from your opening statements to your closing arguments. Why? The answer is simple — we set up your venue before you step in and ensure that all of your equipment is working properly and is easy for the jury to see and hear. We are with you every step of the way, even in the courtroom, to ensure your proceeding goes as smoothly as possible.

For attorneys, attention to detail and careful planning and organization are crucial factors in their cases, no matter what type of law they may practice. Once an attorney figures out a system for handling cases and conducting trials, he or she may be hesitant to embrace new technology, even if it can help the attorney save time and become more efficient.


At TrialSpectrum, Inc., we encourage attorneys to welcome new technology that can help set them apart in the courtroom. We know that learning about new technology can be stressful and overwhelming. Therefore, we are also available to help attorneys learn and practice how to use new software and equipment.


Technology Helps Show the Client’s Story in an Irrefutable Way


The trial exhibit board has been used by attorneys for decades, if not longer. Statements from a deposition, photographs, blueprints, and other pieces of evidence are blown up, printed, and displayed on a board for the judge and jury to see.


In some cases, an attorney uses multiple exhibit boards to show a timeline of events.


However, many attorneys have begun using animations to provide a more detailed understanding of an event to the judge and jury. Rather than hoping that the jury pieces together an event by filling in the gaps between trial exhibit boards, an animation portrays a seamless reenactment of an event and leaves little to the jury’s imagination.


Rest Easy Knowing Backups Are Available


Many attorneys are uncomfortable with the idea of using technology in the courtroom to display exhibits and make arguments. What if the equipment does not work? What if the file becomes corrupt? Relying on a physical exhibit is much more comfortable and familiar to these attorneys.


However, just as a copy can be made of a document or a photograph, copies can be made of digital files. External hard drives and other media can be used to store backups of files. At TrialSpectrum, Inc., we are prepared with a backup plan in case of internet outages or equipment failure. In fact, members of our team can be available for a hearing or trial just in case there is some type of technical error. We can have you back up and running in just a few moments.


Juries Expect Updated Technology


Attorneys should be motivated to learn about new technology simply because the jury has come to expect it in the courtroom. Juries may quickly become bored. However, present them with a graphic PowerPoint presentation, video, a recorded deposition with captions, or an animation, and their attention will be held.


When attorneys hire TrialSpectrum, Inc., they reap the benefits of using trial technology without having to put in hours of work to learn how to implement it. Our staff is able to create dynamic PowerPoint presentations, graphics, animations and edit videos.. Of course, our team helps attorneys practice and learn how to use the technology in court. However, attorneys may focus on creating legal arguments and practicing their opening and closing statements while the trial technology experts at TrialSpectrum, Inc., focus on designing exhibits that are both easy to understand and impressive.
