Bringing a case to life through imagery is one of the most powerful tools an attorney can use in the courtroom. Most judges and jurors expect to see the use of some type of technology, no matter what type of case the attorney may be presenting.


Utilizing the services of a litigation consulting company helps attorneys greatly increase their chances of success. At TrialSpectrum, Inc., our professionals are available to help firms throughout the United States with various types of cases and proceedings.


Imagery is an excellent tool for depositions, mediation, arbitration, courtroom hearings, trials, and other proceedings throughout litigation.


There are two primary types of evidence: substantive and demonstrative.


Substantive evidence refers to evidence of an actual element in the case—such as a weapon or a photograph of the scene of a car accident.


Demonstrative evidence is used to help the judge and jury understand the various pieces of evidence in the case. For example, a graphic that demonstrates how an injury occurs would be demonstrative evidence.


Demonstrative evidence has been shown to be a powerful tool, especially in cases involving complicated, complex issues.


Of course, to be admissible in court, the foundation for the use of the demonstrative evidence must be established by a witness. At TrialSpectrum, Inc., we are able to help create graphics and other visualizations that strengthen your case while ensuring they are admissible in the courtroom.


Using Aids with Expert Witnesses


Expert witnesses are frequently used to help attorneys present evidence to a judge and jury. Because the matters these witnesses testify on are often difficult for many laypersons to understand, presenting visual aids alongside the expert’s testimony not only helps a jury understand the issue, but also remember it during deliberations.


Condensing Lengthy Testimony


As all attorneys know, some trials may go on for weeks and weeks. Although many jurisdictions allow jurors to take notes on evidence and testimony, it may be difficult for some jurors to remember all of the information that is presented, especially if they are experiencing mental fatigue.


Videos, animated graphics, easy-to-understand charts, and other such types of imagery significantly help in these situations. When you present a compelling argument that is partnered with an image that truly impacts a juror, you make it much more likely that the juror remembers and understands the argument you are making.


A Theme is Important


If it looks like an attorney throws images and videos from Google into a PowerPoint presentation, judges and jurors may feel that the resulting product is sloppy—which, of course, reflects poorly on the attorney.


It is important to have a solid theme in a case that builds a relationship between the evidence that is presented. For example, in a medical malpractice case, using the same types of graphics to illustrate parts of the human body is beneficial. In an employment case, using the same font, font color, and background color to highlight employer policies or similar information is best.


The experienced litigation consultants at TrialSpectrum, Inc. will discuss your case with you and determine which aids are best for the arguments you need to make.

Many attorneys focus on digital visual aids such as PowerPoint presentations and animations, but trial exhibit boards continue to serve a valuable purpose in the courtroom.

What Should Be Printed on Trial Exhibit Boards?

A number of factors impact what content should be printed onto a trial exhibit board. For example, in a personal injury claim, accident scene diagrams / photos and images of injuries may be powerful. In breach of contract cases, printing clauses from a contract or quotations from a party may have a significant impact on the jury.

At TrialSpectrum, Inc., our team of litigation consultants and trial technology professionals will work with you to create the most effective trial exhibit board for your legal proceeding. We apply various persuasive techniques to ensure that your arguments and exhibits will have the intended effect on your specific audience.

Trial Exhibit Boards Stay Put to Deliver a Powerful Message

One of the biggest advantages to using trial exhibit boards is that they are stationary. During your opening and closing statements, you can have your case theme highlighted on a trial exhibit board and place it where the jury can easily refer to it. As you question witnesses, present evidence, and make your arguments, the jury will be reminded of the big picture as they connect your case to the theme presented on the trial exhibit board.

Although using animations and PowerPoint presentations is certainly effective, for many jurors, the argument is lost if there are too many slides or if the information is presented too quickly. Using a trial exhibit board allows the jury to focus on the attorney’s arguments and absorb the information that is being presented.

Know Your Audience: Many Jurors Prefer Simpler Presentations

Many jurors, particularly those who are older, easily become overwhelmed by fancy animations, videos, and audio clips. They may struggle to keep up with the points the attorney is arguing, or they may find these types of visual aids distracting. A simple trial exhibit board that is easy to see and easy to read is often a much better approach to use for these jurors.

For many jurors, less is more.

Many attorneys use video testimony during a trial in lieu of having a witness testify in person. Once any necessary evidentiary or procedural hurdles are overcome to introduce videos in a hearing or trial, the professionals at TrialSpectrum, Inc., can help create and edit videos that are of superior quality.

Editing Services

Introducing a video for a judge and jury to view may be a good way to grab their attention—but with a few editing tweaks, a video can become even more interesting and captivating. For example, at TrialSpectrum, Inc., our video editing team can zoom in on a witness as he or she is giving testimony. We can also include captions that highlight what the witness is saying. Both zooming in and adding captions are excellent ways to draw a jury’s attention to important pieces of testimony.

In a courtroom, many judges and jurors have difficulty hearing or understanding everything that a witness says on the stand. However, when introducing video testimony, especially video testimony that includes text captions, attorneys do not have to worry about judges and jurors being able to understand a witness. Even if they do not catch everything the witness says, the captions are available for everyone to read.

If there is background noise in a video of the testimony of a party or witness, there is no need to be concerned. At TrialSpectrum, Inc., we are able to edit audio to ensure that your witness’ testimony is clear and easy to understand.

One powerful editing tool is to use the “picture-in-picture” feature. In a video, a picture of an exhibit, a statement, or any other relevant piece of evidence may be inserted in the screen. For example, if a witness is explaining the location where a car accident took place and is looking at a map, a picture of the map may be displayed on the screen as the witness describes the location.

Body Language

With video testimony, a jury is still able to see important nonverbal cues, such as body language, facial expressions, and tone of voice. These factors help a jury determine whether or not a witness is credible and, therefore, whether that witness’ testimony is believable. Although the witness will not be on the stand to give testimony, jurors will still be able to observe how the witness reacts to questioning.

Video Services

At TrialSpectrum, Inc., we offer a range of video services to our clients.

If you would like to rent video equipment, we have HDTVs, projectors, screens, microphone and speaker equipment, and other types of equipment you may need.

We will ensure that the equipment is set up properly and can capture footage clearly.
