The legal world has been forced to change drastically because of the coronavirus pandemic. With social distancing a requirement in many jurisdictions, hearings and other proceedings are being held remotely.

The professionals at TrialSpectrum, Inc. are available to help your firm adapt to social distancing requirements while you continue to provide thorough, excellent representation to your clients.

During the coronavirus pandemic, TrialSpectrum, Inc. is offering remote services for no additional charge. Whether you need TrialSpectrum, Inc. to assist with a single hearing or with an entire case from initiation to conclusion, we are available to help.

Depositions

One of the most important purposes of a deposition is to observe how a party or witness reacts to a specific line of questioning. Although in-person depositions may not be available during the pandemic, there are remote options that allow attorneys to conduct their questioning and study an individual’s responses.

For example, video depositions are a popular alternative to in-person depositions. Our team is available to help ensure that your deposition proceeds as smoothly as possible.

For example, we take the needs of your firm and your client into account. We can provide a DVD to you as quickly as necessary, and we can provide additional electronic equipment you may need during the deposition. We have monitors, document cameras, projectors, and other such equipment available.

Mediation

It is also possible to conduct mediations via teleconference or video conference. The team at TrialSpectrum, Inc. is able to copy documents and create graphics and other visual aids that may be helpful during negotiations.

Our professionals use reliable software that provides excellent video and audio quality. Our software has screensharing capabilities to streamline the settlement process. We are able to accommodate individuals in various time zones as well for the convenience of everyone involved.

Confidentiality is a concern in mediation. At TrialSpectrum, Inc., our professionals use software that allows the mediator to communicate with select parties at a time, or with the group as a whole. We are able to set up various virtual “rooms,” depending on the needs of your case.

Arbitration

Many attorneys express a desire to simplify the arbitration process as much as possible, especially if arbitration will be held via videoconference. For example, some attorneys may wish to provide copies of depositions and other pieces of evidence to the arbitrator and to opposing counsel. TrialSpectrum, Inc. assists with all preparations needed for arbitration, as well as virtual arbitration itself.

Our team members also ensure that arbitration is conducted privately and securely.

In today’s world, judges and jurors alike expect to see the use of technology during a trial. By implementing the use of interactive diagrams, video footage, and other such pieces of technology, a once bland oral argument or tedious line of questioning suddenly becomes engaging and interesting.

The experts at TrialSpectrum, Inc. have assisted countless attorneys in their trial preparations and have helped them create strategies that are persuasive and credible in the eyes of the judge and jury.

However, the use of too much technology can impact a jury negatively. The jury may be so focused on a display or video that it loses sight of the primary argument. However, with the right team of experts, the best types of technology for your case may be carefully selected and inserted into your arguments and questioning.

The Right Balance

For example, consider the use of digital displays in a courtroom. In the courtroom, a visual display has been shown to significantly impact a jury’s understanding of the point the attorney is trying to make. An attorney’s oral description of a medical error, for example, may be complex and confusing for a jury. However, diagrams and other displays may show the jury exactly where and how the alleged malpractice occurred.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, however, using especially advanced types of visual technology, such as virtual reality displays or even holograms, may be distracting for the jury. The focus on the visual display may become so strong that the attorney’s accompanying arguments and statements are virtually ignored.

The Characteristics of the Jurors

Another factor to consider when preparing for trial is the jury’s receptiveness to the arguments that will be made. To make a well-rounded trial strategy using technology, knowing the ability of the jury to understand and interpret various displays and audio clips is essential to prevailing in court.

With the assistance of a jury consultant or trial support company, however, attorneys may narrow down their pool of jurors to those who are best able to understand technology. Issues to consider are whether a juror is hard of hearing, is color blind, uses technology frequently, or has poor vision.

Prepare, Prepare, Prepare

A well-rounded trial strategy also includes back-up plans. What if it storms on the day of trial and the court’s Wi-Fi connection fails? What if the courtroom’s audio system does not work on the date of the hearing? With the assistance of a trial support company, you have technology experts standing by to ensure you are ready to turn to “Plan B” if needed.

At TrialSpectrum, Inc., all services are managed in-house. Rather than risk contracting services out to third parties that may or may not be reliable on the day of trial, we prepare all products ourselves. Our employees are trained in the most cutting-edge forms of trial technology and are available to assist attorneys at any time.

Knowing Your Courtroom

Courthouses vary significantly in terms of available and allowable technology from one jurisdiction to the next. Further, within a single courthouse, judges may have a variety of preferences and rules that apply to trials in their courtrooms. Preparing a case for its specific courtroom is extremely important and makes a significant difference in the outcome of the case. The technology experts at TrialSpectrum, Inc. help attorneys prepare for trials throughout the country and know how to tailor presentations to meet the requirements and restrictions of individual judges.

The Use of Technology in the Courtroom: Bringing Your Case to Life for the Judge and Jury

An engaging, easy-to-understand argument is key to success in any type of trial or hearing. The use of technology in the courtroom allows attorneys to use a variety of media to build the strongest case possible for their clients. The use of a mixture of media, such as videos, audio clips, and graphics, makes it much more likely that jurors will be receptive to the attorney’s arguments.

In addition, many jurors simply expect to see some form of technology in the courtroom, thanks to popular shows like CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Attorneys who use technology in conjunction with their statements and questioning witnesses are often seen as more credible, professional, and organized in the courtroom.

However, many attorneys simply do not know how to use technology in the courtroom. Technological advances occur every day—and since attorneys’ primary focus is on changes in the law, they may be unaware as to the technological tools that are available for their cases.

This is where it is beneficial to hire a trial support and technology company. While the attorneys focus on the legal aspects of the case, these companies determine what types of technology are best to emphasize their positions.

Effective Types of Trial Technology

Visual Aids

There are a variety of visual aids that may be used in the courtroom. These aids are especially useful in complex cases, such as those involving medical malpractice. Jurors may have a difficult time understanding what went wrong in a surgery, for example—but images that explain the surgery and alleged mistakes a doctor made can help tremendously.

Trial graphics are a popular form of trial technology and encompass a variety of items. Infographics, chronologies, graphs, diagrams, animations, and document call-outs are just a few examples of the trial graphics that are available to use in the modern courtroom.

Exhibit boards are a classic visual aid. These may be used to enlarge documents, photographs, and other pieces of evidence. They are especially effective for pieces of evidence attorneys want to emphasize and allow to remain on display for the judge and jury for a longer period of time.

Videos are highly effective in trials and hearings, whether it is security camera footage or a clip from a deposition. With proper editing, a video may become one of the most powerful pieces of evidence submitted in the courtroom.

Audio Aids

Audio aids, such as recorded phone calls, sound clips, and similar items are all useful in the courtroom. However, when using audio aids, it is extremely important to take the layout and acoustics of the courtroom into account. Trial support and technology companies know how to present audio clips in such a way that they are clear and loud enough for the judge and jury to hear and understand.
