Embracing Technology as an Attorney



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.
