It’s Trial Season and Presentation is Everything

Trial Presentation Software

We all know the difference visuals can make in a presentation. We’ve sat in audiences and struggled connecting with a speaker, because their slides were strings of black bullet points and good old Times New Roman. Their content and expertise may have been world class, but their slide deck might as well have been a pocket watch dangled from a hypnotist’s hand, his voice whispering Sleep, sleep in our ears.

When you’re an attorney preparing for trial, that’s the last thing you want to happen when you present your case. Trial presentation software (like TrialDirector 360 by Ipro) definitely makes a difference. Gone are the days of fumbling with an ELMO or shuffling through binders with thousands of pages to prove your case. TrialDirector allows you to bring in your pre-trial exhibits, pretreat documents, and organize them into workbooks. You can even create and edit video depositions when a witness is unable to attend trial. And even if you don’t go to trial, TrialDirector can still be used for hearings and arbitrations.

Trial Services

This all sounds great. The problem is, you went to law school instead of studying graphic design. Sure, having TrialDirector would help, but if you’re not an expert at using it, you may as well go back to your flip chart. That’s where Ipro Trial Services comes in and saves the day.

We have the largest number of certified Trial Consultants in the industry and bring years of experience in the courtroom to your litigation team. With our assistance, your team can focus on case theory, strategy, and the law, rather than how, where, and when the exhibits will be displayed in court.

There are many additional advantages to having lpro trial consultants with you in the courtroom. lpro’s on-site trial team can “free-up” your litigation staff, while the consultants work with the trial attorneys to pre­pare a witness, create demonstrative graphics, and provide document imaging and management services. Additionally, our trial consultants will maintain presentation and war room system integrity throughout the trial.

And our graphic designers know what demonstrative types work for each situation in the courtroom. This experience allows them to collaborate alongside experts and team members, recommending and creating stunning visuals that drive home the principle themes in your case.

We’ll even come to the courtroom with you! Every one of our trial consultants is required to master TrialDirector360 and other cutting-edge technology, to maximize the impact of your presentation, so you can focus on presenting the facts to the jury.

Because the Courtroom isn’t the Classroom: Attorneys Need Trial Presentation Software Designed Specifically for Trial

trial presentation software

Historically, teachers have used a variety of technology display tools for presenting information to their students; a photocopy on transparency paper via an overhead projector or a video camera hooked up to a TV on a rolling cart to show clear images from a book. Fast forward a few more years when smart podiums came along, giving teachers the ability to connect a laptop to a projector and show images, word docs, and videos. These were all powerful in their day. Often, the presentation needs of teachers and attorneys have a lot of similarities, gaining the right focus of your audience, but attorneys have much more at stake; they need dynamic trial presentation software to meet their needs in the courtroom. Yet many still use PowerPoint, document cameras, and even foam boards to present evidence to the jury. 

The law firm Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard were doing just that 4 years ago, when they realized they needed far more control and flexibility over their presentations. That’s when they switched to TrialDirector as their go-to trial presentation software for trial. The firm attributes TrialDirector’s seamless flow, the ability to call up exhibits on the fly, video deposition tools, and how easily the presentation integrates with the attorney’s dialogue as having a powerful impact on the jury to help them tell their story and provide a positive outcome for their clients. 

With TrialDirector 360 you can: 

  • Present virtually any type of document or media from your PC or laptop 
  • Streamline your entire trial preparation and presentation process with one tool 
  • Organize transcripts, video depo’s, and documents for offline presentation 
  • Impress juries and clients through easy-to-present, impactful multimedia presentations 
  • Easily collaborate with multiple users working on a centrally stored case 

Most of the time we stick with what we know and make it work, often not realizing there may be a better solution out there. Trial presentation is no different, attorneys need a competitive edge in the courtroom and TrialDirector 360 can give them that edge.
