Trial Consultants/ Technicians
Our trial consultants are experts who will help your team prepare for trial well before it starts. We
will work closely with you to ensure that your exhibits, video depositions, graphics, etc. are ready
for presentation during trial. They actively offer suggestions at every stage of trial, from how to
scan your documents, how to review designated video depositions, and what equipment should
be used at trial.
Each of our consultants has over a 100 trials under their belt, as well as mediations, arbitrations, hearings, and focus groups. They know from experience that these presentations require flexibility, responsiveness, and the ability to work on the fly. Having a Midwest Trial Consultant on your team means we will take care of all presentation elements; leaving you to focus on what’s important, making your case.

We can quickly create text files of your designations. So you can review exactly what portions of the video you have had us edit to play. We also have the ability to make last-minute changes to your video designations. For example: Due to rulings by the court during side bar. Something you cannot do with a pre-edited DVD.
Document and graphic display
During trial, we can easily bring up any document or graphic, simply by typing in its exhibit number. We can annotate, highlight and zoom into portions of the documents immediately, making sure never to break stride with your questioning of the witness. Thus, allowing you to maximize your time and ability to be responsive to the ever-changing events of litigation. If needed, deleting any of the annotations is fast and easy giving you a clean slate for your next witness.
