Litigation Software

    • Litigation Software: use Database and Presentation Software to call up electronically-imaged documents, and demonstrative evidence exhibits with bar codes during depositions, mediation, ADR, settlement and at trial. You can access your data from CD-ROMs in your laptop computer or from CD-ROMs stored elsewhere and accessed by phone lines via the Internet. Cold storage of your CD-ROM archived electronic documents is also becoming more available throughout Michigan. Court Reporter Deposition Text can be positioned side-by-side with video deposition testimony from a CD-ROM and played back with ease.

  • Live Presentations: draw or point on a computer image, video tape, or a live video camera for color highlighting and drawing attention to important details during depositions, mediation, ADR, settlement and at trial. You can readily use small color video cameras to electronically display x-rays, photos, 35mm slides, 3-D physical evidence on TV monitors or big video projector screens. That helps prevent potential copyright problems usually associated with physically enlarging paper documents to poster-sized prints. Today's video projectors are suitcase-sized, weighing only 10-12 lbs.; they set up easily without mountains of cables to trip over and can be used without turning room lights off. You can add a laptop computer, video tape players, or a small document camera to that equipment mix.

  • Real-Time Reporting: use or promote the use of real-time reporting during depositions and in court. Court reporters using computer-assisted stenography machines make witness testimony appear instantly on a computer screen or monitor. This allows attorneys to see the spoken words as witnesses testify, thereby, permitting a more detailed examination or cross examination. The marking of notes on an attorney's notebook computer screen eliminates the need to rely on memory or hastily handwritten notes. Finally, real-time reporting creates an immediate transcript to assist in preparing for closing arguments.

  • Multi-Media Computer Consultation, Sales And Service: rely on computer professionals to provide you with consultation on selecting a laptop computer for use inside and outside your office; use it to find and display documents and exhibits during depositions or courtroom displays. You can rent both computers and software; get on-site support, equipment set-up and training on how to use this litigation technology.
  • Jury Research: test your exhibits, arguments and witnesses before you go into court by using an interactive computer and hand-held meters to record the individual responses of jurors during mock trials and focus groups. Usually, these results are available that same day; you don't have to wait a week like with hand-written tests.
