Litigation Graphics

Increase Comprehension and Retention of Key Graphics

The cliché, “a picture is worth a thousand words” has never been truer or more appropriate than when applied to trial or ADR. Ideas and information are best understood, and most clearly remembered when received through a combination of sight and sound. After three days, jurors retain only 10% of what they hear, but 65% of what they see and hear. Visual reinforcement of testimony evidence and case themes consolidates juror understanding and strengthens recall in the jury room.

Extensive Trial Graphics Experience

Our trial graphics consultants have tremendous experience developing trial graphics for every type of case, and can be instrumental in both conceptualization and production of key demonstratives. Tsongas’ graphics services and products include:

Trial graphic consultation and conceptualization sketches
Exhibit boards that display evidentiary elements such as timelines, documents and photo blow-ups, graphics, charts, and illustrations
Two and three-dimensional animations that simulate events, “put jurors into the scene,” and add the dynamics of motion and depth
to an explanation or argument
Video production, including day-in-the-life videos
Complete multi-media presentations

Litigation graphics are a useful tool

Graphics and exhibit boards can be the most effective solution for explanation and persuasion when:

Communicating complex ideas
Chronology or sequence is critical
Language and concepts are highly technical
A complex process needs simplification to be understood
The cumulative weight of evidence needs to be synthesized
The evidence lacks a sense of realism
The numbers are too complicated to be easily explained
The case has potential for information overload

Trial graphics come in many forms

Tsongas can assist counsel in determining the most effective graphic tool.

Exhibit boards are the most frequently used type of courtroom visuals and are effective in a wide variety of uses including time lines, document blow-ups, photo blow-ups, line and bar graphs, concept charts, illustrations, text charts, and pie charts
2D Computer Animation allows objects to move at any speed in any direction and can show flow, the interaction of parts, or animate the passing of time
3D Computer Animation can virtually simulate an actual event bringing the viewer into the scene, seeing an object from any angle, exploring it, and even flying through it
A video presentation can bring the scene to the jury in investigations, demonstrations, and depositions
Multi-media presentations combine several technologies for maximum persuasive impact
