TRIAL PRESENTATION

LIFE & LOSS BIOGRAPHY

ABOUT THIS VIDEO: This video was presented at trial just before Plaintiff rested their case. This video is a reduction from a complete case narrative presentation that was previously used to successfully mediate some of the Defendants. Following mediation, the case narrative was then used for trial preparations, and later refined from a version you see here. At trial, this exhibit was objected to in it’s entirety on the basis of hearsay. That objection was overruled because most of what was being said in the video was specific to who Delaney was as a person, her relationship with her family, and how the family was impacted as a result of her loss. The judge dismissed the jury, and the video was played to allow specific objections to specific parts of the video. Of the many objections, about six were sustained which resulted in the loss of only 1.5 minutes of content. The changes were made that afternoon, and the revised trial version was played the next day. After this video was presented to the jury, they returned to find in favor of The Plaintiff, and award record damages. The original family interviews were created almost 2 years before trial at the family’s home. For those recordings, I used special technology to help guide the interviewees’ eyes directly into the camera in a very natural and comfortable way.

FORMATS / ASSETS UTILIZED: The life of this video evolved with the case. Formats included: Life and Loss Biography Presentation; Family Impact Statements; Mediation / Settlement Presentation (54 minutes); Case Narrative Presentation (2 hours 5 minutes); and Trial Presentation (18 minutes). A variety of case assets were displayed in picture-in-picture format depending on the presentation format including: family photos; interviews; workplace photos; videos; music; social media presence; news footage; online video; magazine articles; awards and recognitions; community involvement; custom editing; video deposition highlights from +20 video depositions; medical records; CV’s; expert reports; graphs; animated timelines; site inspection; hospital policies; government regulations; nursing notes; laboratory notes; phone records; and more.

 EXPERT PRESENTATION

EXPERT REPORT

PURPOSE: To maximize viewer comprehension and your expert witness investment.

BENEFIT: Your audience understands, believes, and remembers your message.

ASSETS UTILIZED: Expert opinion video; intro and outro identifiers; CV; Google Earth; multiple bus camera video; actual damages live video; stopwatch timer; site inspection video; directional aids; object highlighting; object tracking; labeling; callouts; freeze framing; rewind and replay; musical close

PRICING: Priced depending on the length of report; number of exhibits; complexity of the edits; the expert’s location; and turnaround time. Expert presentations can also be integrated into Summary Judgement Presentation; Focus Group Presentation; Settlement Presentation; and Trial Presentation. This adds significant value to your initial investment.

ABOUT THIS VIDEO: The interview format demonstrated in this video is optional. Alternatively, you can present your witness as speaking directly into the camera (which is also the eyes and hearts of your audience). I use special technology to make this possible, and can guarantee a smooth, and positive expert experience. You have to see this for yourself. Email me to learn more about this incredible new process. Until then, view to this expert presentation sample, and start getting ideas for use with your next expert.

SETTLEMENT DOCUMENTARY

MEDIATION PRESENTATION

placeholder - videos coming soon.jpeg

ABOUT SETTLEMENT DOCUMENTARIES: Settlement Documentaries can also be known as Settlement Brochures or Mediation Presentations. These documentary style productions could arguably be the most valuable because they aren’t bound to the same content restrictions as trial presentations. This is truly a priceless opportunity because you can begin negotiations not by sliding paper across the table, but rather presenting your clients and their families with a deep, and intimate portrayal of who they are and how they’ve suffered. The emotional effects of a properly produced Settlement Documentary can strike deep into the hearts of your opposition; defeating them on the inside; and making them far more willing to meet your demands.

PREVIOUS MEDIATION SUCCESS: I have successfully produced and presented this presentation format, and have seen the sobering effects it has on a room full of arrogant doctors; combative attorneys; and indifferent insurance representatives. If you want to take command of a mediation, and maximize your outcome, then I recommend we go to work on this immediately.

ATTORNEY ADVERTISING

SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING

This was a creative approach to engaging the local public, and promoting DUI services through his social media channels and website. Thousands of views has resulted in hundreds of new followers and increased public recognition for DUI services.

ADDITIONAL MARKETING VIDEOS: Following the success of this video, we then produced a series of frequently asked question videos purpose of online lead generation. The FAQ videos were short in length; relevant to his area of practice; and optimized for online search results. A teleprompter was used to efficiently deliver the intended messages.

SITE INSPECTION

DOCUMENTATION OF DAMAGES

placeholder - videos coming soon.jpeg

ABOUT SITE INSPECTION: A site inspection is a powerful way to bring your case to life. It’s often your case’s “ground zero”. It’s where the story happened. Site inspections / documentation of damages serve as foundation to craft a compelling narrative. They give your story authenticity, and add weight to your argument. When we can see where something happened, we then improve our ability to better understand, believe, and remember. Video has the power to transport an audience with a first-person experience, and can dramatically show the real consequences of negligent actions in ways photos can’t. The term site inspection is not limited to the location of an event. Site inspections can include the video documentation of damages of personal property; cleanup efforts; recoveries; demolitions; third-party investigations; circuit panel removals; data recorder removals; and more.

motion for presentation

SUMMARY JUDGEMENT 1.0

placeholder - videos coming soon.jpeg

WHY MSJ PRESENTATION: I was recently in deposition when an attorney expressed his frustration and discontent for the way a particular case was being followed by the court. The witness and opposing counsel had just left the room when he pounded the table with a clenched fist and growled. “I sent those documents over weeks ago, and the judge had no idea what I was talking about because he didn’t even read the damn motion!” he declared.

If this experience sounds familiar, then I’d like to have a conversation about your next MSJ. Using the written motion as the narrative, a teleprompter; and picture-in-picture presentation of the referenced exhibits, I believe we can create a simple, professional, and highly efficient presentation, and deliver it in the format that today’s millennial clerks prefer. . . VIDEO. There’s a good chance the reason the judge doesn’t know is because the clerks didn’t want to READ your motion.

This is a new concept I’m working on. Do you think it has value? Have a thought that might improve this approach? Am I wasting my time? Love to hear it. Shoot me an email, and tell me. If you’ve got a MSJ that might be a good for this project? Let’s go to work. Show your colleagues your ability to innovate.

DEMONSTRATIVEs

ACTIVITIES OF DAILY LIVING

ABOUT DEMONSTRATIVE PRESENTATIONS: Can also be known as a Day In The Life Video. While activities of Daily Living (ADL) can work as their own presentations, I’ve found they are best utilized when integrated into a settlement documentary. When integrated with interviews, ADL’s provide an opportunity for family members to comment on how assisting in these activities has affected their lives; how it makes them feel; and to show the contrast of the victims past and present day physical condition with older family photos and home videos.

EXAMPLE: I have produced several ADL videos, but do not have a public sample at this time.

RESULTS: I recently produced an ADL Presentation for counsel who was experiencing difficulty getting the carrier to move on a case. 10 days following delivery and review, the carrier offered the full policy limit of $1M.
