From my offices in Napa Valley, I work with plaintiff firms across the country to develop visual strategy for litigation.
I have provided assistance on nearly 400 cases, including some of history’s largest verdicts and settlements.
Once you earn the jurors’ trust, you have their permission to teach why your case matters.
Only then will jurors take action.
Half of the brain’s resources are devoted to processing visual information. Humans are visual, emotional storytellers. Yet many lawyers spend their entire time speaking, with few or no visuals.
Jurors are faced with an unrelenting barrage of intimidating, overwhelming data. When your presentation includes verbal and visual communication together, juror attention and retention are exponentially enhanced. Visual strategy is essential for jurors to understand, learn, remember, and care. Show, don’t tell.
Visual strategy means giving the jurors what they need, when they need it, to reach the conclusions you want.
My backgrounds in cognitive science, journalism, the gambling industry, advertising, and graphic design have given me a unique and highly relevant skill set for litigation strategy.
I combine exceptional design, editing, and writing with real-world insights on decision-making and emotion to distill your case themes into an effective visual strategy.
I’ll tell you the difficult truths about your case, and then I’ll help you resolve them, providing tangible, ready-to-use tools that address the toughest case issues.
Hundreds of cases later in nearly every state, history has demonstrated that my contributions produce results.
My work spec is one case per week, 20 hours live via Zoom (5 hours/day for 4 days) .
In a dynamic and fast-paced process, together we unpack and solve your case’s tough issues while I create interrelated and interdependent demonstrative exhibits in real time. At the conclusion of the work session, you’ll receive a suite of custom trial-ready exhibits that provide a comprehensive storytelling model for your case.
Visual strategy works for every kind of case. Please schedule early in the case development, not on the eve of trial; your visual strategy work session should be before the close of discovery.
I am fully booked until 2024. If you would like to be added to my wait list, or to be notified about booking opportunities in 2024 or beyond, please contact me. I am available for presentations at select Continuing Legal Education events, and read on to learn more about my visual strategy CLE courses.
I’ve launched my Trial Strategy Academy, featuring my first three Visual Strategy Continuing Legal Educations (CLE) courses exclusively for trial lawyers and their teams:
These content-rich courses teach visual strategy from the ground up and are designed to profoundly impact the results you’ll achieve for your clients.
My courses earn State Bar of California Continuing Legal Education credits. Many states recognize State Bar of California CLE credits; check with your State Bar. Learn more about my visual strategy CLE courses and enroll today.
