In today’s world, people demand instant gratification, visual stimulation and are used to consuming information from a screen.  Managing how information is presented has never been more important to an attorney than during trial.  Using exhibit boards to show a few key documents or drawing on flip pads will no longer impress a jury.  Jurors now want to have every exhibit introduced or reference displayed, with key text blown up or highlighted.  Instead of listening to portions of deposition testimony being read, jurors now want to see the video deposition played.  Any significant point that is made by an attorney or witness now needs to be accompanied by a demonstrative exhibit.

Creating and presenting evidence in a manner that makes jurors feel engaged in the trial process requires technical and artistic talent, and most important, a significant amount of time.  The days and weeks leading up to trial, attorneys are busy preparing witnesses, assembling exhibits and preparing examination outlines.  The last thing they have time for is coming up with a presentation theme or creating a flashy demonstrative slide.  Having a partner they can trust to handle this work can give an attorney great peace of mind not to mention an enormous advantage.

Computing Source’s Presentation and Trial teams are led by:


  • I’ve been in the legal industry for over 30 years.  As a former litigation paralegal, I know what it is like to work on a case for years and get caught up in the complexity of working up a case for trial.  As a former owner of Evidence Express, a leading demonstrative evidence firm, I have helped hundreds of lawyers tell their story using compelling, persuasive graphics.   Making the complex simple takes time, creativity and hard work.  We  help the attorney explore and decide what facts fit and which story lines are most persuasive.  Our creative team helps develop visual aides to emphasize the key evidence but more importantly, provide simple and persuasive themes.  In simplicity, there is power.

    Erik Schwartz, Computing Source, Director of Trial Technology
  • I work for an all-in-one litigation support firm that handles complex issues ranging from forensic collection, hosted environments (with an agnostic approach that fits our client’s needs), electronic discovery, scanning, and copies/blow back, to our trial director team sitting in the hot seat, or creating demonstratives for our clients. I recognize right now isn't the ideal place to meet, but I'm often in your building multiple times a day working with your firm & would love the opportunity to formally meet with you to further introduce my company and to potentially see if there might be an opportunity for us to work together.  I promise to leave the boring sales pitch at the office and I won't take up more than 5 minutes of your time!
