Make the Most of Courtroom Technology
Technology now permits the litigator to bring trial practice from paper and Styrofoam exhibit boards into the modern age.

Newman, a partner at Philadelphia's Feldman Shepherd Wohlgelernter Tanner & Weinstock, offers in-depth analysis of the hardware and software that will help you "wow" juries with tighter, more effective presentations.

Technology now permits the litigatorto bring trial practice into themodern age of remote controlsand liquid crystal displays. If you’re notready to give up paper and Styrofoamexhibit boards, consider the followingundeniable truths:
- We are living in an age where mostinformation is delivered in the form ofsound bites, video and photographs, primarilyvia television and the Internet.
- Jurors prefer to learn by seeing, not byhearing, because “seeing is believing.”
- Jurors have short attention spans; theyappreciate efficiency and loathe unnecessarydelay.
It has been my experience that technologymakes us more effective teachers andbetter advocates in the courtroom. It givesus better control of the evidence and makesus more efficient in our presentation.When used to create and present compellingdemonstrative exhibits, technologyenables us to convey complex concepts insimple terms. It also facilitates the summarypresentation of evidence at settlementconferences and mediations.
