When utilizing trial graphics in the courtroom, portraying details of what happened and when these incidents happened can be the evidence that favorably tips the scale for a judge or jury. Sometimes the calculation of a few minutes might make a difference in a case; other times the total number of years from point A to point Z might be the winning detail. When we create graphical presentations where timing is crucial, we evaluate what the attorney indicates is the most important information regarding the chronology of events and build a custom timeline. Aside from exhibits and depositions, timelines are the most common strategic evidence used in trials. Even when a case does not require numerous or complex legal graphics, timelines are an excellent tool to use when you want to reveal the “big picture.”
Our clients often use the timeline demonstratives we have created as road maps for their case. It is much easier to keep jurors’ full attention if they can follow along with a visual that builds, day by day, before their eyes. Whether the timelines are stand-alone demonstratives or within graphical presentations, they are excellent tools for simplifying the main point as well as validating the facts with exhibit numbers that are referenced on each entry.
From beginning to end, we listen carefully to your story, gather a thorough understanding of your case’s goals, arrange data in a favorable format, and build a timeline that reveals the winning, streamlined information that will help you prove your argument.
