Go Graphic in Mediation, Not Just in Trial


With only a small fraction of cases actually reaching trial, it behooves attorneys to treat mediation like trial and work up their case with maximum effort, which includes using visual presentations, animations and other litigation graphics to present their case in the most compelling, concise manner possible. This article, published in Plaintiff Magazine, covers tips on how to use visuals in mediation and the benefits to visually presenting a case. From PowerPoints to videos to animations and simulations to interactive PDFs and video briefs, this article covers the bases on how to go into mediation completely prepared and reach optimal results. At worst, if the case doesn't settle, then you're that much more ready for trial.
