Litigation Technology: Court Services Brings Tech to the Courtroom

Posted By on Wed, Nov 14, 2012 at 11:00 AM

While the legal field still does most things based on time-honored decorum, today's juries expect technological sophistication in the courtroom.

Technology has permeated every part of our society, so juries expect the presentation of cases to be as sophisticated and up-to-date as their smart phones.

Bringing technology into modern litigation gives a modern jury the chance to see and absorb a much more interactive set of data.

Savvy lawyers can easily integrate PowerPoint presentations and other multimedia into their case, but a steadily growing field is in litigation technology support.

Litigation technology is a game-changer, leveling the playing field between the sides of cases. From a graphic timeline of events to the ability to see video testimony concisely and effectively, it can be a persuasive and powerful tool.

And of course, sometimes courtroom facilities themselves can be a problem.

While Memphis' Federal courthouse has full technology integration with state-of-the-art equipment like touchscreens, laptop inputs at attorney and witness stands and document cameras, the Shelby County courthouse offers much less technology. Court Services provides a full courtroom set-up with projectors, screens, monitors, document cameras, and necessary cabling.

While the rules of civil procedure remain unchanged, litigators need to bridge the gap between tradition and technology.

That's what we do at Court Services Inc.

Lynsey Mitchell is president of Court Services Inc., a litigation technology team and a member of Oculus Litigation Technology Group, both based in Memphis serving clients nationwide.
