A Benefit of Hiring A Trial Technologist is if they are experienced and competent, you will receive some great services and benefits. One of the most important of these is we spend more time in trial than most attorneys do. While we may not know the in’s and out’s of the law, we see the real world strategies and their results on a monthly basis. Many times, I get hired on a case that is very similar to one that I have previously worked. I can then give suggestions of what another attorney’s strategy was, and whether or not it was effective.
When you are in the heat of the battle you can always use another opinion. A Benefit of Hiring A Trial Technologist’s opinion is one that is more of an outside view. While we strive to do everything in our power to help bring positive results for our clients, we have no monetary interest vested in the outcome. We also don’t typically know the minute details of your case, which gives us a more independent view of how testimony is going. Our opinions might not be the correct one, but having a different person’s point of view is always helpful.
