Expertise to Optimize Your Result

  • They have the right technology, the right personnel and the right attitude… we get no trouble and no drama.

    — James O. Williams —
  • One thing that I think sets Visual Evidence apart from other companies is that the trial presentation specialists have a lot of experience in the court room. You’re not going to get that with anybody else.

    — Ed Ricci, Jr. —
  • When I need to have a really strong, big impact video presentation that’s going to help set the tone for the mediation, I call Visual Evidence.

    — R.Sia Baker-Barnes —
  • The blow ups were so good I was able to get the Plaintiff to come way down from their demand and settled the case.

    — Kristin M. Miller, Esq. —
  • When I don’t need to think about the technology and I can just focus on my deposition, that’s a success for me and it’s always been a successful result with Visual Evidence.

    — Cyrus Niakan —
  • I know that you will commit yourself to achieving the best possible work product while focusing on exceeding our firm’s needs and deadlines.

    — Christian D. Searcy —
  • Visual Evidence always has the people, the right technicians on time, all the right equipment, everything that we’ve asked for over the years has been there.

    — David Prather —
  • We’ve all watched the technology change through the years. Visual Evidence was one of the first ones to start videoconferencing that saved a lot of money for our clients.

    — Nancy LaVista —
  • They’re creative. They’re proactive. They bring ideas to the table that you never think about as an everyday practicing trial lawyer. They’re part of the team that brings you ideas that you need, not only in hopefully getting a case resolved, but in trying a case and maximizing the potential of at case.

    — Mike Haggard —
  • It was a very challenging case and the material from Visual Evidence did a phenomenal job for our client and without that material, we never would have been able to achieve the results we did for our client. And it was an investment that paid off in huge returns.

    — Vincent Leonard —
  • Witnesses vanish. Memories fade. So, with the help of Visual Evidence, we’re able to preserve evidence, preserve pictures, preserve scenes, accident scenes, client testimonials, witness testimonials, and medical treatment. It helps us tremendously to resolve cases early on, as well as to present to the jury exactly what happened and what is happening.

    — Mitch Panter —
  • The help and technology of Visual Evidence truly allows me to keep my theme developed, keep on track, and go through it step by step. I don’t think I could do that on my own, and I certainly have never been able to prior to obtaining the services of Visual Evidence.

    — Darla Keen —
  • As always, your help was instrumental in getting the most value for the case.

    — Robert R. Reynolds IV —
  • It was an excellent production and thanks to all of your input, I believe this is a compelling case and the documentary puts our case in the positive light that it should be shown.

    — Brett Panter —
  • I just want to thank Visual Evidence — they were their usual top-notch professionals, made the expert very comfortable in the process, and had a terrific grasp of the case issues to open the door to all of the pertinent areas we needed. This should be a huge asset to the mediation presentation!!

    — Diane Dulcie —
  • The Settlement Documentary was excellent! Your staff did an absolutely superb job with interviews of liability experts and damage witnesses. The case settled at mediation!

    — David D. Guiley —
  • Couldn’t get to mission accomplished without Visual Evidence.

    — Scott Smith —
