Testimonials

"The best in the country at producing and displaying trial evidence. I have used them in three large trials in the last three years, and I am still amazed at how good they are."

Brian B. O' Neill

"Tim Piganelli has been consulting to attorneys since 1993 when I first met him. He has a national reputation as a leader in trial presentation and is one of the pioneers in this field."

Michael Arkfeld

"From 2002, until I retired in 2015, I have been co-teaching a course I created with Tim Piganelli entitled “Computer-Assisted Litigation.” Tim has been an excellent teacher to the law students, not only in sharing his top-flight expertise in legal software, but also in sharing his extensive knowledge and experience in trial work, strategic use of litigation technology, and real world application of the Federal Rules of Evidence and Civil Procedure. I have been a law school professor teaching Civil Procedure and Evidence for the last 27 years and was a litigator in a large firm before that. I can tell you that he is the most knowledgeable trial consultant in the country."

Professor Fred Galves

"Tim Piganelli not only assisted me with the strategy of my case, he understood the case so well that we hired him to play the adverse attorney in a mock trial we conducted. His talents go far beyond the creating and designing litigation graphics and assisting with trial presentation. From analyzing case issues to development visual themes for your opening statement, Tim is a must have for your case."
