What is visual strategy?
Visual strategy is a comprehensive approach to litigation that synthesizes case development with communication. Use visual strategy to zero in on what a case is about and present it to the jury in a way they can understand, learn, remember, and care about.
How will visual strategy benefit my clients?
Using visual strategy, you will develop your cases more efficiently. You will understand your cases better. You will communicate and persuade more effectively. Your clients are the ultimate beneficiaries of this evolution.
What do you do?
For over 16 years, I have consulted with law firms around the country to develop visual strategy for cases. As a consultant, my work spec is one week, one case, ideally early in the case development process. You can learn more about what I do on my visual strategy consulting website.
Can I book a visual strategy session with you?
I am typically booked at least a year in advance for my week-long visual strategy sessions. For this reason, I created these CLE legal education courses so that trial lawyers can benefit immediately from visual strategy techniques.
