Above and beyond...
A plaintiff’s attorney called with the following request. Defense counsel’s expert was going to conduct a high-voltage electrical experiment designed to recreate the circumstances that lead to the happening of the subject accident and prove that his client had no liability.

The attorney not only wanted to videotape the expert performing this experiment, but wanted us to keep a verbatim record of the experiment as it happened and furnish a transcript.

The only problem was that the experiment had to be conducted outdoors -- in a parking lot -- with 18-wheel tractor trailers passing close by. Not conducive for a videographer to do his best work – and impossible for a court reporter.

We rented a van for the event, and spent the weekend before the event retrofitting the interior so that the videorapher could operate from within the van. We removed the back seats to create space for the court reporter to sit and listen through headphones. All the participants were outfitted with wireless microphones and the experiment was conducted without a hitch. Except for the expert, whose experiment went awry and proved the plaintiff’s attorney’s case for him.

That's what we do.
