"I thought you might like to hear this and pass on a “thank you and well done” to everyone else who worked on this. The last of 27 co-defendants pled guilty yesterday on this case. We like to believe it is partially due to seeing how prepared we were and how professional Trial Director presented the wiretap phone calls."
"Thank you very much for all your hard work and dedication to assisting our office! It is greatly appreciated!"

"TrialDirector is the absolute best legal presentation product on the market. I have been in the trial presentation business for 15 years, and have been never seen any other product come close to it. I am often exposed to other applications being told "it's so easy" or "it's so much better" only to find it lacks some critical element that only someone who's in the "Hot-Seat" regularly would appreciate, and expect.
"This comment was unsolicited. I just felt like patting you guys on the back."

"We just tried a case with TrialDirector 5, the newest version of TrialDirector from inData. It was fantastic, especially because we (our client) won and were awarded 100% of the requested damages! We had a six (6) day trial in court that went extremely well, and we had no issues at all with TrialDirector 5. The new waveform clip editor saved me a bunch of time in modifying DVT clips, which I really appreciated!!! Overall, I found that preparing for the case in the new integrated all-in-one program was extremely easy and seemed to help speed the entire process along. We are very pleased with TrialDirector Version 5!"

"Holland & Hart has been using TrialDirector for over ten years now. We continue to use TrialDirector because of the features, flexibility and fair cost structure. We have used TrialDirector in court, day after day, to pull up a full range of media from the usual scanned documents to complex 3D animations and even QuickTime Virtual Reality files, before they were widely known. The results have been several multi-million dollar wins in both plaintiff and defense work.
"In one case in Texas, the ease in bringing up a deposition clip, in which the witness bragged about getting misbegotten money "lost" in the Cayman Islands, helped convince the jury to award our clients $108 million. And just a few months ago, our firm was victorious against one of the largest chemical companies in the world, who was represented by much bigger and more famous firms. We used TrialDirector, but the other side used a competing package. The difference has been, in part, reflected by the $113 million dollar judgment in our favor.
"What more can I say, but that we just upgraded to the new TrialDirector Version 5.0 and are excited to put all its new features and integrated interface to use in all our upcoming trials. Keep up the good work inData and thanks!"

"TrialDirector is simple to learn and simple to use. A 'must have' for any attorney who prefers to pay attention during trial instead of fumbling for his next exhibit."

"In today's litigation world, it's absolutely essential to be able to make a professional, clear, and strong presentation of evidence at settlement and trial. TrialDirector has become a central piece of our arsenal. At mediation, we use it to show the other side that we can, and will, try the case. At trial, it allows our attorneys to really show the jury our case and, hopefully, show the other side they should have put more money on the table at mediation.
"Our most recent case using TrialDirector resulted in a total combined settlement/verdict of $3.2 million dollars. TrialDirector and the inData support staff get our vote for the top litigation software and services on the market!"

"Most of my clients are in Los Angeles, the land of entertainment. If they ever have any questions about using TrialDirector, I ask them: 'Are you going to read your kids Star Wars or take them to the movie? That's how you have to think about what you're saying to the jury, because the jury wants to be visually stimulated.' If they're still uncertain, I'll tell them bluntly: 'Heaven help you if you go up against counsel with TrialDirector. You're going to lose.'
"TrialDirector gives my clients immediate access to essential data. If there's a crucial, make or break exhibit, you can bring it up instantaneously. In the heat of trial, my client can say, 'Frank, please bring up Exhibit Five.' Boom, there it is. There's great power in that. In a recent case involving a hospital, the plaintiff was offered a settlement to go away. The plaintiff declined, and went forward with a suit for $1,500,000. At the end of the trial, she was awarded zero; to make matters even worse, her counsel was handed the defense counsel's costs, including my fee!"

"I was engaged in the recent trial between the City of Anaheim and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. In the trial -in which the City of Anaheim contested that the team's new name was a violation of the intent of the naming clause of the lease agreement -a crucial exhibit was the 80-page Lease Agreement itself. The robust multi-zone capabilities of TrialDirector let me keep crucial pages of the agreement on one side of the screen, and at the same time, present supporting exhibits in up to three more zones, for a total of four pages at one time.
"The ability to use the full-screen callout and annotation features on any one of those pages made it very easy to create solid persuasive presentations with very little effort. In addition, inData's versatile "Find" feature allowed me to find the specific documents I needed very quickly. By adding information in the description field (such as lease paragraph references or the lease page numbers, which differed from the actual exhibit page numbers), I was able to find and display the right exhibits fast, regardless of whether the attorney called out a paragraph number, Lease page number or exhibit page number."

"In our TV driven, Internet-accessed culture, computer technology has insinuated itself into courtrooms. Some cases demand it, and juries expect it. When used to enhance and complement rather than replace and supplant our presentations, technology makes us even more persuasive. Instructing our students in the use of TrialDirector helps put them on the cutting edge of courtroom technology -and courtroom performance. Our goal is to eventually have all 168-second year law students be TrialDirector-literate. Each student will be required to use the software during several classes and their end of the semester mock jury trial."
