Huseby provides full-service support throughout the lifecycle of your trial with consultants that bring years of courtroom experience to your team. From the war room to the courtroom, with our assistance, your team can focus on strategy rather than how to present and display exhibits and video in court.
Captivate the jury with striking visuals that help illustrate and tell your story. We understand the importance of effectively communicating details and information in the courtroom. A growing percentage of the national jury pool is made up of younger "Generation X" and "Generation Y" jurors who are accustomed to learning visually. Our trial consultants will help ensure your case is well-organized, your exhibits, videos and graphics are presentation ready, and you are well-equipped technologically in the courtroom.

Video is a useful, strategic tool for your case preparation and presentation. Our video presentation technology allows for a more powerful and persuasive presentation. Only through video can you communicate non-verbal information, such as tone of voice, volume and body language.
The transcript is synchronized with the video and exhibits are hyperlinked for quick reference. Clips can easily be created and emailed or exported to your desktop, Summation, TrialDirector or directly into PowerPoint for an opening or closing statement. Creation of a clip library allows you to manage clips for trial and export multiple clips, or multi-segment clips at one-time. Video-transcript synchs are provided in LEF, SBF and/or XMEF formats for your convenience.
- Easily present video testimony for witness impeachment or for non-appearing witnesses

Courtroom and War Room
Many modern courtrooms are equipped for electronic presentations. When a courtroom does not have any modern automation Huseby will make sure you have the technology available necessary to present your case. The basic technology in a Huseby Trial Services courtroom includes a laptop, backup laptop, projector, projection screen, switches and external speakers. Flat panel screens and any additional technology, including SmartBoards and ELMOs, can be added to meet a client's needs.
Prior to trial Huseby will visit, test and create a full courtroom schematic to diagram the best possible layout and illustrate the relationship between components. Services include:
- Confirming the current technology in the courtroom, including internet capabilities
- Confirming the technology being installed meets with the court's approval and conforms with the court's pre-trial specifications
- Scheduling equipment set-up and tear-down with you and court officials
War Room Technology
A successful war room is critical to your case. Huseby technicians will provide the tools and technology your team needs to manage your trial. We can:
- Install mock trial technology similar to what will be available in the courtroom, including ancillary equipment such as laptops, scanners, copiers and printers
- Provide a live video and transcript text feed directly from the courtroom, including a private chatroom with counsel in the courtroom
- Gather exhibits and rehearse with the trial team before and after each day's session
Huseby Trial Services provides trial equipment rental to create sophisticated courtrooms throughout the United States. Our technicians will examine the courtroom to make certain that the selected equipment is appropriate to the space and clients have the technology needed to present your case. Once equipment is installed our trial technicians will ensure the technology is working properly and provide any training assistance needed to operate each piece of equipment.
