eTrial Expands Brief-Lynx(TM) Technology to Streamline Documentation for Clients and Courtroom
DENVER, Aug. 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — While a particular legal position may appear simple, the evidence supporting it can be so complex that attorneys and expert witnesses have to dig through boxes of binders and documents to retrieve it. eTrial Communications Inc. is using its Brief-Lynx(TM) (http://www.brief-lynx.com) technology to place supporting testimony, legal authority, exhibits, analyses and much more right at the fingertips of attorneys and their clients with just the click of a mouse.
Attorneys use the Brief-Lynx technology to create hyperlinked e-briefs as well as presentations that link to graphics, exhibits and video or have graphics directly embedded with the links going to supporting documentation. “With Brief-Lynx, an attorney can respond immediately if someone challenges their graphics or expert testimony in court, but our technology isn’t just applicable to the courtroom,” said David Vanderport, president of eTrial. “Recent partnerships with technology firms, combined with the creative talents of our team, have allowed us to stretch the boundaries of what has typically been offered by trial service firms.”
For example, eTrial is now creating presentations for key documents, case outlines and maps, interactive timelines, closing binders, training manuals and much more. Attorneys link proposed graphics and evidential support to their oral argument outlines so that their clients can review and approve them prior to trial. Some attorneys send their clients case reports that are hyperlinked to the key evidence. “Once clients experience the savings in time and money, they keep expanding the way they use Brief-Lynx in their daily practice,” said Vanderport. “We have clients who are requesting hyperlinks in opening statements, closing arguments, expert reports, transcripts and various other internal and external presentations.”
Brief-Lynx also includes features, such as the ability to zoom and annotate to specific sections within the hyperlinked document, that not only save time for the reader, but can be used to record internal commentary right on the key aspect of the document itself. “eTrial consultants have been working with attorneys for the past few decades and our goal has always been to provide visuals that are clear, simple and easy to understand,” said Vanderport. “With these new developments, we’ve taken the way lawyers present evidence to a whole new level.”
