If you really want to put together a nicely presented and organized digital trial, check out some of the litigation software available.
I list timeline software toward the bottom (in my view timelines are extremely useful presentation tools).
Check out the following litigation software products:
- Lexbe: full SaaS trial presentation software with multiple visual presentation options including built-in time-lines.
- inData TrialDirector: full trial presentation software (integrates with Timeline Xpress) where all evidence, documents, transcripts, etc. are located and ready for visual presentation (via TV screen, monitor, and/or projector).
- TrialPro: full trial presentation software – features and benefits very nicely outlined on their Web site. One of the most informative Web sites I’ve reviewed.
- Sanction/Verdical: Sanction is the predecessor and you can still buy it. Verdical is trial and case management software as an all-in-one package.
- Verdict Systems: full trial presentation software.
- e-Court by Searchlight: enables paperless trial. Exhibits are simultaneously presented electronically to counsel, witnesses, jury and judge under the direction of the court clerk.
- iBlaze by Summation: track, store and organize all case materials for easy search and locate. Also quickly creates lists of documents with bates numbering (access iBlaze online with WeBlaze by Summation).

- briefs, pleadings, filings, hot documents and more—in a click,
