Now is the time for litigators to sharpen their knives and thoroughly prepare their war chests for trial. Experienced litigation attorneys in Miami, Broward, and West Palm Beach understand that visuals and demonstratives increase a juror's capacity to understand and retain information presented to them at trial.
