“I have worked with Jim Gripp for almost thirty years and he just keeps getting better! Jim is masterful at conveying themes, storylines, and perspectives on how one should view the evidence through the graphics he creates. Jim is particularly gifted with intellectual property matters where he reduces technical concepts into easy-to-understand graphics that jurors quickly embrace. Jim is tireless and he produces valuable work product time and time again. I highly recommend Jim.”
“It is the less tangible services that you provide, including your insightful consultation and concepts, and your team-member approach, that make you stand out from your competitors and keep me coming back to Legal Arts.”
“I believe that your early-on involvement in this case was the key to the development of demonstrative exhibits that would have been extremely effective in trial. However, as it turned out, they provided the defense team with the added confidence to negotiate with strength to realize a settlement amount that represented a tiny fraction of the original demand.”
“I thought a 2D-diagram of the accident scene was the perfect solution until your consultant recommended a 3D version. Doing so conclusively showed that plaintiff’s story was inconsistent and unreliable. After showing your work to opposing counsel, it motivated them to visit the accident scene, and to immediately settle the case for no payment whatsoever by my client. Thanks for the great ideas and execution. Both sides were impressed with the quality, clarity, and effectiveness of your exhibits.”
“I would like to thank you for your help during this matter. The mediator was specifically quite complimentary about the PowerPoint/video presentations and commented that ‘you guys did a lot of work.’ I believe they were part of a very successful defense presentation that had a significant impact on the results obtained at the mediation. You put in a lot of work, including weekend activity, and it was greatly appreciated. Our carrier is very happy and that the confidential settlement was an amount that was significantly less than the demand.”
“The lead attorney said that the work that [graphics consultant Jim Gripp] is doing is ‘elite’ work (never heard that one before in my 21 years doing this!) and ‘way better than anything else they experienced!!”
“I always felt the quality of your work, your creativity, accessibility, and responsiveness were above reproach.”
“First, I would like to thank all of you for your outstanding work product in the Cahill electric shock matter. Without your quality services and efforts, there is no way that SDG&E would have been successful in obtaining such an outstanding verdict.”
“Your demonstrative advice and assistance were so helpful in turning a complex case into a simple one. We also marveled at your complete evening/early morning responses to our last-minute requests. Finally, there was no doubt Jim’s assistance in observing and commenting on my ‘mock’ opening helped crystalize several themes and methods of presentation for the entire case.”
“I wanted to let you know that we received Judge Lewis’s tentative decision in this matter today. We prevailed on all issues. Thanks to Jim and your entire team for their excellent help. Your work, which was not only very creative but also timely and on budget, was invaluable in clearly explaining some very complicated factual and legal issues in an extremely important, high stakes case. You will be hearing from me next time I need demonstrative aids.”
“The professionals at Legal Arts are and were an extremely talented and creative group in helping the trial lawyers achieve our goals and their teamwork and dedication and commitment to doing whatever it took, including all night work sessions with quality and quick turn-around time made them a vital part of the trial team.”
“The trial went well! The Chronology of Events exhibit was placed right in front of the Judge during my opening statement and he followed it closely which really helped put the matter in sequence and perspective. After the Plaintiff was testifying for half a day the judge looked at him and his attorney and said, ‘you better settle this case’ and we did very favorably to ACE. Thanks to you and your team for all your hard work!”
“I’m pleased to tell you that we obtained a Plaintiff’s verdict in this case in excess of $3.3 million… the exhibits were so accurate that the defense could not question the foundation for any [after-market automotive parts] component depicted in the illustrations. Your work on this case was instrumental in us obtaining this result.”
“This is truly an outstanding presentation for a well-deserved Medal of Honor upgrade for Captain Pipes I only wish we had more information when the recommendation for the original Silver Star was made. Thanks for the interactive presentation and especially thank you for your effort on behalf of Captain Pipes and thereby the men of Bravo Company [Khe Sanh].”
