Melvin Dubinsky, a trial attorney in New York City, had his article “Making The Most Of Graphics For Trial” featured in the August 2012 edition of The Practical Lawyer. In an increasingly computer-dependent and image-saturated world, the use of trial graphics has never been easier or more beneficial. Mr. Dubinsky’s article presents actual examples from his trials to show that the use of demonstrative evidence in tort cases can sway jurors to decide in favor of a client or spur opposing counsel to offer a much higher amount for settlement.
A jury’s perception of the facts is paramount for winning a trial. Mr. Dubinsky tells about the nature of the case ‘on trial,’ why the type of evidence used was the best choice for what he was trying to prove, and how he used it in a way that had the most resonance with the jury.
His article is now available for free viewing online, with the same color graphics that he used as evidence, at this address: http://dubinskytrialatty.com/article.html
