Information Age Saps Jurors’ Attention

By Trey Cox
The National Law Journal
February 6, 2009

This is a great article that discusses the problems trial lawyers face and must compete with on a daily basis in the courtroom. Each day we are bombarded with thousands of messages craving our attention. Read the article to find out how a trial lawyer can deal with jurors who are so eager to check their blackberry phones that their minds are not on the trial.

“Juror 12 is adrift. It’s not that he doesn’t care about the contract dispute tediously unfolding in the courtroom. Who knows — he might be the kind of natural leader who can rally 11 wafflers behind closed doors during deliberations. The real problem with this hopelessly distracted juror is his irrepressible urge to grab his BlackBerry, manage his bloated e-mail folder and cram as much business as possible into each recess.”

Lawyer Advertisements: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Attorney Gyi Tsakalakis does a great review on lawyer advertisements that use video to get their message across. In his blog titled AttorneySync’s Blog on Marketing a Law Firm he compares three attorney videos.

Video Marketing Tips for Lawyers: No. 3 @ Law.com

Just published article #3 in a series of tips to help lawyers understand how to create online video. Importantly, in these series of articles, I discuss not just what to put in your lawyer videos, but more importantly, what not to do.

“What 99 percent of attorneys do not include in their videos: Information!

[This is the million-dollar video tip.]

In case you haven’t realized it, we’re in the Internet age. It is the information age. Potential clients go online to get, yes, you can say it, come on, say it with me: “information.” The more information you can give them, the greater chance you will have to be seen as the expert in your field of law. They get to know you through your informative video. By the time they are done watching your video, you have educated the viewer, and he or she will likely have more questions to ask about their particular matter.”

Testimonials

One thing I like about Lawyers Video Studio, is that it is work that is done largely by a lawyer – Gerry Oginski – who knows about law practice. He knows about clients, he knows what’s important to clients, and what kind of information is important to communicate. He’s also very technically astute and he has good technology and good people working with him, who have been very helpful in filming the videos that I have participated in. Gerry was very helpful in providing me with guidance on the tempo and how to present the subjects. I find Gerry’s guidance and direction to be very helpful. He helped me to think through what it is that the client needs to hear, what their perspective is, and to really focus the information on the audience. I would say that their process has been very useful, it’s been very informative. I feel like I have been very well guided in terms of how to go about the video process, how to think up the topics and how to present them. I would recommend Gerry Oginski’s video service.
