In the courtroom and during depositions, visual aids can be useful. However, it is important to use them in the right way so that they support your case and can be used as part of the official record created by your court reporter in San Jose. If you plan to use visual aids as part of a deposition or trial, these tips will help.
Be sure the visual aids you create are in a form that can be presented to a jury and to the opposing counsel. If you simply make notes on a whiteboard, the court reporter may not be able to include it in the court transcript, and you won’t be able to make your aid part of the official court record for use by the judge and jury if the case goes to trial. If you have questions about presenting visual aids as part of a legal or court deposition, your court reporter may be able to offer helpful advice.
