Sometimes, a full-bore presentation is neither required nor advisable.  Rather, all the attorney’s key points can be made within one well-designed graphic.

The following are some of the single-frame graphics that Jon consulted on, designed and produced for law firms throughout Virginia.
.

(1) Auto-Pedestrian Accident

A jogger was struck by an auto whose driver claimed he could not see the victim in advance, due to a curved roadway – and that by the time he saw the victim, it was too late.

Jon was retained by the Ritchie Law Firm, representing the victim,  to develop a single graphic to show that the physical characteristics of the roadway proved the driver was either mistaken, or misrepresenting the facts.

Result: With the aid of the graphic Jon produced (below), Ritchie Law Firm was able to obtain a pre-trial settlement from the defendant’s insurance carrier.

(2) Wal-Mart vs. Alleged Shoplifters

Several British nationals were shopping at a Wal-Mart in Staunton, VA, when they were escorted by security guards to an office for questioning regarding alleged shoplifting.  The police were called, and a criminal prosecution began.  Yet when Wal-Mart was asked to provide the video recordings upon which its complaint was filed, it reported that all of the video cameras in the areas of the store in question had malfunctioned.

Jon was retained by The Law Firm of Charles Weber, representing the defendants, to develop an overhead graphic of the store, to identify the locations of all the cameras, and demonstrate the unlikelihood of every one of them malfunctioning at the same time.

Result: With the aid of the graphic Jon produced (below), Mr. Weber was able to secure a not guilty jury verdict for the defendants.


(3) Tractor Trailer vs. Auto Collision

A semi-tractor plowed into the rear of a passenger vehicle traveling in the far right lane along I-64 near Charlottesville, VA.

Jon was retained by the Ritchie Law Firm, representing the victim, to visit the accident site, obtain measurements, take photos, and develop a single graphic to show the positions of the skid marks and the final position of the vehicles.

Result: With the aid of the graphic Jon produced (below), Ritchie Law Firm was able to obtain a pre-trial settlement from the defendant’s insurance carrier.

(4) Graphic analysis of assassination scene & sequence of events

A beloved officer with the Israeli Defense Forces was assassinated in a cross-border ambush by a Lebanese general, who ordered a sniper to attack him without provocation.  The news media unquestioningly accepted Lebanon’s lies about the event.  The graphic that was being used at the time to depict where the incident occurred was very inadequate for its purpose.

Jon reached out to a contact in the Israeli government and volunteered to create a definitive graphic about this event, to show that Lebanon had, in fact, assassinated this IDF officer – and to aid his family should they decide to sue the government of Lebanon for this act.

Result: Jon’s graphic was deemed by his contact to be highly accurate. Soon after completion, it was distributed to some of the news media that misreported this story, and was utilized by a blog in a detailed report on the incident.
