About Us


Courtroom Animation is an animation and legal graphics studio that creates scientifically-accurate and highly realistic 3D forensic animations, with locations in Los Angeles, Denver, Tennessee, and Atlanta. Our visual exhibits have been used in thousands of cases and have helped our clients achieve favorable legal outcomes in mediations, arbitrations, and various trial settings.

We were founded on the idea that seeing is believing.

The best way to tell a story is to show it.

We founded Courtroom Animation to solve a significant problem in the legal industry: The difficulty in conveying legal arguments through the use of text, verbal testimony, and other non-visual methods.  We saw attorneys pour months of hard work into cases, only to have jurors not understand the key points of their argument. We saw expert witnesses take the stand for hours, delivering thorough and complex material that jurors struggled to grasp. Seeing these challenges led us to establish an innovative studio that creates world class animations to better communicate legal arguments to various stakeholders in the litigation process, leading to more successful outcomes for our clients.

We’ve achieved a 99% Admittance Rate across 2,000+ cases, delivering over $1 billion in results.

Simply put, the human brain processes and comprehends visual information much better than non-visual methods. Why?:

  • 90% of the information processed by the brain is visual
  • Visual information can be processed up to 60,000 times faster than text
  • Humans remember up to 80% of what they see, 10% of what they hear and 20% of what they read.
  • 3 days after being presented with a piece of information, humans only remember 10% of it.  However, when that information is combined with a visual, humans remember 65%.

With these statistics in mind, incorporating visual exhibits into your litigation process has a powerful impact on the outcome of your case.  Visuals give your jury or mediator the ability to comprehend complicated materials and technical information of your case. They enable your audience to better remember key elements and data points of legal arguments that take hours to present. 

The bottom line – visuals are an invaluable asset for lawyers to win cases and to achieve favorable legal outcomes.
