Cogent Legal was voted the Best Courtroom Presentation Provider in The Recorder's 2013 survey of legal service providers.
Morgan Smith (Cogent Legal’s president and founder) has a real advantage over others in this field because he actually tried cases. He can make graphics not only effective with the audience, but also able to withstand objections and get admitted into evidence. Moreover, he can think tactically, and that is how he distinguishes himself.
I have always felt that every case, even the most technically arcane, can make for an engaging story. I found that Cogent Legal shares this belief and is why they are our trial team's go-to source for help with legal graphics. Enjoyable to work with, Cogent’s graphics team takes the time to truly grasp the case issues, working hard to best convey the messages we need judge and jury to understand. They engage very well with the trial team to help focus, conceptualize and visually convey the critical ideas to our arguments in a clear, concise and simple manner. Communication with our legal team is excellent—expectations are met and exceeded.
