Trial Support Services: What They Are and Why You Need Them
Feb 20 2017 | posted by LORR Team
“Trial support services” is one of those terms that gets tossed around a lot among legal professionals. Yet, while many people discuss the topic, surprisingly few understand what it refers to. So in this post, we would like to summarize what we offer and how it can help your firm succeed.
An Extension of Outsourcing
To some, outsourcing is an emotion-laden topic that stirs up images of laid-off American workers and shuttered factories. In reality, however, the term refers to a very simple yet very powerful principle: that people are at their best when they focus on what they do well. That, in short, is what trial support services are all about.
Here’s what we mean:
• The typical law school curriculum deals with topics like case history, legal theory, and principles of logic. This only makes sense. After all, building and presenting well-grounded arguments is at the heart of the legal profession. However, this approach to legal education gives scant attention to the nuts and bolts of creating a case. That is where we come into the picture. We focus on the nitty-gritty details that rob you of the time you need to deal with large-scale priorities.
• Of course, you could hire a staff of experts in such diverse fields as records retrieval, web design, video production, IT, and graphic arts. But doing so would impose grievous financial burdens on your clients. It would also force you to assume immense responsibilities in addition to your existing workload.
• As economists will tell you, it makes far more sense to outsource these tasks to a trial support services provider like LORR. You will benefit by having less on your plate to worry about. Your client will benefit by having access to the skills of a diverse set of experts to assist in every aspect of case preparation and presentation. And your firm will benefit by gaining desirable outcomes and earning a reputation for success.
