The attorneys at Otten & Joyce, LLP have handled high profile cases and understand the unique issues associated with these types of matters—added layers of media, privacy and security issues can complicate the legal landscape. Our attorneys have represented actors, professional athletes, and even a superior court judge, and have had several cases covered by the press. Privacy is of utmost importance to the firm. The attorneys at Otten & Joyce, LLP understand the importance of technology in the modern practice of law. Programs such as Concordance and CaseMap, when used correctly, can substantially reduce the cost of litigation and give the client a competitive advantage over the competition.
Most cases at Otten & Joyce, LLP are initially set up in a program called CaseMap. This is a searchable database that allows attorneys to manage information efficiently and avoid the duplication of efforts that occurs when practicing law the old fashioned way. Our attorneys further understand how to design and build searchable databases to manage document intensive cases and multi-party litigation. What used to cost hundreds of thousands of dollars can now be done for a fraction of the cost with modern technology and outsourcing the scanning of documents.
With the numerous legal shows on television and in the movies, the public has come to expect attorneys to use state of the art mechanisms to present evidence. The attorneys at Otten & Joyce are highly accomplished at using technology in the presentation of a client’s case. A good example of this is the use of three dimensional visualization of the fate and transport of environmental contamination in the soil and groundwater.
