The Importance of Court Exhibits
At Lipcon, Margulies & Winkleman, P.A., our maritime lawyers thoroughly prepare each case as though they are headed to trial. While settlement is often a preferred option, thorough preparation means that we are always ready at every court-mandated deadline.
For cases that do not settle and are ultimately headed to trial, the trial team must prepare the critical facts and evidence for presentation. As a plaintiff’s firm, Lipcon, Margulies & Winkleman, P.A., has the burden to establish facts that meet certain legal minimums. The judge instructs the jurors of the burden of proof when they are tasked with rendering a final verdict.
This evidentiary burden makes the job of the choosing the right maritime lawyer to handle your case all the more critical. Although you and your attorney may understand the facts of your case, what matters is how well the court and jury understands that information. Thus, it is imperative that the litigation team focuses on easy-to-understand ways of presenting complex concepts and information such as visual aids and demonstrative exhibits. The skills of your trial lawyer in presenting information to the court and jury can make or break your case.

Common Law Meets Modern Law
As a maritime law firm, many of the legal principles we deal with on a daily basis find their roots in the British common law of the sea. Admiralty and maritime law are rooted in centuries-old legal proceedings. Our maritime lawyers are acutely aware that the laypeople, judges and law clerks, often have minimal, if any, exposure to the maritime trade. Even the simplest aspects of life, when converted into the nautical language of cruising, can be confusing to a jury. Demonstrative exhibits and visual aids are an excellent way to tell a story, convey key trial themes and explain complex facts.
