Process

The process of designing and building a trail model is straightforward. Experience has taught me to ask the right questions. I use a consultative approach - guiding clients through the entire process with the utmost attention to detail. From this process I can determine what needs to be built and where it fits into the case. Projects are typically completed in three phases illustrated below.


Phase 1

  1. Project starts with an initial consultation either in-person or by phone.
  2. I will then review and analyze exemplars, providing for a solid and accurate foundation. If needed, I will conduct site visit.
  3. A detailed project estimate will be drafted and submitted to the attorney for review and approval. Estimate will define project scope, project timeline for completion, important milestones, and precise isometric drawings for perspective and scale.

Phase 2

  1. Project build begins upon approval of estimate.
  2. Submission of a detailed illustration and visual checklist eliminates any confusion as to what the finished exhibit will be.
  3. Revisions and modifications are addressed and handled.
  4. Client receives regular status reports and budget reports during fabrication process.

Phase 3

  1. Project completed and delivered anywhere in the country.
  2. Delivered on-time and within budget
  3. Exhibits are guaranteed to be accurate, 3-dimensional, working models that project a powerful presence in the courtroom and strong visual for the jury.
