In general, our approach to litigation support involves the following items:

  • Review the history of the project and the current participants to ensure that Rincon does not have a conflict of interest in the case
  • Review the site data
  • Work with the lead attorney and with other experts to develop a coherent and comprehensive strategy
  • Provide deposition and in-court testimony

We understand that technical data can be complex and confusing to both a judge and jury. Knowing these difficulties inherent in litigation of technical issues, we work closely with attorneys to format the data in a way that can be readily understood by the general public. Through the appropriate use of graphics and the intelligent simplification of complex matters, we are able to provide our services in a way that clarifies technical issues. We believe that a client is poorly served if the technical issues and facts are not readily understood by all.
