MILOfest 2010 Ron Elkins on Using iPad in Trial

Filed under: Conferences | Tags: , |

Ron Elkins gave a terrific presentation at MILOfest (Macs in Law Offices) 2010 on how he uses iPads to create a slam dunk trial presentation and cut costs for his office.

Planet10tech caught up with Ron after the presentation for quick run down.

    if someone was using an ipad in trial, I would consider them at a disadvantage

    there are better tools

    • TomaszStasiuk

      Not if you were going up against Ron :)
      Ron: Red.
      Red: Ron.
      But alright Red, don’t think you can can just throw a grenade into a room and just walk away. Nuh-uh! You need to bring some knowledge, not just throw down the disparagements. :)

      What’s better than an iPad in trial?

      • Red

        TrialDirector, Sanction, PowerPoint, Keynote, as well as TrialSmart

        Those are all better

        There, that was easy

        I can give a list of 50 things as well the iPad does not from a technical aspect that any of those applications have

        Trying one-day or 1/2 day cases is one thing, but for those of us that are in trial for weeks at a time, it’s laughable to use an iPad to store and display data

        • TomaszStasiuk

          Do you want to do a guest spot on your favorite trial software?

      • Red

        Also, the video will not play

        At all, tried several times

        • TomaszStasiuk

          Plays fine here. It’s youtube hosted so I don’t know why I can play it and you can’t.

  • Steve Weaver

    I am waiting on “Red” to do his guest spot. I would also like to hear how long he tried the iPad and the specific issues he had.

      That would be awesome, but he has not taken me up on the offer. No one HAS to agree with me on this site. I want people to share what works.
