Professional and cost-effective Solutions for your unique needs.
It’s no secret that litigation — whether for an injury-related civil case or a criminal matter involving multiple plaintiffs and defendants — can involve a vast amount of discovery adding up to terabytes of data, including documents, audio, video, and converted data from a variety of sources. Gathering and indexing all the data into a well-organized, easily accessible collection of relevant information can be challenging, frustrating, and time-consuming. We can help handle complex discovery, that can include:
- Title 3 wiretaps and jail calls (T-III)
- Surveillance videos
- Proprietary video and audio players from things like ATM Cameras, Pole Cameras, Hawk Players, and many more
- Video Depositions
- Synced Transcripts with Audio or video
- Cellphone and mobile device dumps (Cellebrite Reports)
- Non-Searchable Documents
- Unknown file types
- And many more

Litigation analytics give attorneys valuable insight into the judges and courts their cases will appear in and a greater understanding of the other lawyers across the table. An easy-to-grasp analysis of the characteristics of the trial judge and information about some typical trial strategies of the opposing counsel can help lawyers better prepare their exhibits and devise strategies to prepare for trial.

Criminal Litigation Support
We support criminal defense attorneys at hearings and trials for single defendant matters and multi-defendant mega-cases, on both the state and federal levels. No case is too big or too small to engage a competent litigation support firm. We offer competitive market rates and discount rates for court-appointed and indigent clients.
Criminal defense cases endure unique challenges from complex and voluminous discovery to in-court management of hundreds or thousands of exhibits. Our team has handled thousands of criminal cases, and can help organize, prepare, and execute the most complex criminal defense strategies. Let us assist with the challenges of searching, organizing, and getting easier access to Discovery. There is a better way than listening to wiretaps and jail calls with the outdated and clunky “HAWK players” and “Package Explorer” you have in Discovery. Contact us today for a fast and free assessment of your discovery and how we can help. We also assist with proposals to petition courts for CJA or appointed funds to cover the costs of managing complex or voluminous discovery.
Civil Litigation Support
Proper civil litigation support can make a significant difference to the outcome of your case. We can provide support and handle several types of civil cases, including tort claims, breach of contract, equitable claims, and more. In addition, we provide litigation support at all stages in the EDRM process, including discovery, pre-trial, and trial. Services primarily include deposition syncing and clipping, exhibit design services, exhibit management, and digital processing of exhibits, which includes Bates stamping. We work with firms of all sizes from boutique (small) to large firms both on the plaintiff and defense side and in some cases, our in-court services can be cost-shared between parties. Cornerstone’s litigation support and technology is second-to-none, regardless of firm size.
Stop wasting time Bates-stamping, exhibit stamping and managing you exhibit binders. Allow Cornerstone to utilize our proprietary software solutions to quickly, cheaply, and efficiently create your exhibit lists and mark your exhibits in a fraction of the time, saving you money and making your exhibits looks clean and professional. If you are still wasting time using exhibit stickers and scanning documents, contact us today to see how we can process thousands of exhibits in minutes. If an exhibit number should change, or more exhibits should need to be added in the middle, do not waste time renumbering documents manually. Our solutions can renumber exhibits automatically! Don’t hesitate to contact us now.
Exhibit Design Services
Our exhibit design services include the creation and development of demonstratives, charts, technical illustrations, timelines, and compelling slides for opening and closing arguments. Also included in this area are video services as well as the printing and production of oversized boards as needed.
Often, how well your facts are presented can make a difference when it comes time for jurors to deliberate. Cornerstone can strategize with attorneys to help them develop digital displays of evidence and presentations in ways modern juries have come to expect them.
Many jurors have a hard time following an hours-long opening statement without any visual guide. Sometimes a simple timeline board is all that is needed. Sometimes it’s a 100-page PowerPoint presentation. Sometimes it's an interactive chart you can manipulate on the fly as you deliver your point to a Jury. Contact us today to see how compelling exhibits and demonstratives can help you win more cases.
Our exhibit management services help attorneys identify and process relevant exhibits for potential witnesses in direct and cross examinations. Attorneys work with various departments at Cornerstone to identify these exhibits, including digital forensics, e-Discovery, and litigation support.
Exhibits are typically comprised of documents, as well as audio and video files converted from various formats and sources. After they have been provided to us, our litigation or trial support specialists can digitally manage them and process them with exhibit stickers. The final product is a digital exhibit list and database of potential trial exhibits (from Docfol.io) to be used at trial. Additional services include creation of witness kits, as well as printing and production of trial exhibit binders, oversized boards with documents or demonstratives, or other unique requirements to your case.
Bates Stamping Services
Bates numbering — also known as Bates stamping or Bates labeling — is the process of assigning a unique, sequential identification number to each page, file, or image in a voluminous production. Bates numbering helps lawyers and courts refer to each page of a production when reviewing motions and oral arguments in discovery, or pre-trial, phases. Our e-Discovery and litigation support specialists can help you and your team with this process.
We can quickly gather and stamp thousands of documents in minutes, creating a log of the documents. If you require additional endorsements on your production, we can add confidential stamps, specific metadata to the bottom of pages, and even tracking barcodes as needed. Don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss any unique situations, whether you have thousands of pages or just a handful, as we can assist with any size job quickly and efficiently to save time and money.
