Spent an entire week putting together hundreds of hearing exhibits...then client decided they wanted to change the order of them....the day they were due-as a strategy move. 🤦🏼‍♀️ They’re done now and I survived but I’m wondering if anyone has tips/suggestions on how to make a process like that more efficient for next time. Is there software you use? How do keep everything organized without losing your mind?

I use relativity. If exhibit order was changed I would extract in required order. Load and label in trial director. Extract from trial director for service.

Yes!!!

Adobe Pro DC works best. I tend not to append an exhibit cover sheet until the last minute for this exact reason. Using the combine as PDF feature works best.

Where is the best place to hire a litigation paralegal? What criteria are most important when hiring a litigation paralegal?

I would think a headhunter should be your first source. They are the ones who are shifting through our LinkedIn profiles and can find paralegals based on your your needs.

As for criteria, that really depends on what side of the case you generally represent and do you have technology? Hiring a paralegal with very high technology skills would not be good for a firm that doesn’t have the cases that would support the financial output to purchase all the bells and whistles. (In this instance I am thinking of ediscovery and document databases).

Juniors (not a reproach but well meant advice): Learn the « language » of the matters and practice areas you are working on, eg if a client matter has a nickname learn the real name and the nickname; if the client refers to something as something else learn that as well. It will help you communicate with both the client and senior lawyers.
