Magna Legal Services Acquires Kim Tindall & Associates

Magna Legal Services Adds Kim Tindall & Associates to the Greatest One-Stop-Shop for Legal Support Services

Magna Legal Services (Magna LS) and Kim Tindall & Associates (KTA), two ALM award winning court reporting and medical record retrieval industry leaders, announced today the combination of their firms. KTA was founded in 2009 by Kim Tindall. The two companies will combine operations on April 1, 2021.

With more than 500 employees, 3,500 court reporters, 5,000 interpreters and 40 litigation consultants in 20 locations across the U.S., Magna LS and KTA together will be one of the largest litigation support and consulting firms based on both size and services offered.

Both companies are known for providing exceptional service to clients. The combined company is designed for customers — a company with increased capabilities and geographic reach coupled with a commitment to delivering outstanding service. “The combination will create 80 years of industry experience and match strength with strength in both our court reporting and medical record retrieval divisions. Additionally, our KTA clients will now gain access to a wide variety of litigation support and consulting services. I am very excited for our clients, staff and court reporters,” said Kim Tindall, President of KTA.

Tony Vaglica, COO of Magna LS, will be working closely with the KTA team. He added, “The addition of five KTA offices (San Antonio, Austin, Dallas, Houston and New Orleans) along with their team of freelance court reporters will streamline operations throughout Texas and Louisiana.” Magna LS has existing offices in Houston and New Orleans.

Founding Partner and Executive Vice President of Sales at Magna LS, Peter Hecht, added,

“The big winners in this merger are the clients from both Magna LS and KTA. We will be able to increase service levels to our Magna base in Texas while offering new powerful litigation support tools for the existing KTA clientele.”

Both Magna LS and KTA built their businesses to support clients from Discovery to Trial.

Magna Legal Services’ CEO, Mark Williams, is excited about the addition of KTA as well. “We are delighted to welcome the KTA team to the Magna family,” Williams said. “Kim and her team have extensive industry experience and have created one of the fastest growing companies in both the court reporting and record retrieval sector. Their success shows through their highly-positive customer reviews and ratings, as well as their rapid growth over the past few years.”

Hello, fellow COVID-19 haters! Like you, I can’t wait to slam the door on 2020. The year was a disaster for so many of us, both professionally and personally.

Court House

Magna Mock Trial Contributes to Client Win on All Counts

Court House

In preparation for an upcoming patent infringement matter in the United States District Court, Central District of California, the Honorable Judge Josephine L. Station presiding, Magna Legal Services (“Magna”) conducted both a mock trial and hourly consulting services as the case moved towards trial. Legal counsel from the firm Russ August & Kabat represented Pavo Solutions, LLC, a South Korean company that manufactures USB flash drives. Ben Wang, lead counsel with Russ August & Kabat, represented Pavo.

Over the course of the trial, Magna acted in the capacity of a strategic litigation consulting firm, through one of its senior jury consultants, Dr. John Gilleland. Strategic litigation consulting involves a systematic approach to optimizing the jury selection process and helps to refine the trial presentation themes and strategy of one’s case. The jury consultant frequently draws on the information gathered in the pre-trial research effort for additional follow-up consultation, which in this case, included both witness communication training and voir dire/jury selection assistance.

Trial Background and Specifics

Pavo manufactures a USB flash drive with a patented swivel cover.  The suit alleged that Kingston Technology manufactured and sold a product with identical, patented elements.

The Mock Trial Process

Magna conducted a mock trial on behalf of Russ August & Kabat utilizing three (3) separate panels of deliberating jurors. These panels followed a full trial format in which they heard opening statements, key evidence including witness testimony and then closing arguments from each of the respective parties.

The detailed feedback from each of the three deliberation panels helped to guide Mr. Wang’s trial team in the refinement of their case structure and trial presentation strategies. The Magna research team made recommendations ranging from: high-level structural issues for the various trial arguments, down to suggestions for simplification of key witness testimony. If left uncorrected, even the smallest of these issues could have a material impact on the actual trial.

After the mock trial, Mr. Wang said, “This mock trial was particularly helpful; feedback and issues were spotted all the way down to the team’s organization. The feedback at the mock trial turned out to be (identify) a key issue at trial and we were prepared for it, so we managed to keep it out. Having it come up in the mock and forcing us to prepare our response to it, got the judge to say “no-go”.  If we had to do it on the fly, we might not have had the same result.”

Through the mock trial process, Mr. Wang was able to anticipate challenges ahead of time, giving him and his client a distinct advantage in the actual trial setting.

Focus on Voir Dire

Dr. Gilleland’s recommendations regarding voir dire topics were of particular importance when it came to the actual trial. Through the mock trial process, Dr. Gilleland was able to formulate and refine specific questions, which were likely to help identify each jurors’ probable verdict orientation. Mr. Wang was able to take these questions and apply them to the actual trial, resulting in a positive impact on the eventual decision. “It was helpful to have Dr. Gilleland here to provide a first draft of questions for the jurors,” said Mr. Wang following the completion of the trial.

Magna specializes in end-to-end litigation consulting. Through Magna’s consulting process, we help clients set the stage for any of their litigation needs, including: scheduling depositions, language services, medical record retrieval, social media surveillance, graphics/demonstratives, trial technology and jury/bench/arbitration research and consulting. To learn more about our jury consulting process, request a free copy of The Ultimate Guide to Jury Consulting, from our website or contact our offices to schedule a free case consultation of your own.

Introducing Magna’s Newest Jury Research Platform: JuryConfirm 20/20

The “new normal” of COVID-19 has changed our daily life, but Magna Legal Services remains in full operation, ready to handle any of your jury research and support needs. This is a time to work on pending cases because once the court systems adapt, cases could move at a rapid pace. Online mock trial services and case valuation studies can provide reliable, up-to-date feedback regardless of your location. 

Magna is now introducing JuryConfirm 20/20 – the most powerful, efficient, cost-effective virtual jury research platform anywhere. It means jury research based on the most modern user interface, with cutting edge features: 

  • Redesigned immersive courtroom with unlimited research methodologies
  • Live attorney presentations
  • Unlimited research methodologies 
  • Limitless visual presentations with unrestricted video
  • More live jurors (up to 80)
  • Enhanced juror feedback with artificial intelligence-powered analytic tools
  • Live juror deliberations with more panels than ever available before (up to 6 panels of 12)
  • “Instant” reporting
  • Evidence analyzer – With smart logic and AI to automatically catalogue the highs and lows of presentations, always “taking notes” and “watching” jurors so you don’t have to

Magna is the nation’s expert in online jury research. Over the past decade we have conducted more online studies than anyone in the world – by far. We have run over 2,000 online jury research exercises, working with over 25,000 mock jurors.

JuryConfirm 20/20 not only allows us to run half-day exercises as before, but long-format 6.5 hour “plus” sessions as well. Our enhanced JuryConfirm 20/20+ platform is far more robust in capability and duration than ever before. It allows you to conduct extended focus groups in which everyone – presenters, observers, and jurors – participate remotely from their location. Lawyers present their cases for up to 60 minutes and jurors deliberate at length in our virtual courtroom, using the methodology as with in-person research. JuryConfirm 20/20+ solves the challenge of social distancing.

With an extended session of 6.5 hours, longer presentations and more deliberations than our traditional platform, this format bridges the gap between in-person research and online jury research. As with JuryConfirm, you will make presentations via webcam in real time, testing key themes and demonstratives. Our new 20/20+ platform offers: 

  • A longer research day, at 6.5 hours per session
  • Longer attorney presentations, at 60 minutes per side, plaintiff and defense
  • Longer deliberations – Jurors have more time to deliberate than in our standard JuryConfirm platform to mimic the amount of deliberation time in in-person studies
  • Juror rating system with real-time feedback that can be broken along demographic lines
  • Streamlined efficiency – By hosting research virtually, we save time by minimizing break lengths and juror down time. Managing the jurors more efficiently helps preserve the advantages of a full day’s research within the 6.5 hour time frame

Magna also offers a wide range of online legal services in addition to JuryConfirm 20/20 and 20/20+. Our online damages assessment tool, JuryEvaluator, provides you with an evaluation of potential damages by surrogate jurors. We also offer social media surveillance for plaintiffs / claimants (ClaimScout) and social media surveillance searches on prospective mock jurors (JuryScout).

7th Annual Chopped for CHOP

On November 6-7, 2019, three-time mock trial winners Susan Metcalfe and Ted Schaer went head-to-head in a battle of the champions at Chopped for CHOP. This seventh annual convention was held in Atlantic City, NJ. After a panel workshop and reception to kick off the event, these two top attorneys presented their cases to win up to $20,000 to be donated to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).

Who broke the tie and emerged as the grand champion this year? Read on to find out, and to learn more about this incredible two-day event.

Day One

On the first day, Magna’s own Dr. Rachel York Colangelo moderated panels of attorneys and industry executives who took part in a workshop exploring effective deposition tactics. Teams of attorneys and industry executives took part in role plays and demonstrated effective skills in deposing difficult witnesses. A panel discussion was also led by Caryn Siebert, Vice President in the carrier practice team at Gallagher Bassett, along with fellow industry experts, that focused on strategies that can be used early in a case to improve outcomes. The panel discussed examples and case studies with the attendees, taking a closer look at preparing witnesses, researching the jury, and more. 

Following the panel, attendees enjoyed a dinner reception at Indoor Pool at The Water Club before getting a good night’s rest in anticipation of the next day’s mock trial.

Day Two

The mock trial is the highlight of Chopped for CHOP, and in past years there have been numerous attorneys competing for the win. This year, Susan Metcalfe and Ted Schaer, each of whom have won this competition three times, competed alone against each other in a tie-breaking battle of the champions.

They presented their best case to a panel of judges made of claims executives and corporate counsel. Richard Fabian of the RiverStone Group generously donated his time to develop the topics and script and moderate the event. There was a lot at stake for our competing attorneys: bragging rights and $20,000 to be donated in their firm’s name to CHOP.

Competition

In the Chopped for CHOP mock trial, both attorneys received the facts of the case and presented their opening statements. They then had the opportunity to cross-examine a plaintiff and a defendant before presenting their closing arguments. After each round, the judges and the mock jurors, who were recruited and selected from the actual Atlantic City trial venue each cast a secret vote for the attorney they believed to have won the round. The judges also offered helpful feedback. 

Of course, a jury trial is unpredictable and never easy, and we made sure to throw our competing attorneys a few twists and turns. Via instant feedback technology, our audience members voted on which distractions and difficulties they wanted the attorneys to face during the mock trial. For example, a new fact emerged during the trial that had not been available in the case information prior to the event, and a pizza delivery person wandered into the courtroom to deliver a large pie to the judge. 

As expected, the attorneys handled it all with professionalism and grace, and when the competition ended, we were proud to announce the winner: Susan Metcalfe! She’s now a four-time Chopped for CHOP mock trial champion.

Chopped for CHOP is one of the many unique, interactive events we produce for attorneys, corporate counsel, and claims professionals. Among a variety of other services, from court reporting to language interpretation and document translation, we offer programs that aim to entertain and educate. We create memorable experiences and connect professionals with the opportunity to share best practices and learn from each other.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about our conferences or to schedule a deposition.

Extending Legal Services from End-to-End

Magna Legal Services goes where no legal company has gone before. Instead of just focusing on juries or some other specific part of the litigation process, Magna handles everything from discovery to trial.

The Start of Something Great

Peter Hecht, Bob Ackerman, Jon Ackerman and Mark Calzaretta identified a hole in the legal services market. No litigation support companies offered true end-to-end legal services. Those that tried, did so by focusing in one area and contracting out others — sacrificing control and quality along the way. Magna integrates everything from start to finish.

The Magna Difference

To this day, no other company matches Magna’s range of services. Magna is the only company with organic roots providing services in both discovery, pre-trial and trial. The company’s JuryConfirm and patent-pending JuryEvaluator software have completely disrupted how attorneys pick juries and tailor their cases to them. The reason Magna’s software has been so successful is because Magna developed it backwards from other companies. Instead of building a product and trying to find clients, Magna found what clients needed and built software to fit those needs.

However, Magna is much more than technology. Magna’s jury consultants have decades of bench strength, have seen what works and what doesn’t, and are educated in psychological profiles. 

Our Philosophy

When their clients talk, Magna listens — and that’s their strong recipe for success. Magna is always looking for new ways to innovate, whether it’s improving tools like JuryConfirm and JuryEvaluator, or developing new products. Magna also continues to evolve their basic services, allowing them to always provide the most advanced, cutting-edge trial graphics.

One of the biggest sources of inspiration for Magna is the five-question survey every deposition client gets when they receive their transcript. The survey is designed to identify signs of unhappiness or dissatisfaction even when clients aren’t open about it. When a potential problem is identified, Magna proactively reaches out and works with the client to get things back on track.

Every action Magna employees take is driven by customer satisfaction. The company is sales-based, but the sales depend on relationships and repeat business. Relationship managers have strong incentives to keep their customers happy.

The Future of Legal

Trials will never lose the feel of Columbo and Matlock. It always has been and always will be about the story. The only difference will be in how the story is told. You can already see how new technology is used on modern shows like Law & Order, Bull and CSI. While these shows often stretch technology beyond current reality, that technology may very well be both reality and routine in the near future. Virtual reality and artificial intelligence are also ready to break out both to enhance trial presentations and to help cases settle sooner and clear docket backlogs.

Attorneys must adapt to this new technology, not just because judges and jurors will expect to see it, but because of the changing demands of the business. Better predictive technology directly aligns with the constant pressure to settle cases sooner and for less. Lawyers will also need the efficiency that comes with technology to free up time to continue providing the highest level of attention to their cases.

Mark Your Calendar

Magna hosts three major events each year in Atlantic City, Las Vegas, and Miami. They’re a combination of education, networking, and entertainment — what they like to call, “Edutainment” seminars.  Attorneys and claims professionals can receive CLE or CE credits while having a great time. What’s truly unique is the opportunity to meet new people by way of their Magna rep. It’s not always easy to meet people at events, so having someone there looking out for you makes a world of difference. We also have opportunities to become a sponsor, moderator, or panelist. If you aren’t able to attend, you can always call them or speak to one of their representatives to bring a mini Magna CLE/CE to your local office.
