Use of Force
❝Lucid CGI worked on a series of three rapid-fire cases, and their counsel and work in that environment were professional and very helpful to our prevailing in all three matters. I heartily recommend their services.❞
❝Lucid CGI gave us a multi-media visual strategy, for opening statements and witness testimony that was extremely helpful in getting the jury to see it our way. We were able to clearly communicate our story and persuasively discredit the prosecution’s evidence. At the end of a 3 1/2 week criminal trial, our client was acquitted of all charges. I’ll definitely use Lucid CGI again.❞
❝Lucid CGI provides clear and effective animations and demonstratives, in complex technical matters, without the added overhead that comes from a large animation or graphics firm. Their level of service and attentiveness is excellent.❞
❝Diane Suzuki is some kind of genius.❞
❝I’ve worked with Lucid CGI on several matters, particularly patent litigations, over the last ten years. Their work has been consistently excellent. They easily grasp the most complicated technical matters and prepares graphics that clearly and concisely present the material to any audience.... Lucid CGI is the only company that I would use for graphics support in patent cases or any other matter.❞
Veteran graphics consultant Diane Suzuki had a vision of a litigation graphics firm that provides a truly robust set of services beyond PowerPoint, video, and animation.
Diane comes out of nationwide litigation consulting firms. When storytelling emerged as the strategic paradigm, she left the firm to enroll in USC’s film school to strengthen her skills.
Film School brought filmic storytelling techniques and a sharper visual vocabulary to her expertise. Moreover, working with filmmakers using extraordinary film tech sparked a vision of a litigation graphics company. Inspired by the technologies used in film-making and the creative minds in the film industry, Diane left film school with a clear vision of a lit support company that provides out of the box innovative solutions. Diane launched Lucid CGI upon graduating.
