Trial Presentation Services That Make Your Case™

Trial Graphics

Our trial graphics team brings decades of oil and gas and geoscience technical experience. Our highly talented artists and animated trial graphics experts are uniquely capable to fulfill your trial presentation needs. We understand geological, geophysical and engineering data and turn your complex evidence into litigation graphics that are accurate, informative, and easy to understand. Your litigation consulting experts and legal teams don’t have to hold our hand or spend hours explaining oil and gas terms and technologies…we get it. We also know it’s difficult for the juror to envision something they’ve never seen or know little to nothing about. Creating legal trial graphics and animations that explain what happens on the wellsite and in the subsurface is our specialty. Whether it’s a tool failure, formation damage or human error, we can communicate your side of the story to a judge or a jury with maximum effectiveness.

Explosions - Wrongful Death or Personal Injury Animations

Our trial graphics team has many years of providing legal graphics and courtroom animations for the oil and gas industry. Some case experience examples include: toxic effects of hydrogen sulfide, well blowout fires and other equipment explosions, blowout preventer failure, fracing accidents and workers struck by falling pipes and tongs, failing high-pressure connections, pipeline leaks caused by corrosion, and environmental surface and drinking water contamination from produced saltwater.

Graphics to Uphold Safety Standards

Worker health and safety is a priority of everyone in the oil and gas industry to prevent oil field accidents. The industry has a commitment to excellence, not only to protect U.S. workers, but to workstirelessly to keep surrounding communities and the environment healthy and safe. Let us create trial graphics that communicate you attention to these high safety standards.

Refinery Explosion and Refinery Animation

When an oil refinery explosion or chemical plant explosion occurs, it is important to communicate what happened and why. We are adept at creating technical 3d models and industrial animations to visualize complex facilities and operations for a variety of uses including trial graphics and courtroom animations.
Please take a look at this refinery explosion and refinery animation to see how we can also incorporate audio and sound effects to communicate important facts and bring technical animations to life for your next project or trial presentation needs.

We at Texas Tech have been utilizing John Perez Graphics for quite some time now. I remember about 10 years ago I started utilizing John’s videos I found on various oil companies’ public relations websites to introduce students to various aspects of drilling and completion. The videos are perfect for introducing students to basic oilfield practices and procedures. Recently, we…

The team at John Perez Graphics & Design did a superb job on taking our custom reservoir and seismic velocity model used for Carbon Sequestration Usage and Storage (CCUS) and turned our model into an attractive geological illustration that clearly communicates our message of the importance of high-resolution imaging and monitoring of the subsurface. We interfaced the John Perez Graphics…
Björn Paulsson, Ph.D. CEO & President Paulsson, Inc.
John and his team provide spectacular graphics that are useful for portraying concepts to the non-geologists and geologist alike. I have used his graphics to highlight the need for our research projects to our sponsors. Students have looked at the images and said 'oh, now I understand why I need to characterize the geology’.
Dr. Christopher K. Zahm Bureau of Economic Geology - Jackson School of Geosciences - The University of Texas at Austin
John and his team are outstanding. We presented them with a rush litigation animation project involving highly complex geological and engineering facts that had been developed over more than 10 years of litigation. Following a meeting with our team of experts and attorneys, they were able to transform mountains of data into a stunning depiction of gas and water movement…
Richard A. Olmstead Partner, Kutak Rock LLP
Dear Mr. Perez, I would like to take this opportunity to complement you on the many projects that you have delivered to my firm. These projects are of wonderful quality and have been delivered on time, a few times with shorter times than either one of us would prefer. Quite a number of the animations that you have created for…
John P. Hughett, P.E. President - Hughett Engineering Inc.
As the instructor of the Petroleum Technology department at WTC, I have used a wide variety of graphics and animations from John Perez Graphics.  Just recently, I needed illustrations of artificial lift methods for one of our second-year courses, and I was blown away with all the different options that were available.  John provided detailed schematics that directly represent the…
Dana Fahntrapp Petroleum Technology Instructor
John and his team provided us with an amazing product. The graphics are remarkable and effectively convey all the geological/production messages we had in mind at the beginning of the project. Communication was excellent and final edits/additions were promptly implemented. Due to severely depressed oil prices, the team completed 15+ hours of final edits at no cost to us. Thank you again…
Marco Martines Geological Lead - Exploitation of Occidental of Oman
- I have been using your firm's graphics and animations in the oil and gas law classes I teach at LSU, and they have been a big help. Many of my students have no oil and gas industry background, and some of them have never taken a geology course. In one of my classes, we recently were discussing a legal…
Keith B. Hall Director of Mineral Law Institute, Campanile Charities Professor of Energy Law
I started working for Venado Oil & Gas as the Director of Administration and one of my first tasks at hand was the development of the company website. My knowledge of website design and working in the oil and gas industry made this task very challenging. The decision to contract John Perez graphics to design the website was absolutely the…
Paul R. Janacek Venado Oil & Gas, LLC
I teach the oil-and-gas law courses at Texas Tech School of Law, and it is the rule rather than the exception that my students start my courses with little or no familiarity with the oil-and-gas business. In fact, more often than not, they know a lot that isn’t so! To be able to effectively teach the law on a subject…

Trial Graphics Animation Depicting Shale Drilling Lease Dispute

Drilling or downhole problems can be hard to explain, especially to the layperson of the jury. Stuck pipe caused by dog-legs in the well, tool or product failure, dropped slips or a pipe wrench in the hole can be costly and may permanently compromise access to known hydrocarbon bearing formations. Legal disputes over lease or drilling rights, leaks or environmental damage can often require animated graphics or subsurface visuals to understand the facts. Our knowledge and experience producing trial graphics for the oil and gas industry allows us to technically and creatively “think outside the box” and offer suggestions for a favorable verdict.

Trial presentation expertise means we see the red dots.

To us, every chart tells a story. Every bit of data reveals more of the bigger picture. And when we go to work creating legal illustrations, mapping or animations for your side of a case, we don’t let anything slip past us.

More than once, we have honed in on the “red dot” in a case—the overlooked, key piece of information—that helped our clients win the trial or settle in their favor. So don’t just get a graphic designer to work up some pictures for you. This is too important. Let us be your advocates before you ever set foot in the courtroom with trial graphics that make the difference.
