• “Years ago if you would have asked me if I thought focus groups were effective, I would have said ‘No.’ But after hiring Res Ipsa to conduct focus group work on several recent cases, it’s fair to say that I definitely see the value. Res Ipsa has consistently identified potential issues during their research work, which has helped our legal team develop a road map with various alternative strategies to use throughout discovery and up through trial. Res Ipsa has absolutely proven their worth.”

    Jon Bailey, The Bailey Law Firm

  • “I have always been able to count on Res Ipsa to get things done quickly and to get them done right. Their familiarity with the unique needs of the litigation process gives them a distinct edge over other media and trial support services.”

    Michael Erskine, Carlson Law Firm

  • “I have never seen anybody better than Res Ipsa at creating a new exhibit for me on the fly in the courtroom. Their expertise makes my job a lot easier.”

    Tom Watkins, Husch Blackwell

    Joe Ruiz, Ruiz & Associates

  • “I’ve used Res Ipsa exclusively for years and they have never failed me. Our results have been significantly better since we began using Res Ipsa. They add tremendous value.”

Commitment that shows.

Res ipsa loquitur. Literally translated as “the thing itself speaks,” the ancient Latin term, first used by Roman lawyer and philosopher Cicero in 52 BC, may be more commonly translated as “the evidence speaks for itself.” The doctrine rings true even today and lends its name to our firm and unwavering philosophy:

Res Ipsa’s work speaks for itself, with commitment to our clients’ success that produces winning results.

Our work speaks for itself.

And we can help you win.
