EP In The News: Winning Shots

Rick Kraemer’s photographs have won him friends and helped build Executive Presentations into a highly respected trial services company. Reprinted with permission from Association of Southern California Defense Counsel’s Verdict Magazine, Volume 3, 2013. By Carol A. Sherman    Flashing a friendly smile and wearing his signature bow tie, Rick Kraemer beams as he flips through the pages of one of the scores of photo albums that line a hallway in his top-floor mid-Wilshire office near downtown Los Angeles. The candid photos contained in these albums capture more than three decades of who’s who of the Association of Southern California Defense Counsel (ASCDC). Looking through the photos, no one seems to shy away from Rick’s lens. He easily recalls every lawyer’s name, the names of their children and the story behind the picture. “Through my pictures, I’ve become a part of many lawyers’ lives. I’ve been to their parties, weddings and funerals. When someone needs a photo, be it a judge, lawyer or industry vendor, they call on me.” Rick admits that his photographs have opened doors for his trial services company. As founder and president of Executive Presentations, a full-service trial presentation company, much of Rick’s business comes from […]

Last In A Series: An Ounce Of Prevention — Graphics

Previously: Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 With the Consumer Attorney’s Association of Los Angeles’ (CAALA) annual Las Vegas Convention arriving August 29, we’re serializing a feature article on trial presentation that appeared in the May 2013 issue of CAALA’s Advocate Magazine. Earlier this week, Rick looked at the power of video as a presentation tool and how it is much more than just lights, camera, and action. In the final installment of the series, he wraps things up by giving you the big picture on graphics: Graphics are meant to supplement your arguments, not replace them.
