Legal Video Pricing
I am retained by more than 100 law firms that want the quality and professionalism of a litigation communication expert, not a deposition videographer. My productions have helped yield nearly $1B in settlements across North America. I do not charge for reasonable domestic travel and there is never a charge to re-edit for trial. I do not outsource. I log more than 100,000 miles each year working on location with attorneys and their clients.
Every production is truly customized which prevents a one-size-fits-all price sheet, but here’s a general look at my pricing guidelines:
Day In The Life Videos
“Day In The Life Videos” tend to run in the $5500 to $7500 range. The main factors impacting pricing are length of production, number of locations for shooting and turn around time. Remember: I do not charge for reasonable domestic travel. There is never a charge to re-edit for trial.
Life After Loss® Videos are my most popular production and combine the elements of a “day in the life video” with “settlement documentaries” in a shorter form. Simply put, Life After Loss videos show life after the accident, injury or death. Life After Loss videos combine typical “day in the life” video imagery with impactful, emotional interviews. My experience, approach and network news background leads to genuine, often tearful explanations of what life is truly like for your clients and their family. While pricing varies due to length, number of interviews, quantity and quality of family photographs as well as your litigation schedule, you can expect to pay between $6,000 and $12,000 for a Life After Loss video. Remember, reasonable domestic travel is included and there is never a charge to re-edit for trial.

Video Settlement Documentary
“Video Settlement Documentary,” “Demand Package,” “Settlement Brochure” — there are many names for the same type of production. These are documentaries that look and sound much like a network news magazine report and are highly effective in high-stakes, high-value litigation. My litigation documentaries include interviews, graphics production, professional scripting and narrative development, professional narration, stunning editing and videography. Ranging in price from $7,500 to more than $30,000, pricing varies based on length of production, number of locations for videotaping, number of interviews, complexity of graphics production and turnaround time. As always, all productions are completely customized and I will always effort to meet your case budget. There are never “up charges” or other surprises. There is never a charge to re-edit for trial.
Regardless of production selected, I will work with you and your team to develop a timeline that makes sense for your case. With your permission, I speak with your client(s) and “hand hold” them through the process — alleviating fears and concerns before the day of production.
I use small 4K equipment which produces stunning results without intimidating your clients. I do not travel with an entourage — I personally shoot, edit and produce all elements of your documentary. When appropriate, I send a small “home video camera” to your client in advance, so more personal events can be captured on video by a family member, not a stranger.
After The Shoot
In the case of a “Day In The Life Video,” I consult with you to determine what should be included or excluded from the final production.
In the case of a litigation documentary, I work with you to develop an effective narrative and enjoy a “back and forth” relationship — ensuring that the final product is exactly what you want. The project is not complete until you say that it is complete.
Call Anytime. Let’s Discuss Your Case.
I look forward to working with you and showing you just how effective professional litigation video is in injury, medical malpractice, police misconduct, wrongful death, construction accident, aviation, maritime and trucking cases. Telephone 877-484-4611, or use the contact form below.
