- CaseMap Bundle (CaseMap/TimeMap/DocManager)
We hope to continue the national contracts which encourage these deals to be offered to the CJA panel, but considering the ongoing budget limitations all deals are subject to change.
Note: Like many litigation software programs, these programs are developed for Windows based operating systems and do not work with Macintosh operating systems.
Below is a brief description of the software and the current pricing information for these programs:
CaseMap and TimeMap are two of the most popular litigation support software programs for FDOs and CJA panel attorneys. CaseMap is a fact management application used to organize, manage, and connect case facts, legal issues, key players, and documents. Because it is a single database, it allows team members to work collaboratively and store important case information in specialized relational spreadsheets for ready access and analysis. Through flexible filtering, CaseMap enables end-users to see how any person, fact, document, or issue relates to other elements in a case. TimeMap is a graphing software used to create visual timelines of case events, assisting judges and jurors in their understanding of the sequence of key events in a case. TimeMap integrates with CaseMap, allowing any record in CaseMap that has a date associated with it to be sent to TimeMap instantly. DocManager is a CaseMap plug-in that allows users to view highlighted search hits in DocManager’s near-native viewer, and bulk import and view many file formats while still providing Adobe Acrobat integration and functionality that users are accustomed to.
LexisNexis offers CJA panel attorneys the CaseMap / TimeMap / DocManger bundle for a special reduced price of $739.00. Contact PMsales@lexisnexis.com for assistance and questions. Make sure to mention that you are a CJA attorney and that you are interested in CaseMap products at the special discounted rate.
dtSearch is a popular search and retrieval program, and it is the search engine utilized in well known computer programs such as Forensic Tool Kit (FTK, a computer forensic tool), CaseMap and Adobe Acrobat Pro. This type of program is a useful tool to assist legal teams in searching discovery, creating brief banks, and viewing different file types (including non-PDF files) even if you don’t have the associated application. We have a limited number of licenses available for CJA panel attorneys to use for free (a $200 value).

TrialDirector 6.8 is one of the most popular electronic courtroom presentation software programs, and FDO and CJA panel attorneys have been using it in trial and evidentiary hearings for many years. TrialDirector 6.8 allows attorneys to do multimedia presentations in court, including presenting imaged documents, document highlighting, document callout and zooming, cropping, annotating, multiple zoom capabilities, side by side exhibit comparison, playing audio and video, and the playing of synchronized audio/video transcripts. It allows for the importation and organization of case files including exhibits, documents, images, videotaped depositions, deposition transcripts, synchronized deposition transcripts and can be synchronized with document review databases.
