Erik Bermudez, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships, recently noted that Filevine is at the forefront of providing a better way by utilizing technology, curiosity, and strategic partnerships. That is why Filevine is excited to announce an exclusive strategic alliance with Trial School.

Trial School is a non-profit collaborative effort focused on providing free trial advocacy training for lawyers who represent people and groups fighting for social justice. The School has become a laboratory of collaboration between today’s top national trial lawyers for developing best practices based on a study of all of the respective methods and schools of thought about how to most effectively try a case. The School also seeks to foster collaboration between the trial lawyer faculty and students for teaching Mixed Method Advocacy in a way that’s digestible and easy to use in practice.


“Trial School teaches best practices and methods to trial lawyers, while Filevine provides best-in-class technology to intuitively work cases and run the entire firm. Together in this exclusive partnership, Trial School and Filevine create a powerful trifecta of method, process, and technology in the legal industry. This partnership revolutionizes how attorneys acquire knowledge and operate their business,” said Ryan Anderson, Founder, and CEO of Filevine.


Initially, in the Trial School’s mission of providing the best trial advocacy methods and practices to trial lawyers who represent people, a component for best-in-class technology was missing.


“Over the last ten years, various case management systems for plaintiff lawyers have come and gone. Today, Filevine stands at the top and is the very best option for a plaintiffs law firm looking for a system to organize client files, emails, communications between team members, intake and so much more. If you’re looking for an option to replace your old and broken-down system, you owe it to yourself to check out Filevine. You won’t be disappointed,” said Rich Newsome, CEO of Trial School.


Together, Filevine and Trial School are challenging the status quo by creating better training and resources which empower trial lawyers to take their practice to the next level of competitive advantage and success.

"The Trial School Founders, in the very beginning, told themselves, ‘There has to be a better way.’ We love this about Trial School, and we at Filevine share these same values. We ask ourselves the same question, ‘Is there a better way?’ And we strongly feel that through technology, curiosity, and exclusive partnership like this one, the answer is always yes. We are proud of and excited about the strategic alliance between Filevine and Trial School and what the future holds for both organizations," said Erik Bermudez, Vice President of  Strategic Partnerships at Filevine.
