Our Staff

Dirk van Rees

After graduating from Utah State University I worked in the corporate world for a number of years before striking out on my own.


I started Courtroom Visuals out of my home in 1991. My first client was a well-known premises liability plaintiffs’ attorney. I built a model of a sewer pipe for trial and my client dropped a Barbie doll down the man hole repeatedly for the jury. The visual of watching the scale doll fall down the sewer over and over again obviously had an impact on the jury because they awarded a sizeable verdict at the end of the case. There were two defense attorneys representing the property owner and construction company, both of whom later hired me to build scale models for them. To this day, all three of those original clients still use us for trial support work and all of their visual needs! 

Dan Codman

Dan Codman studied for a year at Hartford Art School before graduating with a degree in psychology from Wofford College in Spartanburg, SC. Upon graduation, Dan immediately went to work with Dirk at Courtroom Visuals. For over 25 years now, he has been assisting lawyers to make their presentations more visually persuasive and compelling. In that time, he has personally worked on over 600 case ranging from personal injury to premises liability to medical malpractice. He now manages all the graphic production at Courtroom Visuals as well as the multi-media department. Dan also has extensive experience as a Trial Technician sitting in the "hot seat" supporting attorney's at trial with their technical and visual needs.

Chip Davis

Charles Davis (Chip) graduated with a degree in Economics from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.  Shortly thereafter, he moved to Atlanta and began working in the transportation industry.  It was here that he developed his skills as an application and database programmer.

His career with Courtroom Visuals Inc. began in 2002 by developing the second generation of our web site, and has grown to where he is involved in the majority of our projects.  "I'm a natural problem solver and I've always liked to tinker. These skills are put to great use here at Courtroom Visuals."  His background in database programming has enabled him to effectively manage our multi-media work.

Chip is our go to man, so to speak, when it comes to operating our in-court presentations.  Whether we are downtown at the Federal Court House or anywhere in the South East, he will do whatever it takes to help our clients.
