Legal Video Pricing
No travel fees, no credit card fees, no surprise charges. Absolutely no outsourcing. I work with you, on location.
I am retained by more than 200 law firms that want the quality and professionalism of a litigation communication expert, not a deposition videographer. I am an award-winning former on-air network news correspondent. My legal video productions have helped induce nearly $1B in settlements across North America and assisted the United States Department of Justice with a major corporate prosecution. Whether showing how a child with Cerebral Palsy is struggling through life, how a bilateral amputee is adjusting to life without limbs, or how a family is mourning the loss of a loved one who would still be alive if not for a defendant’s negligence, my legal video pricing is straightforward. I do not charge for reasonable domestic travel, there are no credit card fees, there is never a charge to re-edit for trial and I do not outsource.
I log more than 100,000 miles each year working on location with attorneys and their clients.

Day In The Life Video Pricing, Also Life After Loss®, Settlement Video
Day In The Life Videos tend to run in the $7800 to $8800 range. There is no fee for domestic travel and there is never a fee to re-edit for trial admissibility.
Life After Loss® Videos, which are my trademarked productions best described as a short “day in the life video” with short “settlement video” elements (brief liability segment, emotional interviews), price between $9,000 and $14,000. These are my most popular and successful productions. The vast majority price under $10,000.
Settlement Documentaries, also known as “Video Settlement Brochure” productions and “Legal Video Demand Packages” start at $8,500 and can surpass $30,000. These tend to be used in high-stakes, high-value litigation.
Witness Preparation and Sentencing Mitigation videos: Please telephone or send a message.
For all productions: there is no travel fee, no surprise up-sell, and work commences with a small retainer. The balance is payable upon completion. Credit cards and e-checks are accepted with no fee.
The Process — Legal Video Production
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.

There is no outsourcing. Andrew Colton handles every aspect of your case. It is imperative that fees are reasonable and acceptable should expert pricing be subpoenaed during legal proceedings.
