The Internationally recognized leader in video sentencing advocacy.

Every client has a story to tell,
a humanity to reveal.

He will help illuminate the truth of your client’s story in a way traditional methods of persuasion advocacy simply cannot. This method is not only accepted, but welcomed in courts across the country.

Why Visual Advocacy


Seeing is believing.  If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth a million.  A powerful story told with powerful visuals enhances the credibility and impact of sentencing arguments.


Video gives the attorney greater control over the unpredictability of live witnesses and brings sterile written witness statements to life.


Research consistently shows that video is a highly effective tool for communication and persuasion.


Videos give the judge or jury an up-close and personal view of the human side of your client, their family and their life.


As the leading expert in sentencing video advocacy, Passon has the legal experience and production capabilities to handle any kind of case.


The potent combination of legal advocacy and documentary film making has the power to change lives.
