Brian Carney, Esq.

Biography:

Mr. Carney graduated from Suffolk University Law School in 1989 after completing college at Stonehill College in 1986. Throughout law school, Mr. Carney participated in Suffolk University's Law Review from 1987-1989. He also completed a series of graphic design and multimedia courses during his early professional career. His personal studies included an avid interest in storytelling techniques, which he utilized in establishing his own videography and video editing business in the 1990's.

After attaining membership to the Massachusetts Bar in 1989, Mr. Carney clerked in the Massachusetts Superior Court from 1989-1990. He then worked as a prosecutor for eleven years at the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office in Boston, Massachusetts. Throughout his prosecutorial career, he excelled working for the Appellate Division, the Grand Jury, the Gang Unit, and as the Chief of the Safe Neighborhood Initiative Grove Hall. As he continued in his legal career, Mr. Carney also stayed true to his creative roots when he started the first ever Multimedia Department for the Suffolk County District Attorney's office in 1998. As the Chief of the Multimedia Unit, Mr. Carney helped prosecutors communicate by creating interactive visual presentations for use at trial. These graphics allowed prosecutors to focus on storytelling as an important feature in the communication of their cases. While Mr. Carney enjoyed his work at the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office immensely, he knew the importance of visual communication in his own career and he wanted to share that knowledge with the rest of the legal community.

As a result, Mr. Carney founded WIN Interactive, Inc. in 2001 for the purpose of helping lawyers visually express their most effective cases in mediations, arbitrations, and trials. In WIN Interactive's early years, Mr. Carney researched the most persuasive techniques for converying information while simultaneously striving to revolutionize those techniques by combining them with state-of-the-art technology specifically tailored for litigation.

Along with his work at WIN Interactive, Mr. Carney frequently lectures for MCLE training courses (most recently at a medical malpractice seminar regarding the visual communication of medical evidence), the National District Attorney’s Association summer conference, the National College of Trial Attorneys Evidence courses, and at various law schools. He also trained prosecutors in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Dakota and Texas.
