While attending the Widener University School of Law, Ken taught himself computer animation as a hobby. It was that hobby, combined with his law degree and a degree in economics from the University of Mary Washington that helped launch his career of entrepreneurship.
In 1995, he founded his first company, A2L Consulting (www.a2lc.com), where he serves as its CEO. A2L provides trial support services to nearly all of the nation’s top law firms and their clients around the world. Often called upon when the dollars at stake are high, A2L’s services include helping to predict how judges and juries will react to a case, the creation of sophisticated visual evidence used to persuade judges and juries, and the deployment and use of state-of-the-art technology in the courtroom.
Best selling business author Dan Pink highlighted A2L in his book, A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future, and Ken has been quoted by many news outlets including the Wall Street Journal, Inc., NBC News, Wired, the Washington Post, and the BBC.
Recently, the readers of LegalTimes voted A2L "best jury consultants" and readers of the National Law Journal voted A2L "Best Demonstrative Evidence provider" in the country. The American Bar Association named A2L’s blog, where Ken publishes weekly, one of the top 100 blogs in the legal industry and one of the top 10 litigation blogs.
In 2008, Ken developed amethod for determining the schedule of litigation in federal court cases. That invention became the basis of his second firm, called LawProspector. LawProspector sells information about upcoming cases and the attorneys involved in them to litigation support sales teams worldwide.
In 2013, Virginia’s Governor appointed Ken to a four-year term on the University of Mary Washington’s Board of Visitors. He also serves on the Dean’s National Advisory Board of Widener University School of Law.
Still, Ken lists his top passion and proudest accomplishment as father of triplet girls.

"We made the right decision when we hired you. You are absolutely the best."
"I am very happy with the quality of A2L's work and happy with the graphics. One of the best jury consultants I have worked with."
"If you are in need of highly qualified, creative, diligent and personable providers of trial graphics, I recommend A2L. They were wonderfully helpful and supportive of our team and demonstrated, repeatedly, real skill in creating graphic and demonstrative exhibits that captured the essence of our presentation. Just as important, they did this under extreme time and quality pressure and, always, with a smile."
"Your team did a very nice job on the simulation in the engine case and I will certainly keep and your team in mind for future litigation support needs."
"You guys were great, I’ll definitely use you again."
