WallGoldfinger has long since been courting law firms 


In our earlier days we built judges' benches, witness stands, jury boxes and benches for seating for a Vermont courthouse. Today our clients are further from home and much more corporate. That doesn't mean we've stopped building judges' benches, however.


WallGoldfinger is the creator of moot courts for some of the nation's largest and most prestigious law firms. 


Used as practice courtrooms for lawyers preparing for trial and their clients, moot courts are most often built in sections with levelers and casters for easy reconfiguration, assembly and storage.  


Take the moot court at the top right. Built for a Washington, D.C., law firm and designed by Lehman Smith McLeish, the court is built in detachable sections, includes levelers and is set on casters. It features a swinging entry gate and stairs leading to a raised judge's bench that seats three beside a witness stand set on a lower level. It was accompanied by a jury rail and platform.


The bench includes power and data access as well as an AV storage cabinet. The court is created from rift cut oak veneer and solid white oak with custom stain and lacquer as well as both brushed and polished stainless steel. Carpeted flooring was installed onsite.


The middle image, designed by Gensler for a second Washington, D.C., law firm, shows a moot court in curly maple veneer in a book matched pattern with a custom stain and solid maple. The judges' bench is again on casters, is built in sections for storage and seats three. The witness stand comes with adjustable levelers.


The bottom bench, designed by Gensler for a New York law firm, seats five, was built in two sections and is set on casters. Made from ribbon stripe mahogany veneer, makore pommelle veneer, solid mahogany and brushed brass, it was accompanied by a complete court of bookshelves, reconfigurable tables, a witness stand, a lectern on casters and a cart on casters for a plasma monitor.


These are but three designs. Custom built, there is no limit to size, functionality and materials.
