Testimonials

“I recently had a major trial court hearing on a matter involving complex real estate law. I knew beforehand that it would be challenging to explain my position to a judge who isn’t highly versed in the details of this nuanced body of law. Graphics would be particularly important in this instance since I knew that my best road to success was making sure I had an argument that was easy to understand and penetrated with compelling information. I called Tsongas for help, and together we devised a strategy and the supporting vivid and dynamic graphics that explained my client’s position clearly and persuasively. The result was a fortunate 100% victory for me and my client. I strongly recommend Tsongas. They provide invaluable insights along with the graphic tools to make complex information clear and compelling to a trier of fact. Tsongas is intuitive, 100% client focused, and professional.”

“We have used Tsongas jury consultants for a number of our employment defense cases and trials in Southern California.  Defense verdicts in every trial.  They are top-shelf trial consultants and a valuable part of our team.  They provide great insights and recommendations on trial themes and narrative development for opening statements and closing arguments as well as well-designed and executed mock trials.  They have assisted us in witness preparation, helping our witnesses become comfortable telling the truth well in both direct and cross examination.  Tsongas trial consulting has also helped us with jury selection, which they approach in a systematic and scientific manner.  They listen to our needs, help us pick the best services within our particular budgetary constraints, and then deliver the goods.  All in all, when you go to battle, they are an important resource to have on your side.  I do not hesitate to recommend their trial consulting services to my partners, colleagues, and clients.”

“I have worked with Tsongas trial consultants a number of times over the years.  Most recently we had a very complex and detailed securities arbitration and approached them for assistance  with the closing argument presentation.  They quickly got up to speed on the issues, designed and developed a number of very persuasive trial graphics for use in the closing, and they put together a highly detailed and interactive “hyper-linked” PowerPoint presentation, integrating our key documents into our persuasive themes.   This managed to keep the complexity manageable and meaningful.  They were timely and responsive, and working closely with us under tight time frames to get us the product we needed.  The client was extremely pleased with the content and the presentation, and the arbitrators specifically commented on several of the graphic designs packaging our key evidence.  I look forward to working with them again.”

I was very pleased with the variety of services I received from Tsongas for my employment defense case.  From in depth trial strategy for opening and closing to engaging graphics that helped tell my client’s story in a persuasive and compelling manner, Tsongas delivered, even when the lead time was short and deadlines were approaching rapidly.  I will use Tsongas again in the future.

“I have worked with Tsongas jury consultants for years, as a practicing trial lawyer and now as a General Counsel.  Tsongas has assisted me in the development of case strategy and its execution.  In particular, they have helped in the preparation of our key witnesses to tell the truth well in depositions.  We recently worked with Tsongas on a complicated breach of contract case, working with some of our highest level employees.  Tsongas, working directly with me and our outside counsel, helped us have our witnesses feel truly comfortable with the process, control the deposition situation and tell the truth in an efficient manner.  I do not hesitate recommending their trial consulting services to my peers who want their witnesses to be prepared for the trial strategy and tactics of opposing counsel, so the witness can control the process, and tell what actually happened in the clearest, most efficient and most persuasive way.”

- Alexander A. Baehr , Colliers International, Seattle, WA

“I have worked with Tsongas trial consultants for years.  Most recently they assisted us in a legal malpractice case that had some particular complexities and challenges.  Their process and method of analyzing cases and developing a coherent and persuasive case strategy is highly practical and illuminating.  They helped us make the case efficient and more manageable for a jury.  In addition, they designed and developed demonstrative exhibits for opening and closing, helping us package and present our information in efficient and appealing ways.  They were responsive, took direction when needed, made strong recommendations when they felt they needed to be made, and we worked as a team to the great benefit of our client.”

- Christopher W. Tompkins , Betts, Patterson & Mines, P.S., Seattle, WA

“We recently used Tsongas jury consultants to assist us in our highly successful Intellectual Property trial.  They assisted us with a mock trial, jury selection and conducted a shadow jury throughout trial.  The mock and shadow jury research proved to be very accurate and helpful, and they provided useful insights on the nature of the jurors in the venue and how they would respond to the unique elements of a patent infringement case.  They were an enjoyable team to work with, responsive and professional, and I appreciated their experienced, grounded, and practical recommendations.  I would highly recommend their trial services and look forward to working with them again.”

- Derek Gilliland , Nix Patterson & Roach, LLP, Austin, TX

“The members of the Tsongas team provide an insightful sounding board for trial themes, strategy, and translating complex or mundane facts into easy-to-understand concepts.  Early in a case’s preparation, I found that their case strategy exercise provides a fantastic way to organize case themes and deficiencies – on both sides of the case.   I also found that Tsongas consultants have real-world experience in IP cases that assists litigators beyond the traditional feedback that a general trial consultant might provide. In a recent trial, Tsongas helped our team prepare for voir dire and streamline our case presentation, and received useful feedback throughout the trial.  It is difficult to argue with the results in both cases, which were resolved overwhelmingly in our clients’ favor.”

- Bobby Ghajar , Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP, Los Angeles, CA

“Tsongas jury consultants played an invaluable role in helping us develop our opening statement and closing argument in a recent trial.  Their focus on not only themes and language, but on how the structure and flow of closing argument can influence the process of deliberations were helpful in getting jurors focused on the strengths of our case.  Through Tsongas, we’ve learned that it’s not enough to just persuade jurors in opening and closing; it’s important to give them a process and the tools to take control of deliberations in a way that best serves your client’s needs.  More importantly, Tsongas provided practical, real-world advice rather than just generic recommendations or abstract theory.  I would recommend Tsongas to any attorneys preparing for trial.”
