“I have worked with Tsongas trial consultants for many years and their work on a recent commercial case exemplifies why. Their insights contributed in every aspect of the trial. They were not just helpful, they were integral.”- Stephen F. English , Perkins Coie, Portland, OR
“I recommend using Tsongas jury consultants in your most significant and serious cases in Nevada. I have used them on complex commercial cases, fraud cases, significant plaintiff actions, and construction defect matters. Tsongas offers valuable aid in developing jury trial strategies and the “story” that you will need to tell a jury so that they clearly understand your client’s case and are more willing to fight for it.
Tsongas has a unique and effective method of developing high risk juror profiles, supplemental juror questionnaires, and evaluating high risk jurors by “scoring” the nature of their attitudes and experiences. Their extensive experience with Las Vegas jury attitudes allows them to contribute in the most meaningful ways to case and theme development as well as with voir dire and effective jury selection strategies.
The Tsongas team also provided powerful and engaging demonstrative exhibits and PowerPoint presentations for opening and closing. These have helped me control the key issues in my cases and present juries with a clear and persuasive visual story.
I would not hesitate to call them if you want to give your client a unique advantage.”- Mark A. Hutchison , Hutchison & Steffen, Las Vegas, NV
“I want to thank you and your staff for the outstanding assistance in helping me prepare original demonstrative exhibits and graphics, as well as critiquing my opening statement, in connection with a week-long arbitration hearing in an employment case before a retired judge who conducted the proceedings much like a bench trial. As you know, this multi-million dollar class action had several attorneys on both sides. My client’s in-house counsel and managers who attended the hearing felt that our graphics and opening statement were clearly superior to the other side’s homemade version. My co-counsel and I couldn’t agree more.
Not only was your team able to help me prepare an excellent counter-chart, but we built a series of effective graphics that made the opening statement and the presentation of evidence much more coherent, concise, and persuasive.
I look forward to working with Tsongas on future matters and will strongly recommend their trial consulting services to colleagues.”- Michael J. Killeen , Davis Wright Tremaine, Seattle, WA
“I have found the Tsongas jury consulting firm invaluable in teaching and assisting in jury selection and theme development, and developing the story points for trial. Two points about working with the firm on a dozen or so cases come to mind. First, there’s nothing so uncommon as common sense. We lawyers tend to forget what makes non-lawyers tick. Second, the Tsongas people with whom I’ve worked–all of them–helped teach me to find the box, and then how to think outside of it, in preparing complex civil litigation for trial.”- Milt Rowland , Foster Pepper, Spokane, WA
“You have made the uncertainties of a civil jury trial manageable, workable and tolerable through your keen insight, common sense experience and judgment and consultation. Unpredictability has achieved a normative probability – something my clients bank on.”- Michael A. Patterson , Patterson, Buchanon, Fobes, Leith & Kalzer, Inc., Seattle, WA
“I have worked with Tsongas Litigation Consulting since 1989. They have played crucial roles in my cases by conducting mock trials, preparing witnesses, designing demonstratives, performing jury research, preparing jury questionnaires, conducting post-trial juror interviews, and assisting with voir dire. I simply would not consider my trial preparation adequate or my team complete without the professionals at Tsongas by my side.”- James Moriarty , Moriarty Leyendecker, Boulder, CO
“I have worked with Tsongas Litigation Consulting on a number of cases over the last decade. Tsongas trial consultants have helped me with graphics, case themes, jury selection and mock trials. I have found their work to be uniformly first rate. They have very good ideas and provide top notch service”- Kelly Corr , Corr Cronin Michelson Baumbardner & Preece, Seattle, WA
“I have worked with a myriad of trial consultants over the years and you are at the top of my list. I cannot thank you enough for your incredible and thoughtful advice and calm insights regarding jury selection, case strategy, graphics and the preparation of the most difficult witnesses in hard-fought, high-stakes intellectual property litigation. It has been a joy and pleasure to work with you.”- Ken Keller , Kreig Keller Sloan Reilly & Roman LLP, San Francisco, CA
“I consider using Tsongas’ services in every case I handle, not just in large exposure cases. Their case strategy process provides me with different types and levels of service customized for the case so I know I’ve always done my “jury due diligence.” I have done many mock trials with many different Tsongas trial consultants. I have always come away with critical insights that were essential prior to trial or ADR. However, I believe that Tsongas is very attuned to the fact that not every case needs a full blown mock trial. They offer cost effective alternatives and my clients appreciate that.”- David A. Ernst , Davis Wright Tremaine, Portland, OR
“Tsongas provided valuable assistance through a strategy session for a multi-million federal court plaintiff case involving the sale of a business. The complicated, multi-facet claims included breaches of representations and warranties, self-dealing, accounting errors, and a myriad of other issues. In the strategy session Tsongas helped the client and lawyers determine the best story and eliminate extraneous details, while spotlighting the strengths and minimizing weaknesses. This effort was capped with a fine written report, and graphic charts and demonstrative aids that could be used at trial to illustrate the case in pictures as well as words. I look forward to working with Tsongas trial consultants again.”- Roger J. Kindley , Ryan Swanson & Cleveland, Seattle, WA
