Testimonials

“Tsongas has a well-earned reputation for providing excellent trial advice and valuable jury research, but we recently learned that Tsongas can help win summary judgment as well. We had the pleasure of working with Tsongas trial consultants on the defense side of a complex patent infringement case in which we obtained summary judgment on the eve of trial. What we realized after the victory was that all the work we had done with Tsongas to develop winning themes for the jury at trial helped us enormously in focusing on the winning issues for the judge at summary judgment.”

“Invaluable, insightful, and effective best describe the skills the jury consultants at Tsongas Litigation Consulting bring to jury selection. I have for years used the Tsongas team to assist on contract case, legal malpractice cases, construction defect cases, and other forms of complex commercial litigation, and they have assisted me with jury selection in every major trial and will continue to do so except where opponents hire them first.”

“I have used various combinations of the services that Tsongas offers. Each time, I have been able to substantially improve the presentation of my client’s case. Getting Tsongas’s perspective on the appropriate story line and on visuals has helped me see the holes more clearly, and find ways to fill them. Taking the time to practice and hone my presentation before real people, instead of the bathroom mirror, has proven worth its weight in gold.”

- Rosemary Daszkiewicz , Plum Creek, Seattle, WA

“I wanted to take a moment to offer my sincere thanks to Tsongas for the great work you are doing for us and our clients. In the field of admiralty and maritime law, bench trials are the norm and jury trials are relatively infrequent. Your approach to how jurors think and what is persuasive to them, particularly involving technical contract issues, has been invaluable. Your minds are agile and analytical, and your personal involvement in these cases is the primary reason we recommend that our clients use your jury consulting firm.”

- Matthew C. Crane , Bauer Moynihan & Johnson LLP, Seattle, WA

We have used the Tsongas team for several of our most important cases. The more we use them, the more impressed we become. They continue to impress us with their pragmatism and insights. They offer solutions, not just observations. They provide case-specific recommendations, not just boilerplate suggestions. They work with us and our clients to develop a cogent and meaningful approach to our most challenging issues. They have become part of our trial team, not just a bolt-on accessory. I have not found a more talented group of jury consultants.

“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 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.”

- Eric P. Schoonveld , Hall, Prangle & Schoonveld, Chicago, IL

“I have used Tsongas Litigation Consulting several times in complex litigation. I found the experience to be invaluable. On a case that went to trial, the firm’s assistance in developing a jury questionnaire allowed us to accurately identify problem jurors, as well as jurors that would be receptive to our case. Pre-trial strategy sessions permitted us to identify case strengths and weaknesses, and a mock jury helped reveal juror’s thought processes. The witness preparation was helpful in permitting first time witnesses to overcome their fears of testifying before a jury.”
