Claudette Wilson, Wilson Turner Kosmo LLP
I recently used Tsongas jury consulting to assist in witness preparation and jury selection for a trial in downtown Los Angeles. They immediately made themselves available and worked with our schedule, despite hurdles, including expanding their initial time commitment to add a couple of witnesses who needed more assistance than initially anticipated. The primary benefit of their work was the significant increase in the witnesses’ self-confidence and comfort with the examination process. Their knowledge of course did not change, but their ability to effectively convey that knowledge to the jury changed significantly, and they were no longer intimidated by the process. The help with jury selection, especially where the judge requested voir dire of all 36 prospective jurors at once, was also very valuable. They know the ins and outs of the jury selection process and the LA jury pool very well.
