“I would use Tsongas Litigation Consulting again in a heartbeat. I have tried a lot of jury cases over the years and have used jury consultants in many of them. But Tsongas’ consulting and advice were something unique. For a number of reasons, the complex commercial case was very challenging. The stakes were high; the other side had a hometown advantage; it was a high profile case, with tough case facts; and there was a potential bias against the client in the local jury pool. Tsongas was able to navigate us through all of it, with a patience and calmness that made everyone…including the client… comfortable. Tsongas’ personnel know how to develop case strategies, focused on themes and tactics that can reframe case issues in an understandable way for jurors. They know how to do mock trials, identifying the things that need to be changed for trial strategy and helping us implement them into the opening statement, the strategy for witness examinations, and the closing argument. They know how to select juries and how to prepare witnesses to tell the truth in a memorable and consistent manner, even under tough cross examination. The folks at Tsongas were an important part of the trial team, offering advice regarding trial strategy on a daily basis; and they contributed to an outstanding verdict for us and for our client.”
