Tom Singer, Axilon Law Group, PLLC
Three months before we were set to try an employment case in federal court in Montana, we sought help from Tsongas. We were asserting three claims, each requiring a separate damage calculation, and the facts were more complicated than usual in such cases. We asked Tsongas to help us distill the story and to develop demonstrative exhibits. One of the exhibits Tsongas crafted was a timeline that proved to be invaluable (a half hour into deliberations, the jury sent a note asking for the timeline – and a calculator). After seeing the Tsongas exhibits, we decided to hire Tsongas to help prepare our client to testify so that he could tell the truth well. In a couple of intense sessions, Tsongas taught our client strategies that made him more confident on the stand and improved his ability to tell his story under cross and direct conditions. With Tsongas’s help, our client received a verdict that awarded both compensatory and punitive damages and that looks to be a record recovery for a Montana employee.
