We have worked with Tsongas Jury Consultants for years. Recently we had the chance to work with Tsongas Trial Consultants in a plaintiff product liability case. It was a tough case, and we had only a modest budget for jury consulting, but we wanted to make sure we were on the right track and get their advice on how to execute the trial theme strategy, jury selection, and trial graphics. Tsongas got up to speed quickly and we worked collaboratively with them to develop, simplify, and refine trial themes. Their astute understanding of jury behavior allowed us to target the case themes to our jury; they assisted us in developing a comprehensive and practical jury selection strategy, and they worked with us to develop and produce a number of demonstrative exhibits to express our case themes and organize and frame our evidence visually for the jury. The jury verdict was a great success for our clients and we appreciate Tsongas’ professionalism, experience, and responsiveness to our particular needs. We look forward to using them again.

I have relied on the sound wisdom and practical advice of the Tsongas team for years. Their commitment to delivering excellent service is one of their strongest traits. I recently worked with members of the team on the development of case themes, jury selection, opening statements, and closing arguments in three cases and the results have been excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend the Tsongas team to those looking for reliable, dedicated, and valuable strategic litigation partner.

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.

My colleagues and I have worked with Tsongas on theme development, jury selection, witness preparation, openings and closings in multiple product liability (prescription drug) cases. Their insight has been invaluable in helping us shape an effective story and selecting the best juries possible. They provide concrete suggestions and feedback in an efficient manner. For all these reasons, they quickly became an integral part of our team. We are better advocates because of their guidance. I recommend them to anyone needing this type of jury consulting, and I look forward to working with them for many years to come.
