“I want to express my deep appreciation to The Focal Point for your pro bono work on Perry v. Schwarzenegger. The members of your team developed compelling and effective trial graphics for a large number of expert witness on a very demanding schedule, and provided virtually round-the-clock creative and technical support during the trial. [We] were impressed by the talent and commitment of your team, and by everyones willingness to dedicate so much time and effort to the case. Thank you so much for everything that you have done, and for making our legal challenge to Proposition 8 that much stronger.

Commins & Knudsen, PC

Having The Focal Point help with trial preparation is like getting into a German luxury car. It is art and function in one. Many complex ideas are reduced to a few simple and understandable controls. This is the result of serious thought and focused creativity. I feel much safer with that kind of power at my disposal.

[I] have partnered with the people at The Focal Point on several complex matters. They consistently efficiently engage at a high level, provide insight, and simplify the matter so that the jury sees what the case is really about. They always allow us to put our best foot forward in the courtroom.

DLA Piper

As you know, we recently won our caseby a unanimous 120 jury verdict. I am convinced that your work played a significant role in our success. From opening statement, through trial and the closing argument, the various...graphics commanded the jurys attention and helped to convey the story I was trying to tell. After trial, each of the jurors expressed something of an appreciation for [the graphics]. They explained that in addition to providing some visual stimulation, they helped them to understand the case and place the facts in perspective. They were clearly impressed by the quality and creativity of your work which was then attributed to the merits of my case.

I have enjoyed working with the Focal Point for many years in developing our graphics for trials and significant hearings.  They have consistently provided terrific ideas and service, and worked with us as partners in helping to explain complex technologies to judges or juries. In our most recent experience working with the Focal Point, we were successful in winning a unanimous jury verdict in our clients favor on patent validity issues.  Although the concepts were complex and the turnaround time often short, the graphics provided by the Focal Point were truly exceptional.

Jeff Fisher

Thanks for all of your great help. The support you...provide is critical in a case involving technology or intricate documentation. We settled the case before the verdict was read, but from questioning them we know that the verdict was in our favor. The Judge and I both questioned the jurors about what they found persuasive and they commented that the visual presentation of the material made it understandable in a way that could not be achieved with documents in a notebook or just talking and arguing.

The Focal Point is consistently the most creative case preparation firm I have seen. You are not a graphics shop, but a case prep shop....I would be most pleased if you could prepare notebooks of ALL graphics for cases on which I have worked on with you. Your stuff is so great that I want to make sure I have copies of it to show/read to my kids at bedtime each night. As always, you guys are the best and I really enjoyed working this one with you. I am glad we have the verdictnow for the judgmentthanks again.

Thanks to your whole team for helping us get the points across to the Judge during the trial. Im quite convinced that a good part of the reason we got the result we did this last week was because the Judge sat through our presentations and followed exactly the points we were trying to make.”

Your team stands out among the crowd for both the quality of the ultimate work product and the partnership attitude with which you worked in helping to conceive, design, and deliver that product...my entire trial team continues to comment upon the responsiveness that we experienced at all levels of your organization....Despite the distance between our offices, we received extremely timely responses, both in on-site visits and work product delivery. I cant imagine that a local shop could have performed a more punctual and effective role...you have our complete admiration and respect.

Miller Starr Regalia

“The Focal Points art and high-tech work for trial and trial preparation of complex cases is second to none. We found that The Focal Point personnel not only worked well with our attorneys and paralegals in an interactive and productive manner in case preparation, but that they also offered many constructive ideas on how to better represent and project the various case points for consideration by the jury and judge. Their suggestions were most constructive and helpful. I endorse them to all attorneys having need of superior technical support for case preparation and presentation.”

I expected The Focal Point to deliver high quality graphics and they did. What I didnt expect was to have such talented partners to help me develop new channels to communicate my clients story convincingly and compellingly. More than just understanding my trial strategy, The Focal Point team embraced and elevated every aspect of our defense.

Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger

The critical exhibit in the case was a 4' x 6' timeline that Focal Point prepared....We used it with every witness. That exhibit became the focal point of the trial. It demanded attention. By the end of the case, even the defendants counsel and witnesses were using the exhibit (which was eventually admitted into evidence) as a reference point. The jury not only found the defendants liable to the class for compensatory damages, but also awarded the class $25.2 million in punitive damages. The Focal Point helped us tell our story to the jury.
