On March 9, Chicago attorney and focus-group impresario Ken Levinson presented to the CATA membership at our periodic luncheon CLE on using focus groups to maximize case value.

As an attorney who regularly uses focus groups, I found Ken’s presentation to be enlightening. Ken obviously knows how to manage a group–including ours!–in a way that opens them up to providing candid feedback.  He gave away valuable tips from his own experience, as well as examples of how they have gone form focus-group gold to trial wins.

Recognized by Super Lawyers as one of the top 100 lawyers in Illinois, Ken is a graduate of Gerry Spence’s Trial Lawyers College, and a member of the Trial Lawyers College Alumni Board and The American Trial Lawyers Association. He is the author of the latest edition of Litigating Major Automobile Injury and Death Cases, published by AAJ Press/Thomson Reuters, and has been invited to speak by the American Association for Justice and multiple state bar and trial lawyer associations. In addition to representing clients, Ken is often retained to create focus groups and assist lawyers in the presentation of their case.

Thanks to CATA Secretary Cathy Bolek for putting the presentation together for our members.

Please take a moment to give Ken some feedback, or even ask questions.  I’ll let him know we’re using this post for that purpose so he can respond.
