Thank you for all the work you performed on my case. It was a pleasure to work with you. Rest assured that if I ever need an attorney again you will be the ONE CALL because I know YOU MEAN BUSINESS, even if you don’t advertise on television! I would recommend you to anybody whom I know! Thank you again!!
I would like to express my sincere appreciation and complete satisfaction with Paul Scoptur and Tim Aiken for the way they handled my case involving medical malpractice. A personal friend and attorney introduced me to Paul after I suffered a near-death experience as a result of a failed medical treatment/procedure at a local hospital.
Paul and Tim did an outstanding job in achieving a fair and equitable settlement while avoiding, what could have been, a long and costly litigation process. I appreciate their dedication and professionalism. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a personal injury law firm.
I want to express my sincere appreciation for taking my case. I was amazed at the extent of preparation you did to "leave no stone unturned" in building a solid case for me. I am sure that was responsible for the defense’s wish to finally settle, and the successful outcome today was due to your preparation, expertise and tenacity. I am extremely happy with the result and am so appreciative of all you did for me. You are the best! Thank you, thank you, thank you !!!
Thank you so much for taking my case. You were very well prepared in every way and your efforts resulted in a settlement that was very nice. I’m sure your knowledge and expertise in obtaining expert witnesses was a great help in settling this case out of court. You were professional, knowledgeable and very pleasant to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend you to my family and friends if they are ever in the need of counsel.
Thank you so much for all of your help.
We have been doing focus groups with Paul for the last 4 years. We are confident he is the best trial consultant in the country for many compelling reasons. Unlike many other consultants, Paul is an experienced and highly successful trial attorney. He knows what it is like to stand in front of conservative juries on behalf of severely injured plaintiffs. He knows what it feels like to win and to lose. His 30 years of trial experience, combined with the lessons he has learned from doing hundreds of focus group all over the county, make him uniquely qualified to show trial lawyers what they need to do to win cases in front of tough juries.
After working with Paul on a difficult medical malpractice case, we changed our litigation strategy based on the lessons we learned at his focus group. Shortly thereafter, The defendants offer rose from 2 million to 5 million.
Last week, he moderated 2 "pre discovery" focus groups on a medical malpractice case we just filed. He learned our case quickly and was able to identify potential problems that we and our medical experts had even considered. He has an amazing ability to think like a juror instead of a lawyer. Then, at the focus groups, he was able to help us figure out what the jurors really thought about our case and, most importantly, we learned what we needed to show the jurors to prove every element of our case. As a result, we changed our discovery plan. He also used intelligent and crafty questions to allow the jurors to give us compelling themes we can use during opening statements and closing arguments.
Paul sincerely enjoys helping trial lawyers represent injured persons to the best of their abilities. He understands how tort reform propaganda effects jurors and he knows how to help us overcome conservative biases that are so deeply rooted in contemporary juries. Paul is a joy to work with because he does not have an ego. All he cares about is helping trial lawyers figure out the best ways to maximize their chances of winning cases for people who really need our help. We look forward to working exclusively with Mr. Scoptur for the rest of our careers.

Paul Scoptur is among the elite of the trial consultants and focus group facilitators with whom I have been able to consult on the preparation and handling of my cases. I have been involved with AAJ / NCA courses for fifteen years and have been impressed with Paul for his ability to see the landmines and holes in my cases where I previously thought none existed. Because of Paul and his consulting with me on three of my cases, I have been able to successfully conclude them. As I told Paul, I only bring him the difficult ones. I would be very happy to recommend Paul to anyone who needs a focus group facilitator or a trial consultant. He is among the best.

I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for me and the kids! I am SO thankful that you were sought out, and that you decided to take on our case. You truly where such an integral part of this unbelievable outcome! There were many times when I you were speaking that I thought, you are so smart, articulate and I was thankful that you where apart of all of this. You totally reminded my Mom and I of good ole’ Peter Falk in Columbo.
I have to say I already feel a huge sense of relief for my future I also feel like everything has been on hold until this trial took place, so I feel like I’ll be able to move forward in a new way. So many thoughts and ideas keep popping into my head, it’s crazy and exciting (yet I never forget for a second how I got here.
From the bottom of my heart…..thank you again!
" Our very sincere and heartfelt thanks for your diligent and deft handling of the case and for your understanding and empathy. Hope our paths cross again in happier circumstances. "
