jeffJeff Dahm recently joined The Focal Point and brings with him 20 years of courtroom presentation experience. He has supported over 200 trials to verdict and over 300 hearings, arbitrations, mock trials, and other court matters. Jeff’s extensive experience as a “hot seat” operator and passion for trial presentation have earned him a place in many high-profile matters with the country’s top trial lawyers. His two decades of courtroom experience, observing all types of trials throughout the country, makes him a valuable asset to any trial team.

Jeff’s trial work focuses on complex high-stakes litigation. He is often retained on cases that involve voluminous amounts of evidence, and he has proven again and again his ability to organize and quickly present anything that is thrown his way. Some of his notable cases include a copyright infringement trial on behalf of Google in San Francisco, a criminal trial involving the CEO of KB Home in Los Angeles, and a patent infringement trial for Pure Storage in Wilmington, DE. He also works regularly at International Trade Commission hearings in Washington, DC, where his vast experience is utilized effectively in the fast-paced ITC hearing environment. In addition, Jeff has appeared multiple times as the courtroom technology expert for the State Bar of California’s “Champions of the Courtroom” and many other CLE programs. 

Jeff holds a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Analysis and Design from the University of California, Irvine. When not working you’ll find him in his succulent garden or whale watching. Jeff has a love of travel and all things Hawaiian. He lives in Oakland with his husband. Aloha!
