I don't know whether this will do what you want (or in fact whether this
works with contact lists), but if you want something to check out consider
using web part connections for this.
You would (if it works) create two web parts from the same contact list and
link them together via the contact name.
The first web part would show only a list of the contact person's name and
the second web part would then show only those records that were from that
particular contact person.
Again this is an idea only which may or may not be relevant in the contact
list scenario you have.
