DRI And Expert Witness Profiler Form Strategic Alliance

The Voice of the Defense Bar announced its alliance with Expert Witness Profiler, one of the leading authorities in expert witness research. This alliance will provide DRI members with a strategic advantage in evaluating, retaining and opposing experts.

This alliance will allow DRI members to order a comprehensive and customized profile on an individual expert witness. These profiles will couple data from the members-only DRI Expert Witness Database with the fee-based report provided by the Expert Witness Profiler. The primary feature of this benefit is the fact that each profile report is prepared on a custom, real-time basis by specially trained and highly experienced research attorneys and relies upon multiple data and document sources. This approach guards against the possibility, even likelihood, that critical information may be missed or overlooked.

The Expert Witness Profile includes information about an expert's testimonial history, challenges, disciplinary history, licensing and certifications (verified), education (verified), professional background, association memberships, publications, teaching and research experiences, patents, trademarks and copyrights (when relevant) and references in news, blogs, social networking and other areas.DRI's Expert Witness Database is among the leading repositories of expert witness information on the market. More than 65,000 plaintiff and defense experts reside in an ever-growing database.

"DRI membership has just become even more valuable through this exclusive members-only benefit.Our members and their clients will benefit greatly from this new alliance.The Expert Witness Profiler and the DRI Expert Witness Database provide an unparalleled tool for creating a tangible resource to drive client success," said John R. Kouris, executive director, DRI - The Voice of the Defense Bar.
