  • What is Courtroom Insight? How is it different?
    Courtroom Insight is the only directory featuring attorney and peer reviews of expert witnesses, litigation consultants, mediators, arbitrators and judges.

    Law firms and general counsel leverage Courtroom Insight's expanded Group Subscription features to confidentially capture and share members' experiences. Additionally, individual attorneys and clients rely upon Courtroom Insight's Content and Services to avoid expensive referral services and potentially unreliable word-of-mouth recommendations.
