Dedicated to finding you highly specialised expert witnesses


A better way to find and brief expert witnesses

As a lawyer, I created ExpertsDirect out of the belief that lawyers should have options when it comes to securing the sort of expert witnesses that will give them the best chance of a successful outcome.


You also have to make sure that:


We all have packed schedules and heavy workloads, and often need to find experts at the last minute. Understandably, these time constraints lead to searching for experts via Google and passing emails around the office—far from optimal sources.

With ExpertsDirect, our goal is to procure highly qualified experts, save you time and energy, and make your life and job easier. Ultimately, you’ll get the peace of mind that comes with having a team who understands all of the legal and professional requirements surrounding the expert witness process. Since ExpertsDirect was founded in 2013, we have systemised our approach to providing experts to ensure that our clients build the strongest possible case:


We’ve spent years building our extensive panel of thousands of tried and tested experts whom we’ve briefed in a legal capacity, as well as the infrastructure that ensures an optimal outcome with zero hassles.



For lawyers by lawyers

From years spent in law firms, we understand how tough it is to find the right expert. We understand busy schedules, heavy workloads and the need to find experts at the last minute because we’ve been in those situations.
