The Expert Institute – Why Work For Us?

The legal industry has changed - and technology has provided the catalyst for this evolution. Lawyers are adopting new ways of thinking and redefining the most fundamental aspects of how they practice law.

The Expert Institute was founded in recognition of this paradigm shift, with the objective of developing a smarter way for attorneys to identify, verify, and retain the best expert witnesses.

Every litigator - from AmLaw 100 partners to solo practitioners - relied on outdated and inconsistent methods for finding expert witnesses. We were determined to disrupt this unreliable methodology.

We deconstructed the process of finding experts, and built a data driven platform that could adapt to the demands of any case. We combined that technology with a team of skilled legal researchers and developed a system that delivers a perfect match, every time.

Having partnered with over 4,000 firms, both globally and in all 50 states, we’ve gained unparalleled insights across all aspects of expert witness recruiting.

Our mission is simple - to help our clients be better advocates by providing them with access to the best expertise.


Working with the world’s foremost experts demands the best recruiting and research talent. We’ve cultivated smart, talented researchers by nurturing a culture of discovery, encouraging questions that get the right answers, and driving results. Clients at every level trust our 10 on-staff Medical Doctors and team of Multidisciplinary Researchers to engage them with the right expert. Our proprietary technology serves as tool researchers can use to facilitate an efficient search process. 


Our Sales and Account Management team provides comprehensive support on every engagement. They are active participants in every stage of the process, coordinating the efforts of multiple teams to make a perfect connection every time.


Our Tech and Marketing team is a collection of born innovators who see solutions as a way of life. Drawn from across the country and around the world, they work every day to improve our systems and deliver better solutions for our clients. They thrive on progress, and have created some of the most powerful technology in the legal industry.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at The Expert Institute.


    Had a phone screen then went to lengthy office visit. I interviewed with 4 people separately which took a lot of time and questions were not coordinated. I had the same questions asked several times and did not feel like I was clicking with everyone and could not envision myself in the space. Lastly, as I was trying to get out of the interview the first person tried to follow up AGAIN after it was going way over than expected.

    The weirdest part was the last person I talked with (before talking with recruiter again) made me feel uncomfortable. While he did not say or do anything specifically I got a creepy vibe and felt like I was being eyed for something I did not come to the interview for... decided to not move forward after all.
