Learn more about working with Guidepoint Legal Solutions.

How do I know I can trust the experts provided by Guidepoint?

Each expert provided by Guidepoint has been screened through a thorough vetting process including previous litigation experience, criminal background checks, Daubert/Frye, and others. We screen our experts to ensure credentials are accurate in order to provide our clients with knowledgeable experts they know they can trust.

Our attorneys usually find their own experts. What are the benefits to using Guidepoint to find experts instead?

Guidepoint Legal Solutions allows our clients to work more efficiently by providing resources necessary to screen cases and in turn position themselves for success. By utilizing Guidepoint’s extensive network of over 600,000 experts, our clients are guaranteed to be connected with key opinion leaders in any field. Guidepoint’s subscription rates are transparent and more cost effective than hourly services so you know what you are paying up front.

How are Guidepoint’s experts different from those I can find online?

Guidepoint experts are not “hired guns.” Guidepoint connects clients with professional experts who are highly credential and dedicated to their fields of expertise. In the case of an Expert Witness Search, Guidepoint is committed to providing clients with an expert who can help them gain a better understanding of their specialized field. Additionally, Guidepoint’s experts are extensively vetted to verify their credentials and suitability.

We have our own network of individuals we like to reuse. Is there a benefit to using new individuals as experts on different cases?

Our clients have found it very helpful to supplement a list of experts they have already used with new experts to avoid over-usage. Doing so enables a new group of experts to serve on cases, replenishing lists of available experts.

Does Guidepoint Legal Solutions only have medical experts? Do you have non-medical experts?

The Guidepoint Legal Solutions team can service requests for experts in nearly any field or industry. To do so, the Legal Solutions team draws on Guidepoint’s extensive network and searches for experts in the requested field. The Legal Solutions team is also able to custom recruit outside of our network for an expert that best suits our client’s needs. We can custom recruit specific experts outside of our network if they are requested by the client.
