Casemaker Tips for 5.10.2017
Casemaker partners with Expert Search Group
Casemaker has partnered with Expert Search Group (also known as ESG) to help you find Expert Witnesses with ease. ESG is an expert search firm with a revolutionary billing model designed to save you and your client money. They typically charge a one-time flat fee for each expert hired. There is no hourly surcharge or hidden administrative fees added to the expert’s rate. ESG does not require a retainer like other companies and once placed, you and the expert move forward with none of the invasiveness of the three-way billing process used by expert referral firms. How? They provide you with a selection of fully vetted experts who are qualified, available, interested, and conflict-free. Once you decide on one, you engage the expert directly.
Narrow by Circuit
While the Jurisdiction menu will aid you to narrow your search to Circuit court cases, it will not allow you to narrow to a specific circuit. However, that option is still available! Once you perform your search, click to view all the case results. You can also click on the Cases link on the left. Either option will pull up your results list and a menu on the left side. This left side menu gives you the option to narrow your results by a variety of different ways. For example, you could use the Jurisdiction option to narrow to check the box for Circuit. Note you may have to click a link at the bottom of the category to get all your options. Next, you can the United States Court of Appeals you wish by checking off the appropriate box. Now your results should be narrowed to the Circuit court you prefer.
Searching by Party
Searching by party works best if the party or parties in question have a less than common name. Obviously, searching for the party name of Smith is going to yield a number of results compared to other less common names.
To search by party simply type the name of the party in the search bar and select the circle (often called a radio button) under the search bar labeled party. This will pull up all cases where that name is mentioned as a party in the case.
