Courtroom Insight, Inc. (www.courtroominsight.com) was founded in 2009 by experienced litigation consultants Mark Torchiana and Everett Harry. During the course of their careers in forensic accounting, Mark and Everett were often surprised by the archaic system attorneys used to locate and evaluate expert witnesses. To address this market deficiency, Courtroom Insight created the only online directory that offers both profiles submitted by legal professionals and attorney reviews of those professionals. The site is the premier destination for attorneys seeking information about expert witnesses, litigation consultants, mediators, arbitrators and judges. Additionally, it offers an unparalleled marketing opportunity to service providers who want to share their specific skills and experience with potential clients.
