Introducing the new national standard in finding Expert Witnesses satisfying Court Practice Notes, Code of Practice, and rules for Expert Witnesses. Simon Smith, CEO and Computer Digital Forensics Investigator, himself an Expert Witness knows all too well how frustrating it can be and his clients often tell him how hard it was to seek out his specialisation. "I see EWD as a simple connection point between industry and experts. We have used a 'Keep it Simple' policy. It is for clients seeking an expert, and for the experts seeking to advertise their extraordinary skills to clients," Mr. Smith said in a press conference for the opening of the site today.
EWD is a new innovation developed for experts and contains complex internal algorithms that compare keywords and case law to words from CV's and the requirements of the client to get the best match for a client. Such technology is proprietary and has been developed by Mr. Smith who has been a Master in Software Engineering professionally for over 20 years. "The system has so much more under the bonnet," Mr. Smith said. After an expert expresses their intent to apply for an expert listing a whole process goes on behind the scenes that indexes and dissects the human capital into thousands of subcategories later to be matched into industry competencies. Mr. Smith, an expert in competency mapping and an inventor of educational patents in this very subject matter, stated that "this technology is new to the industry and is not only unmatched but has the ability to revolutionise the industry." Mr. Smith did say that all engagements will naturally pass strict human scrutiny at all times, but a helping hand is favourable.
"Every application is personally reviewed by a careers expert and each applicant is interviewed," Mr. Smith said. However, it seems that this is not the only benefit to EWD. The site directly connects experts in their specialist fields with their client to directly engage in contractual negotiations once matched. The matching service is free for lawyers, counsel, clients and all who seeks to genuinely engage Expert Witnesses. All the expert has to do is pay a yearly fee once approved - which is currently half price for the first year at $199 + GST. EWD does not interfere, try to take any commission or involve itself in the invoicing between the expert and the client. It simply hands the Expert Witness the customer for life. "How many sites offer that for $199 + GST?" asks Mr. Smith.
"It is a valuable resource for all, even journalists with our new special call-out facility. The website introduces a new innovation to the industry. It offers a completely free Dispute Resolution and Conciliation Service which benefits both the expert and the client in the event of some contractual disputes. A successful relationship starts with communication. Helping experts meet their legal requirements and promoting good customer relations is what we endorse. The difference between our service and others is introduction between the client and expert is made without interference or prejudice. There are no fees charged by EWD. The expert and client build their long term relationship, and the expert simply pays a low-cost yearly fee to be listed. It's all about building goodwill in this industry, in my personal experience, that breeds success. Unlike other websites, EWD is not interested in taking a share of experts' money - that only drives the price up for clients," Mr. Smith said.
The site is both user and mobile-friendly and features industry RSS feeds and will soon feature spotlighted experts and recent decisions of interest. For all medico-legal and forensic experts in any area that are asked to give an expert opinion, report, testimony or evidence to counsel, a lawyer, private client, or in a court of law, the benefit that the new unbiased EWD site brings is phenomenal, given that a yearly fee for an expert is reduced for a limited time to 50% of its original price down to $199 + GST.
Finally, Mr. Smith states, "There is of course a major over-arching benefit to this website which is beyond compare. It is not misrepresenting itself as a University, it is not a group of lawyers, it is a completely independent Expert Witness Database
built for the purpose of promoting excellence and independent connections of choice in the profession. The site also offers Expert Witness Training and other benefits to members. This is an innovation in the industry and promotes professional relationships between Expert Witnesses and their clients, without third-party interference."
. Experts can apply for an expert listing at 50% off for a limited time.
