How the Partnership Program saved Byrd Davis Alden & Henrichson time and resources

The Firm

The attorneys of Texas injury firm Byrd Davis Alden & Henrichson pride themselves on being exceptional trial advocates for their clients in personal injury, medical malpractice, and business litigation. Although the firm frequently relies on expert witness testimony to support its cases, their process for sourcing experts has always been haphazard, time-consuming, and produced inconsistent results.

The Challenge

Finding highly-qualified experts for their cases has always been a challenge for the attorneys of Byrd Davis Alden & Henrichson. “My first choice was always the treating physician in cases where a medical expert was needed,” says Robert Alden, an attorney with the firm. “If a treating physician wasn’t willing or able to testify, I would call friends, publish requests on listservs for plaintiffs’ lawyers, and do my own searching online.”

Occasionally, under desperate circumstances, the firm would call upon an expert witness referral service. However, they often found that the expense was high and the results were unsatisfactory. “Sometimes I got lucky and found a good witness. Sometimes they were not so good.”

The Solution

By partnering with Expert Institute, Byrd Davis Alden & Henrichson was able to retain well-credentialed and fully-vetted experts on all their cases without having to lift a finger. Expert Institute created custom outreach plans using our proprietary data to source witnesses that were exceptionally qualified for each of their cases. “As far as finding experts, to date they have uniformly been very high-quality, well-credentialed, no skeletons in the closet, and easy to work with.”

The firm was also able to leverage Expert Institute’s Case Clinics to consult on-call physicians for feedback on their medical cases. “The doctors get me quick responses to my questions and very focused case information.”

The Results

“Expert Institute has been a God-send for me. The help that they give in reviewing…case material to give me feedback, especially on medical issues, is outstanding. Most importantly, Expert Institute has freed me from a task that consumed too much of my time.”
