We hired Smith & Carson to conduct investigations and research for our cases because they are able to handle a large volume of cases much faster and more efficiently than if we tried to conduct the research in-house. The results of Smith & Carson’s research allow us to come to depositions and trial prepared with as much background information as possible. Their reports also give us some foresight as to how a witness might present at his or her deposition or to a jury. We also use Smith & Carson to conduct fact investigation during voir dire, as they are able to quickly run comprehensive searches on potential jurors. Smith & Carson has become an invaluable resource for our practice.”
