Hello campers! Sorry to have left you all in the juryboxblog lurch for a few days. I had dental surgery last Wednesday and I can only handle one kind of pain at a time!
I have spent a lot of bandwidth over the last couple of weeks telling you what other people have been up to. Let me spend a little time telling you about a new venture of which I comprise but a small part (Of course, we know what Shakespeare thought of small parts.)
Joe Laliberte, a resident of the fine state of Maine, runs a forensic investigations firm called Corporate Intelligence. He realized that many clients who had the need for one kind of forensic service often had the need for other kinds, as well. Wouldn't it be great, he thought, if an attorney could go to the same place for reliable experts in every imaginable field of forensics? Being more of a doer than a dreamer, Joe put his considerable energy to use assembling a team of first-rate forensics experts, all working in the New England area.
Joe invited me along because many attorneys asked him who was going to be his jury expert. I guess if you're going to go to the trouble of hiring an airplane accident reconstructionist and an e-discovery firm, you're probably going to court. So, it can't hurt to have a trial consultant on board, too.
Joe's little venture has been in operation for about two months now and our network of experts has been raking in the jobs. Joe can't keep up with the demand for his dog-and-pony show (It must be some pony!) Anyway, we seem to be onto something here.
So, if you need any kind of forensic expertise, service or advice, and you work in New England (even if you don't), give Joe a ring, email, tweet, or holler. You can find a list of the 40-odd experts who make up the network, as well as Joe's contact information at www.ineedforensics.com . Joe's a really nice guy and he has one of the best mustaches you'll ever see! Tell 'em Edward sent you!
