The Small Print
Our Expert Witness Policy:
We do not check expert witness qualifications as we believe that simply vetting paper qualifications does not work - and certainly does not automatically make for a good expert witness. However, we recognize that many site users look for some reassurance in this regard. Virtually all professionals have an accreditation or affiliation with a professional body, and if an expert witness has declared such membership, this is indicated on their profile together with a hyperlink direct to that organization's website. We also impress upon our expert witnesses the importance of providing details of lawyer testimonials which appear in their profile. Those lawyers may be contacted by the user directly, usually by telephone or email. In our experience there is nothing better than a personal recommendation from a fellow professional - this also ensures a degree of quality control.
X-Pro is not liable for any loss arising out of any act or omission by any expert witness. Furthermore, as a simple source of reference we cannot guarantee competence or probity on the part of such expert witnesses and X-Pro cannot be held liable for any loss resulting therefrom. It is for that very reason that we urge users to contact referees and make the appropriate checks with professional bodies.
