Lawyer Testimonials

As you recall, I came to you a few weeks ago, desperate for an expert to respond to a late-served defence opinion. The assignment was a 'mission impossible' with a ridiculously short deadline and you guys came through like the heroes you are. An enthusiastic "Thank You" for the contribution you made.
Aleks Mladenovic - Thomson Rogers
Chris and her colleagues have helped our office many times in locating leading experts in specialized and sub-specialized areas of medicine, in sourcing medical information and in helping us interpret and understand this information - invaluable in evaluating cases and preparing for trial. Each challenge we present is met with enthusiasm, dedication and access to a vast network of health care knowledge.
Joe Miller - Weir Bowen
I have been counsel in medical malpractice cases for in excess of 25 years and have no hesitation in recommending Chris Rokosh as a first rate expert witness. In a number of cases where Chris has been retained she has demonstrated the necessary expertise and objectivity that the best experts must possess.
Jerome Morse - Morse Shannon
Connect Experts has banished that age old barrier to justice, the inability to find an independent medical expert willing to give opinion. This service is worthy for use by lawyers and their clients who want to know if they have a case, and who want to win it if they do.
Ches Crosbie - Crosbie Barristers
I retained Connect Experts to assist me with a Cost of Future Care report for a severely brain injured young man. A Life Care Planner reviewed the medical legal reports from the various medical experts I had retained, attended my client’s residence, met with his parents, and generated a very detailed comprehensive Cost of Future Care report. I was highly satisfied. I would recommend this service to other personal injury lawyers with severely brain injured clients.
