What is the total number of expert witnesses, judges and attorneys that are contained in LexisNexis Litigation Profile Suite? Do the tools contain everyone?
Although LexisNexis Litigation Profile Suite does not contain every expert witness, judge and attorney, the tool does have background info on over 365,000 experts, 48,000 judges and more than two million attorneys, and the number is steadily rising!
Expert profiles are drawn from our master expert witness list, which continues to grow as new expert witnesses surface in documents such as jury verdicts and summaries, CVs, depositions, affidavits, reports, etc. We don’t purposefully exclude any expert witnesses, but rather include and update as we learn new information.
Judge profiles are available for all current and former federal judges. We also have profiles for current judges on all state courts of last resort, intermediate appellate courts and most general jurisdiction courts. In addition, we are in the process of adding many municipal court judges.
Former judges of general jurisdiction courts do exist in our database, particularly judges who have sat on courts within the last 20 years. Our team tracks changes to current judge rosters on a daily basis by monitoring government websites and many news sources for any sign of judicial change.
Attorney profiles are created once their admission, education and/or affiliation information is verified. Our team continuously updates the list—primarily from state bar and law firm websites. We do not have all currently licensed attorneys, but we are fairly close to it. We are currently expanding to include profiles of public and government attorneys.
