There is no risk in having us find and present experts for you. We do not charge for the search and assessment work. If you select an expert we provide, our fee is embedded in the expert's hourly rate and is typically in the customary range.
Because of our dedication to service and quality, IMS ExpertServices has consistently shown high-growth. We were selected by the legal industry as Best Expert Witness Provider in the 2012 NLJ Best of the Legal Industry survey.
