DepoConnect was launched by the Texas Trial Lawyers Association in December, 1997 as a specialized database of expert depositions from trial lawyers nationally. The site gave plaintiff lawyers a new way to quickly share litigation documents, making them fully searchable, reducing time and costs. Moreover, it was designed exclusively as a private network for plaintiff lawyers to better serves their cases and clients.
By 1999, DepoConnect was a recognized success by trial lawyers, and 48 trial lawyer associations joined the effort to create the largest database available for expert witness investigations, exclusively for plaintiffs.
In 2000, TrialSmith was incorporated as a subsidiary of Texas Trial Lawyers Association, and was separately funded to expand services and tools to support the plaintiff bar. Today, 78 trial lawyer associations and litigation groups in North America utilize TrialSmith services.
In 2004, TrialSmith began integrating its documents and litigation databases directly with trial lawyer association Web sites, providing single-search access to list server archives, depositions, Daubert challenges, disciplinary actions, and connection with plaintiff lawyers who have personal experience with hundreds of thousands of experts. Today, TrialSmith hosts more than 48 trial lawyer association Web sites, integrated with TrialSmith's databases and list server archives. The nation's largest litigation groups are also integrated with TrialSmith.
A major source of funding for TrialSmith's litigation bank, document databases and trial lawyer list servers is provided exclusively by Counsel Financial.
