DepoConnect was launched by the Texas Trial Lawyers Association ("TTLA") 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, make them fully searchable, and reduce research costs.
During 1998 and 1999, DepoConnect was a recognized success by trial lawyers, and 48 trial lawyer associations partnered in the effort to create the largest database available for expert investigations.
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 Association Web sites, providing a single-stop search experience for trial lawyers. Today, TrialSmith has built and hosts more than 45 association Web sites.
