Unique Solution:

While developing one of many websites for Mr. Summers for his company, Silicon Valley Expert Witness Group the challenge was to develop a way for client Attorneys to search then select prospective high-technology expert witnesses from an extensive online database of over 900 CV’s. The Attorney can select and save the numbered CV’s and e-mail a complete list to one of Silicon Valley Expert Witness’s Case Managers to begin the proffering process.

Guild West Agency began the process by building a back-end PHP database and custom programming that would simplify the process allowing the Attorney/Client to select and save CV’s and when ready the website generates a complete e-mail and sends it to the appropriate Case Manager. Our in depth understanding of the client, the technology and their individual needs allowed us to add in some additional functionality that streamlined the process for all involved.
