Court Appointed Expert and Special Master
In many instances we can provide a significant benefit to all parties involved when we are invited as a neutral third party early in the process.
At Corodemus & Corodemus, L.L.C., we serve in the role of special discovery master in the pretrial discovery stages of complicated cases. We can look at a particular issue that has delayed or confused litigants in a particular case.
