"I am hoping to cancel my directory listing and take it off the internet. I am just too busy for any more work."
"The cases come from all across the country – Maine, Florida, South Carolina, Minnesota, Washington, California and New York. All this and my only advertising is through SEAK. Not too bad I’d say."

"I got my first referral from the SEAK directory, a nice Will Contest case out of Naples, Florida from a law firm I’ve not worked with before. It seems your directory works pretty well, but you knew that already. My fees from this case should cover the SEAK directory charge for the next century or so."
"Thank you, Alex! This case looks to fit perfectly with my expertise and I will get in contact with the attorney. I am happy that I invested in listing in the SEAK directory. I have received several inquiries and new cases as a result and my practice is flourishing!"
"I just wanted to reach out to you and say thank you so much for all your guidance and having us list in your directory! We have gotten so much work this year after we took out the listing with your company and it continues to snowball. We now have repeat customers and new ones coming in almost weekly! I would highly recommend your services to anyone looking to grow their expert witness practice!"

"SEAK is the best!!! I have used their Directory for more than a decade."
"I thoroughly enjoyed your recent seminar in San Diego, and decided to list my services with SEAK in your directory. That was on January 24,and I think my listing took about a week to finalize. Today is February 5th and I am pleased to report to you that I have been contacted three times since then (twice yesterday!) to retain my services. I am needless to say very impressed and I have already been paid more than my annual fee for my listing."
"I continue to be extraordinarily busy with work using only SEAK for advertising. This week I have had two referrals that I just cannot believe and relate directly to what you have been preaching to me and anyone that goes to your course. Each referral is paying me $600/hour without batting an eye. I have cases in Vermont, Michigan and Arkansas that I am working on now. It truly astounds me because the only way they can find me is SEAK or word of mouth. I am writing to you because I make a lot of money doing something you taught me over the years and the return on my investment with SEAK is supersonic. Thanks."
"Thank you for the expert witness referral. Since I attended your SEAK course 2 summers ago on Cape Cod, I have been an Expert Witness for 18 cases!!! I Love ending my career this way!!! Thank you!!"

"I wanted to let you know that I have received great exposure from using SEAK's expert witness directory. I have been on the directory for less than a year and have received many phone calls."
"I signed up for the SEAK Expert Witness Directory about 8 days ago, along with 5 referral sites others that were recommended in your books more recently. Within 2-4 days I had two attorney calls. One from Alaska! They said they saw my ad on SEAK..Wow!"
"I have to tell you I am very impressed with SEAK Directory. The exact same week you posted my info, I had a call, discussion, and agreement. The retainer came before the end of the week and therefore I signed up with SEAK, got hired, received retainer all within 5 days of you posting my info. To get your fee back in five days is just amazing. Investment well spent for sure. Since that time I have had multiple calls that have worked out fine. Obviously not every call has turned into work, but some have, and they are good cases. I am very pleased and appreciate it very much."
"I have already had my first request from an attorney's office, one week after my [SEAK listing] was completed."
"I want to thank you again for this referral! Last week I received a retainer agreement from the attorney and then conducted a site investigation in Buffalo NY. It looks to be an interesting case! I greatly appreciate you thinking of me and connecting me up with them!"

"I can't thank you enough for all that you and SEAK have done for me. It has made me a better physician by forcing me to keep up with the literature. And I really feel good about what I have been able to do for doctors and patients alike. Over the past few years since I started going to SEAK conferences, I have been doing about 12-16 cases a year, 50/50 plaintiff/defense, and earning $100K a year. With declining reimbursements, this has helped me immensely."
"I have not done any other advertising or marketing other than the [SEAK] directory. Just off the SEAK directory, I have been retained in Ohio, Idaho and West Virginia. Just got a call last week on a case in Kansas City, MO and waiting for attorney to send me synopsis of case - found my name in the directory. So, from my perspective, and in terms of the Gen X'ers - you guys Rock!"

The retaining lawyer shared that she was a big fan of SEAK and her firm has had excellent results from all the experts they have hired from the SEAK Directory. It’s not every day we hear good news, so I thought I would pass on the fact that your SEAK National Directory of Experts is well received in the industry and is effective.”

“ I JUST GOT MY FIRST CLIENT FROM SEAK! The attorney said, “I never use expert sites but I got on the internet and you popped up right away!” The site he found was SEAK. I will keep close track of all referrals, but that was pretty amazing. Thank you for putting it all together so quickly --- I hope to have a growing, long-term relationship with SEAK.

"I joined 2 other directories, I have only had referrals from SEAK.... The referrals seem to be "all or none" as I will get none for 1- 2 months and then 3-4 for the next 2 months....Last year I received roughly 10-12 cases. Thank you."
"Thanks for the referral. I spoke with [the attorney] and possibly can assist him and his client. SEAK provides many attorney contacts and engagements to my firm."
