Are there any businesses or specialists that provide litigation appraisals? Specifically I’m looking for someone that could review a case summary and/or court documents (filed complaint, motions, etc.) and then provide their best guess at the probability of a settlement, favorable trial outcome, likely settlement, and estimated legal fees.
I realize that these things are wild cards but, in the potential life-altering realm of litigation, best guesses would certainly be better than flying blind given the huge costs of litigation. A second opinion from another attorney is an option but their feedback might be hampered by a lack of having litigated similar cases and perhaps a conflict of interest such as a desire to be retained. Before going that route, I’d rather see if there were specialists providing such services.
