PRLog - Dec. 12, 2012 - WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Washington, DC -- Ediscoveryopinions.com announced today the official launch of its website. The site has a unique twist. It is a review aggregator—for legal software products and vendor services. It's simple really. For a given legal software product, ediscoveryopinions.com shows reviews of the product by attorneys, consultants, paralegals, and Chief Information Officers. Not just anyone, though, can write a review. Reviewers must be selected for inclusion.

“Reviewers are generally selected for inclusion based on their prominence and reputation in the industry,” says Seth Shich, co-founder of ediscoveryopinions.com.“We try very hard to ensure that the reviewers have no affiliation or ties to the legal software and/or services they are reviewing. And, of course, it goes without saying that we have absolutely no affiliation with any vendor or software product reviewed on our site. We never cherry-pick reviews to favor one vendor over another.”

Seth Shich, co-founder of eDiscovery Opinions, has high expectations for the site. Although currently in its beta stage, he hopes ediscoveryopinions.com will one day cover all legal software products and services offered to attorneys and law firms. Coverage by ediscoveryopinions.com, he says, will include: hosting providers, consulting services, and software for the entire EDRM lifecycle (Information Governance, Identification, Preservation, Collection, Processing, Analysis, and Review).”

Ediscoveryopinions.com will also include a glossary of ediscovery terms for the electronic discovery industry. As many attorneys in this space would no doubt admit, it is a challenge to draw comparisons between different software products in this field. “It is almost like the tower of babel,” says Seth. “What one vendor calls 'Early Case Assessment,' another will call 'Early Cost Assessment' and a third will call 'Early Data Assessment'. There are already four different terms I have seen used to describe predictive coding: Technology Assisted Review, Predictive Analytics, Automated Coding, and Machine Intelligence. I think there is a lot of room for improving transparency in this industry.” He and his partner, Stephen Kunath, intend to do just that.

Ediscoveryopinions.com facilitates attorneys and chief information officers in making more informed decisions about purchasing legal software and services. It is founded by Seth Shich and Stephen Kunath. Seth works for the Electronic Discovery Institute, where he serves as a project director, and is currently pursuing his JD at Georgetown Law. Stephen Kunath is a search and retrieval consultant and has worked on a number of private sector, defense, and government projects. He is currently finishing a PhD in Computational Linguistics at Georgetown, and has graduate degrees from George Mason University and the University of Virginia in engineering
