Founded in 1972, and incorporated under Expert Resources, Inc.® in 1979, ERI works with law firms, corporations, government entities and insurance companies both nationally and internationally as an expert referral service. Our offices are headquartered in Peoria, Illinois. We can suggest experts in all fields of expertise.


  • Your telephone call, or your Confidential Inquiry - mailed, faxed or sent through our encrypted website puts you in touch quickly with one of our Expert Specialists.
  • ERI Specialists can help you identify the area of expertise you need or you can go to the Expertise Listing to assist you. You will want to discuss your request confidentially with a specialist before an expert is suggested to you.
  • ERI provides, at no cost, the name, address and telephone numbers, as well as curriculum vita and fee schedule for each expert suggested. To help you in your selection, we may suggest more than one expert.
  • The experts are independent contractors and set their own rates. Our fees are built into the expert’s rates which are sent to you when the expert is suggested. You do not obligate your firm by asking us to suggest experts to you. There is no charge to refer candidates to you. ERI will charge only if you use the expert or disclose their information.
  • ERI promptly puts you in touch with experts. Same day contact with an expert is available with a 90% response rate within 24 to 48 hours, if requested.
