Document Reviews have the advantage, at least initially, of being a private opinion that can be useful in determining strategy and sometimes early settlement. There of course caveats with document reviews: they are only as good as the quality of the documentation and how recent it is. There are also caveats that the person in question has not been personally interviewed and examined.
