We regret to announce the closure of TellFinder. Sadly, our funding has come to an end and extensive efforts to secure additional funding have been unsuccessful. 


The TellFinder tool will close operations on May 31, 2023. 


We understand this may have an impact on your work. Here are some common questions:

  • How do I access TellFinder data?

    • From now until May 31, 2023, TellFinder’s tool and data will remain accessible, with no changes, at


  • I have an ongoing or upcoming trial. Can TellFinder still help?

    • You can request TellFinder data (webpage reconstructions) until August 31, 2023. 

    • You can request business records certification, and/or expert witness testimony for the foreseeable future, as long as you have secured the TellFinder data by August 31, 2023. Expert witness testimony is limited based on staffing availability.

    • Both services are available by contacting 

    • These paid services are provided on a contract basis.

  • TellFinder data (webpage reconstructions) for trials will include up-to-date results through May 31, 2023.

  • Where else can I get data like TellFinder after it’s gone?
