Techniques to Help Your Attorney Prepare The Expert for Testimony to Establish Credibility

A successful expert witness must be both “right” and believed by the trier of fact. In this important program, our speaker draws on personal experience to explain how credibility is established, maintained and sometimes lost in translation.

The talking points include:
1) When, if, and how to leave your opinions "open ended;" 
2) Substance of an expert’s Retainer Agreement/Engagement Letter; 
3) Money management relative to the engagement itself; 
4) Issues relating to the "scope" of the engagement/formal expert designation; 
5) Serving as a “Consultant” v. "Designated Expert;" 
6) Due diligence regarding the attorneys involved, the parties and/or subject matter prior to accepting engagement; 
7) Practice/Rehearsal; and 
8) Spoliation of evidence.
