Direct and Cross Examination of an Expert Witness

This is a focused program on the application of the laws of evidence and practical approaches to present your expert testimony to a Judge and get it in evidence. Your case warrants expert testimony. Your client has spent a substantial fees and costs to get the expert to the stand. You must assure your expert presents a powerful opinion for consideration by the Judge. Your success in the direct exam eliminates much of the cross exam before it starts! This presentation will help you assist your expert to tell a compelling story without objections of leading the witness; present understandable testimony; rules for direct exam of experts; objections to anticipate; preparation of the expert (never an outline of questions) and admitting the expert report. Spend one hour and get a refreshing view of another tool for your toolbox.
