How Custom Expert Witness Reports Benefit Attorneys
Attorneys have an obligation to perform competent due diligence when hiring or cross-examining an expert witness. They often seek input from colleagues, review CVs, and assess reported credentials and case experience. It is also critical for attorneys to research Daubert and other challenges to an expert’s testimony. Understanding an expert’s challenge history helps attorneys avoid surprises in the courtroom.
Courtroom Insight saves attorneys time and money by providing thorough, cost effective research in a short amount of time. This research helps attorneys focus their efforts on the critical aspects of an expert’s background and testimonial history.
