Whether you are handling a basic auto tort, a medical malpractice case, or a complex business valuation dispute, careful presentation of your expert - or discrediting your opponent’s expert - is critical to your case.
Qualification of the expert continues to be a very critical stage of any case and the process of presenting and challenging the qualifications of an expert can become almost a mini trial. Our panel of experienced attorneys will provide insights about using experts at different stages of trial. Hear about how to prepare your expert for a deposition, deciding whether to depose the opponent’s expert, how to discredit your opponent’s expert, and what to do after depositions have been taken. Judicial perspective included throughout!
In an engaging discourse, our practitioners and a Superior Court judge will share their experiences and offer pointers on how to present, challenge and knock out expert testimony.
This course will ensure practitioners are prepared to present or challenge a witness deemed to be an expert. This program is a must for any successful plaintiff or defense attorney!
