An expert witness can make or break your case. If your expert does well, your case is strong; but if your expert is weak—and fails to impress your jury—it can be devastating.

Trial Guides invites you to learn how to select and prepare your expert witnesses for deposition and trial with John G. Simon, a seasoned trial attorney and member of the Inner Circle of Advocates. John will discuss several proven methods for selecting and preparing quality experts who can provide the foundation for a winning case.

John will discuss how to identify the known pitfalls that await your expert and how to avoid them with proper preparation. Finally, he will provide several real-life examples of how these selection and preparation methods have been used to build a winning case.
This comprehensive seminar will also cover:

  • Reviewing your expert’s qualifications
  • Evaluating your expert’s ability to communicate
  • Background checks, as well as reference checks
  • Discoverability of written communications
  • When your expert’s opinions were formulated
  • Keeping track of materials sent to your expert
  • The difference between a consulting versus testifying expert
  • Being asked to assume facts not in evidence
  • Interpreting expert witness reports
  • Standing your ground and defending your opinions

As your expert witness goes, so does your case. A well-qualified and properly prepared expert is one of the most important things you can do to advance your client’s case.
