Your expert’s credibility must withstand scrutiny. They can have all the degrees, publications and talks in the world and still fold under pressure, blowing up your case during deposition or trial.
While tempting to skip, prepping your expert for deposition, and direct and cross examinations is necessary.
Working with your experts to develop the story keeps everyone on the same page, helps ensure you have the most supportable case, and benefits experts, attorneys, and your client.
Many unsuccessful expert witness depositions could have been prevented with the right preparation and support. This can be said for even the most seasoned experts, as it should never be assumed preparation is not required.
