How to Make Sure Your Expert Witness Isn't a Lemon


There’s no “Yelp®” for experts.

Witnesses can be great and witnesses can be not so great. When faced with the latter there isn’t a useful plan in place for clients to share their stories of experiences with witnesses. The witnesses that can cause a problem for one client will likely cause problems for all. This white paper reviews why you can’t afford a bad expert witness and how to weed out the bad ones.
