The Boot Camps

Intensive three-day programs designed to develop and enhance the skills of professionals who serve as expert witnesses and the attorneys who present and cross-examine them. The courtroom can be a challenging environment for both attorneys and expert witnesses as they match their skills and wits in the presentation of expert testimony. Trial attorneys must be skilled in the strategic presentation of their own experts and for the effective cross-examination of their adversary’s experts. Expert witnesses, skilled in their technical disciplines, must also understand the dynamics of deposition and trial and possess exemplary communication and persuasion skills.

Business Damages for Attorneys

Attorneys who practice in the areas of business litigation, family law, employment law, intellectual property law, and other areas involving financial issues typically retain CPA’s, valuation experts, and economists to present expert testimony relating to the financial issues. Attorneys who have an understanding of the expert’s work are much better positioned to use the expert’s analysis most effectively throughout the proceeding, craft direct examination that will present the expert to be most credible and persuasive, and to be prepared to strategically cross-examine the opposing expert.
