If you are a litigator, then you understand that a well-received expert is a vital segment of your winning case. All trial lawyers confront many issues when dealing with experts, including skepticism from the court, a high cost for your client, and resentful jurors who fear the expert is arrogant. In this Third Edition, authors Paul Zwier and David Malone examine the rules of evidence and ethics that govern the relationship of experts to lawyers, experts to juries, and experts to courts all in a manner that resolves these issues.

Effective Expert Testimony now provides the litigator more guidance concerning what can be discovered pretrial including information selected by the attorney. Additionally, you will find information on case law, rules, and statutes that specify how the expert may communicate with the hiring attorney before submitting an opinion.
