Qualifying and Attacking Expert Witnesses

Perhaps no litigation task is more important than diluting the effect of the opposition's expert. This formidable challenge begins well before discovery and continues through settlement or trial.

Let Robert Clifford's Qualifying & Attacking Expert Witnesses show you how to dig deep for unreliable testimony, no matter how sterling the expert's credentials. The book details dozens of high-potential attacks, including:

•   Failure to consider other causes
•   Subjective testing
•   Insufficient sample
•   Anecdotal evidence
•   Temporal relationship
•   Erroneous extrapolation
•   Research prepared for litigation

With this helpful guide you will be able to disqualify, cross-examine, and impeach your opponent's expert, while effectively presenting your expert. You will also receive pattern questions, checklists, tactics, and case law for working with experts, and specific advice for medical, psychological, economic, physical facts, engineering, construction, insurance, employment, linguistic, document examination, legal malpractice, and criminal experts.
