  • Description

    Expert witnesses are a critical component in assisting attorneys by making sure the client’s best interest is at the forefront of a case. Making sure everyone is on the same page, verifying the quality and quantity of available documentation, theories of liability and the cause of damages are all essential in increasing the likelihood of success.

    This CLE course will address the importance of the initial witness retention as well as their support throughout the trial. The course is designed to alert legal counsel on how to best utilize experts to serve their clients and will use construction-related litigation as examples of the scenarios in which this might arise.
