A get-to-the-point, no-nonsense book that will assist litigators whether experienced or not, for all their needs in the successful use and presentation of expert witnesses. An essential book to assist litigators, whether experienced or neophytes, to navigate through the intricacies of all the issues of experts whether for trial, mediation, and administrative forums.

Dan Bruch, Partner - Swartz Campbell LLC

As a trial lawyer who has tried cases for 35 years in many states, I believe this is the resource on expert witnesses that all litigators must have on their desks and in their briefcases. The format of relevant questions and then answers with cites to sources makes this a smart and effective comprehensive guide.
