About this Book
Attacking Adverse Experts is a step-by-step guide to investigating, evaluating, and attacking the adverse expert in civil cases. It outlines tactics you can use to gather information about the adverse expert, both in the discovery process and on your own to: take an effective expert deposition; evaluate the adverse expert's analysis of the key issues; move to exclude his testimony; cross-examine him effectively when he testifies at trial; handle voir dire, opening statement, closing argument, and other aspects of the trial to maximize the effectiveness of your attack on the adverse expert; and even to successfully handle appeals regarding experts.
In addition, the book includes a CD-ROM of appendix material that provides checklists you can put to immediate use in your practice and outlines dozens of citations to critical rules, statutes, cases, and other law for lawyers litigating state or federal cases in each state, as well as the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
Trial lawyer and professor Stephen D. Easton provides a comprehensive review of well-established tactics for expert cases and offers innovative techniques to increase your effectiveness. Provocative and insightful, Attacking Adverse Experts will help you find and relentlessly expose every crack, weakness or fallacy in the work of an adverse expert.
"Attacking Adverse Experts by Steve Easton is an authoritative resource on the law of expert witnesses and on proven methods for attacking your opponent's experts before and during trial. Full of both citations to authority and practical advice, this book should be on the shelf of every trial lawyer."
