This book represents the collected wisdom of experienced litigators who provide a step-by-step guide to researching, retaining, and working with an expert witness.

It offers cogent insights and guidance from pre-engagement of the expert through preparation and testimony, or deposition and cross. It is an invaluable addition to every trial lawyer's library."
