Requesting Expert Witness Testimony

If you are ever in a position where you are handling a case for a client who is being charged with a certain type of crime – whether it is a criminal or a civil case – you may find that you need an expert witness. We have a misconception in the general population where we assume the only witnesses who are going to testify in court are the ones who are going to have some relationship to the crime or the person who is on trial. But that is not always the case, and as a lawyer you will already know that.

Some of the people who are testifying in these situations are the ones who are giving expert witness testimony. So how can expert witness services help you? If you are helping your client who is going through with a trial, then you will know the prosecution is going to have an expert witness or two. These expert witnesses are those who have a familiarity with some topic that is related to the case, and they are the ones who are going to offer their opinion on whether certain statements are facts – or whether the statements are false.

When these matters are related to a financial issue, or something to do with accounting, then you are going to need an expert witness who is in that field. This expert witness is a person who will be able to give you the information that you want during the pre-trial or in-trial meetings. You will want to ask the right questions so you are 100 percent aware about the answers that you are going to get. Then you will have the confidence that you can put this person on the stand and ask questions that will help your client. And you will know they will answer the other side’s questions in the right way too.
