As a lawyer, you may find that the expert you’re deposing has been deposed many more times than you have taken a deposition. A good first questions to ask an expert is, “How many times have you been deposed?” The answer to this question sets the next series of questions.

In a recent set of post-trial juror interviews, the jurors we spoke to detailed how the believability of the plaintiff’s expert witness had them strongly favoring the plaintiff. …That is, until the defense attorney caused the expert to fall apart on cross-examination. They described the experience of watching this attorney dismantle the witness as akin to being in court with Perry Mason – and had referred to the attorney by that very name for the rest of trial.

An expert witness (EW) should, first and foremost, be considered to have expert knowledge relating to the particular subject matter of his/her field, but the role is evolving.
