One way to establish the credibility or validity of a case is for the attorney to provide expert witness testimony relating to the matter before the court. The attorney is typically not an expert in the particulars of his or her case. They are experts at the law and cannot speak with authority to matters outside their realm of expertise. Beryl Project Engineering provides qualified expert witness services for matters pertaining to structural engineering and construction.
What Constitutes an Expert Witness?
An expert witness is a person who possesses a level of knowledge, skill, and experience on a subject that enables them to render an informed opinion. Expert witness services are typically employed in matters pertaining to:
- Other specialty areas
Competent attorneys will attempt to vet a potential expert witness by examining the expert’s professional and educational background, professional experience, licensing history, litigation history, disciplinary history, and any prior witness testimony and challenges. This is vitally important for the attorney’s case. A supposed expert witness who renders an opinion under oath and is then proven to be categorically mistaken does more harm than good to the attorney’s case.
