Expert Witness Services
An expert witness is someone who possesses specialized knowledge and experience in a subject matter and is called to testify in a court of law.
An expert witness is first and foremost a teacher. The expert witness must take complicated scientific principles and results and distill this information into a form that everyone in the courtroom can understand. This must also be done in an unbiased manner to maintain the scientific integrity of the results: “the data is what the data is”.
The ultimate end of many forensic examinations is the courtroom. Having someone who is competent, experienced, and can explain complicated concepts and conclusions in a way a jury will understand the material is imperative.
