Expert Witness

What Makes a Good Witness

What Makes a Bad Witness

The following are red flags of inadequate expert witness testimony:

  1. Exhibits are unclear by being too small, poorly reproduced or not used at all;
  2. The explanation is vague, terminology is unfamiliar, or does not make sense; and…
  3. The witness seems to expect the trier of fact to “trust” them and their credentials and de-emphasizes the evidence of the handwriting itself.

Is the opposing expert's opinion incomplete? Erroneous? Are their credentials valid?
