Dr. Broda-Bahm recommends an effective expert witness needs to:

  • Convey the need for the expert opinion
  • Show why your analysis is better than the analysis of a competing expert

  • Start with what you can show, then work back to what you can tell
  • Emphasize your teaching ability as much as you emphasize your expertise
