Effective Expert Testimony / Edition 3 available in Paperback
What People are Saying About This
Effective Expert Testimony is a valuable treatise on working with, presenting, and cross-examining expert witnesses. In a remarkable, thorough discussion of the variety of issues and concerns attorneys face in dealing with experts, Zwier and Malone provide useful insights, techniques, and solutions. For the experienced trial lawyer, Effective Expert Testimony will hit home as over and over the reader will say, 'That's what I do; now I understand why.' For the novice, Effective Expert Testimony will sharply reduce the learning curve by providing a road map to this important and difficult piece of trial practice. In addition, Effective Expert Testimony is written in a manner that makes it accessible for the non-lawyer. Because it is so accessible, it should be required reading for every expert who plans to testify in court.
Malone and Zwier provide excellent analyses of the practical effects of applicable rules of procedure and evidence, and a first-rate discussion of Daubert and its progeny. Effective Expert Testimony is in the same class with Dennis Suplee's The Deposition Handbook and Thomas Mauet's Trial Techniques, and I will recommend that our litigators put it on their office library shelves.
Effective Expert Testimony is a great resource for fast answers to frequently asked questions regarding expert witnesses. Well-written, easy to read, and filled with useful information, this book is a great addition to any lawyer's library.
