Cross Examination of the Defense Expert

In a hotly contested liability case, success or failure can come down to the strength of the defense experts. These experts can be skilled, polished, and believable – and if not controlled, your biggest problem in the case.

In this interactive session, you will learn how to take on the defense expert with effective techniques that will expose their bias and undermine their credibility. Using a real-life case file, you will practice cross-examining a seasoned defense expert in a supportive educational environment, where constructive feedback will be provided. You will learn from your own experiences, as well as from watching others perform the same tasks.

Some of the techniques you will learn include:

  • Calling the defense expert in your case in chief
  • Using deposition video clips
  • Negative space
  • Demeanor and physicality
  • Using the Elmo and roadmaps
  • Trapping questions

Prior to the event, participants will be required to attend a Zoom meeting, where the case file will be shared, and relationships will be formed. The goal of the program is to give you a roadmap for success in taking on one of the most challenging parts of a trial.
