If you are a litigator, then you understand that a well-received expert is a vital segment of your winning case. All trial lawyers confront many issues when dealing with experts, including skepticism from the court, a high cost for your client, and resentful jurors who fear the expert is arrogant. In this Third Edition, authors Paul Zwier and David Malone examine the rules of evidence and ethics that govern the relationship of experts to lawyers, experts to juries, and experts to courts all in a manner that resolves these issues.
Effective Expert Testimony now provides the litigator more guidance concerning what can be discovered pretrial including information selected by the attorney. Additionally, you will find information on case law, rules, and statutes that specify how the expert may communicate with the hiring attorney before submitting an opinion.

A number of attorneys have read Effective Expert Testmony and this is what they have to say:
Michael R. Feagley, trial lawyer and partner with Mayer, Brown & Platt in Chicago, Illinois, says that Effective Expert Testimony is "... in the same class with Dennis Suplee's The Deposition Handbook and Thomas Mauet's Trial Techniques." He also says that "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. I will recommend that our litigators put it on their office library shelves."
Donna R. Davis, of the Davis Law Firm in Knoxville, Tennessee, has this to say about the book: "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."
Michael H. Ginsberg, of Jones, Day, Reavis & Pogue, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, says: "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."
Fred H. Bartlit, Jr., of Bartlit, Beck, Herman, Palenchar & Scott, Chicago, Illinois, says: "These days almost every case involves multiple experts. But the ins and outs of working with experts has received relatively little attention. This book fills that gap. It provides an important service for all trial lawyers who are working with expert witnesses. Zwier and Malone also provide good practical advice on the expert's trial presentation, particularly on the use of exhibits and fruitful approaches to cross-examination. The discussion of Daubert and Kumho highlight the new concerns that lawyers must keep in mind throughout the expert engagement."About the Author:
