Expert Witness

Provencher has Expert Witnesses qualified in all aspects of Property and Liability claim related matters.

What qualifies a person as an expert witness?

According to the Federal Rule of Evidence 702 an Expert Witness is a witness who, due to their knowledge, skill, experience, training, or education, may give testimony in the form of an opinion. The purpose of allowing expert testimony is to assist the trier of fact to understand the evidence or to determine a fact in issue.

Selection of an expert:

An effective Expert Witness is someone who has had prior experience in deposition testimony and is respected within the industry for their vast experience and credibility in this regard. Not every potential expert witness is willing to submit to the rigors of giving a deposition. Nothing can quite prepare you for an eight-hour deposition as an expert where the other side is attempting to discredit your testimony, your background and reputation as an industry expert.

Remember, an Expert can be an invaluable asset to you in preparing for and/or winning a case.
