Had the honor of sitting on a panel last night with Judges Bacal, Trentacosta and Wohlfeil of the San Diego Superior Court and Robert Francavilla of Casey Gerry for a SDCBA Civil Litigation Section program on the “Process of Trying A Case”. Part of yesterday’s “2018 Civil Lit Conference: Essentials for a Civil Litigator’s Toolbox”. I spoke on direct examination – that part of a trial that I, frankly, find the most difficult. Packed room. Great panel. Lots of fun. And I learned a few new things. Thanks to the SDCBA and the Civ Lit. Section for the opportunity!

Challenging opinions and attacking experts is case-specific and can be quite nuanced. Particular cases can and do provide opportunities to effectively attack the credibility, expertise and even bias of an expert, even a smart, experienced, well-prepared one. But, there will be times when the opposing expert has done a fine job and reached a spot-on, fully-supportable, opinion, but based on incomplete facts and faulty presumptions provided by counsel. In those cases, it is always better to challenge the opinion and not attack the expert. See my new article in San Diego Lawyer. https://issuu.com/sdcba/docs/san_diego_lawyer_mar_apr_2017_issuu/26
