Expert Witness Testimony
Expert witness testimony is a service O’Connor offers in conjunction to its litigation support. As expert witnesses, our primary responsibility is to develop and support a credible opinion of value – in respect to the standards of the court. Both opposing counsel and the expert witness representing the other party will likely carefully review and scrutinize the expert’s underlying data, analysis and final report. Expert witnesses who develop a credible opinion of value and are able to effectively articulate it help to effect resolution of cases prior to trial.
Our expert witness approach is to be an advocate for the analysis and opinion: reasonable, credible and supportable. We collaborate with legal counsel to directly discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the case. Although a credible report from our team may not comply with the exact preference of the party or counsel, it is an effective method to provide counsel with the insights they need to effectively resolve cases.
