Our process is described in "How We Work with Attorneys."
The Ideal Expert
We have surveyed our client attorneys over the years and learned what they consider an ideal expert. In addition to credentials and experience, attorneys seek consultants who project sincere enthusiasm for their expertise. Conversely, the last thing they want is someone who comes off as a hired gun with a defensive ego. Accordingly…
When Opine screens an expert, we look for…
- enthusiasm for their subject expertise,
- communication skills of a great teacher,
- curiosity of a great student,
- thoughtfulness and conscientious,
- authorship in or other contributions to the body of knowledge in subject area,
- common courtesy and honesty.
Enabling Success of the Client-Expert Relationship
Having provided expert witness services for fifteen years, we have also learned what can be the most troubling relational issues between lawyers and their experts. These boil down to…
- scheduling and
- adaptability to changing circumstances.
Along with exceptional experts, Opine provides exceptional administrative support, enabling the success of these relationships.
