Expert Witness Services - An expert witness is a specialist in a subject, often technical, who may present his/her expert opinion without having been a witness to any occurrence relating to the lawsuit or criminal case.

When you hire an Expert Witness you expect someone who not only meets the legal qualifications, but someone who can also explain difficult and technical concepts in plain, ordinary, and understandable language. You need someone with the technical understanding and confidence that only a mix of maturity, experience and education can provide.
