If I should need an expert or rebuttal witness, will Nichols Consulting help me?
Yes. Often attorneys will call us seeking an expert witness. As previously mentioned, defense experts are often not needed when the case is properly prepared, however, there are a number of situations in which bringing a defense expert is appropriate. This is often true when the state has opened a door that the defense wishes to rebut, or often a well prepared defense will include having a defense expert prepared and available in case the cross of the state’s expert does not go as planned.
While Nichols Consulting has worked with experts of national reputation, often a local expert is more appropriate. In such cases Nichols Consulting will locate and prepare a local expert to provide a science-based presentation -- one which is very difficult to cross. Next Question
