Archived Webinar Recording.   VPS StraightTalk Webinar Series: Confessions of Two Reluctant Expert Witnesses and a Few Lessons Learned Over the Years with Z. Christopher Mercer, FASA, CFA, ABAR and Scott A. Womack, ASA, MAFF

In a litigation environment, experience matters. If you don’t have experience, you can learn from others. In the upcoming VPS StraightTalk webinar, Chris Mercer and his colleague Scott Womack, draw from more than 45 years of combined testimony experience to show you how to avoid mistakes and learn the techniques that will make you a better expert witness.

When Chris and Scott began testifying as expert witnesses, like most BV analysts, they didn’t have a clue about what to do or how to do it. Since then, they have testified scores of times and learned some important lessons the hard way.

In this session, you will have an opportunity to benefit from their knowledge and experience to up your game. If you are starting out as an expert witness, this presentation is a must. If you are an experienced witness, you will find surprising insights to make deposition and trial testimony more effective.
