Over the years, my Cross-exam of Adverse Expert Witness - Deposition Checklist form will save you hours of depo and trial prep time -- a real value for the time it saves you!
In many cases, there is an expert on your side and an expert on the other side. Which expert the jury believes (and the settlement value of your case) may hang on the outcome of your cross-examine deposition of the adverse expert.
An attorney who cross-exams the adverse expert well in a deposition ends up with a case worth more in settlement, and with ammunition to use against the expert at a trial.
On the other hand, the deposing attorney who misses areas that could have detracted from the adverse expert's opinion, or who fumbles and hesitates so that the expert becomes the effective ruler of the deposition, sees the settlement value of the case plummet.
There is no question which attorney you want to be.
Before I had a set of comprehensive deposition checklists, for all the standard questions in the standard types of depositions, I would spend hours getting my notes ready for a deposition.
I would spend all that time --- before I had a set of comprehensive depositions checklist --- so I could ask all the right questions in a deposition. But --- after 35 years of litigation, I had developed wonderful checklists that I could whip out and be half way to final depo or trial question preparation even without lifting another finger. I had no trouble being fully prepared, sometimes in a half-hour.
The fact is, most attorneys don't like being fully prepared for a deposition for one simple reason:
They do not want to spend the time.
How would you feel if I could show you a very inexpensive way to be better prepared and quicker than you ever have been for a deposition of an expert? What if I could give you a "check the box" approach to preparing 3/4 or more of your questions to ask the other side's expert in a products case, a premises liability case, or any kind of case?
Better yet, what if I could show you how to do this and save you 50, 60 even 75% of the time it now takes you to get your outline and questions ready to take on the adverse expert witness at the deposition.
The truth is that 3/4 or more of the questions you should be asking the adverse expert are standard questions. You have to ask them, so items you do not know about cannot rise up and stab you in the back at trial. If you ask the question, then the answer can be the item the jury will use to downgrade the adverse expert and pick your expert's opinion instead.
You only need a long checklist outline of cross-examination questions from which you can pick and choose those which apply to your case. That is a lot better and faster than starting to build your questions with a blank sheet of paper or a clear document on the computer screen.
Most attorneys have no real system to prepare for a deposition of the adverse expert. They waste time, and they miss issues and questions they should ask.
But that doesn't have to be you.

In fact, after I got used to using checklists like this, I could just grab the adverse expert's report and my checklist and the file, and jump in a taxi to go take the adverse expert's deposition. During the travel time I could pencil into the checklist outline the special items for my case that I needed to cover. I could spend time "thinking". That's important.

Every case is unique, and the lawyer who wins is the lawyer who spends time developing the unique aspects of the case to favor his/her side.
