Request the Files of the Expert Before the Deposition

Long before you take the deposition of the adverse expert you should serve a request for the files and records of the expert. You need those files of the adverse expert witness to determine if you really need to take the deposition. You need to decide whether a deposition by you will show the other side how strong their expert is, in a case that is going to settle before trial? Will a deposition by you hurt you by preparing their expert to better withstand your cross-examination at trial?

Are you really going to be learning anything by taking the deposition? You need the adverse expert's files before you decide to take his/her deposition.

You also need the files of the expert, long before you take the deposition of the adverse expert, because you need to understand the other side’s theory of the case for your own investigation and for your own expert’s study.

And you also need to demand the files of the adverse expert because…. Need I go on?

You know you need a bulletproof, inclusive, “they can’t evade this”, demand for those files and other items you need from that adverse expert.

Save 75%, or more, of your preparation time, and still be better prepared.

Leonard H. Bucklin Dear Fellow Attorney,

While practicing for the last 35 years, in a successful five state litigation practice, I developed and refined a comprehensive set of litigation forms. They saved me lots of time, and made me more effective for my clients.

Good litigation forms do more than make you more effective in the handling of litigation. Good litigation forms build client morale and appreciation for your expertise as a trial attorney. If you send your client a copy of everything you serve on the other side — and you should — it is an inexpensive way of reminding even the most hardened litigation manager that you are DOING things for them. What really makes you shine is when what you send is obviously the result of your affirmative action. Clients do notice that.

Of course, client appreciation is only a sidelight of the benefit of a well thought out form. You get results in the litigation! That is the benefit of using a LawyerTrialForms™ copyrighted form. You get results!

Most attorneys have no real system of developed forms.. They waste time, and they miss issues and questions they should ask, or miss actions they should take.

But that doesn’t have to be you.

My Request for Adverse Expert’s Files is a mentor in a box, coaching you on the points you should consider.

Just think. For a few dollars you get a senior trial attorney as a mentor, a well drafted request for the items you need, and a form you can use over and over, case after case. This is certainly a good investment.

Three big points:

  • The Request for Adverse Expert’s Files will allow you to send out your notice without a half hour of drafting. Pull the form up on your computer. Check that it does what you want in this specific case. Make any changes needed (but we bet in most cases all you will do in insert the case name and the name of the adverse expert). Send it out. Five minutes and you are done.
  • The Request for Adverse Expert’s Files will give you the confidence of knowing that an expert trial attorney has mentored you on items to include, so you are not forgetting critical items.
  • The Request for Adverse Expert’s Files is a very low investment with a high value return.

If Request for Adverse Expert’s Files saves you just one-quarter hour of time – ever – it will have paid for itself. Attorneys who are using my system forms to turn out quick demands for the adverse expert’s forms are saving valuable time every year. You can own Request for Adverse Expert’s Files for the price of only $18.

All The Best,
Leonard H. Bucklin
