In the litigious atmosphere of today, professionals are often asked to be expert witnesses in civil suits, or to simply provide services for mediations and forensic investigations. Join Dr. David Williams to learn what to expect when asked to participate in legal processes or forensic investigations, how to prepare, and how to minimize your business’ exposure to possible legal actions. 

Unlike most expert witness presentations presented by attorneys, Dr. David Williams brings to the table his experience as an expert witness in over 25 court actions.  In this webcast Dr. Williams will discuss ethical conduct and the role of the expert witness as a non-advocate. We’ll explore what is expected behavior throughout the process, how to handle oneself under pressure, and how to prepare for mediations, deposition and trial.

Additionally, Dr. Williams will outline how to conduct yourself as expert witness during depositions and trials representing yourself as a competent witness who is in control, reputable, believable, and most of all, an unbiased knowledgeable witness. Additionally, we’ll discuss related topics that will help you be an ethical, effective, and credible professional.
