Expert Witness Resource Round-Up


A brief selection of recent articles and resources:

Should experts collaborate or compete? This is the question addressed by attorney Robert Ambrogi in "Expert Secrecy: An Ethics Dilemna?" This article has generated several comments from readers.

The second part of Allan Griff's article "Why Do They Call Us Witnesses" (I mentioned the first part in an earlier post) has been published at the IMS website.

Dr. Perry Hookman has just published Medical Malpractice Expert Witnessing. Although it addresses the expert witness, it extensively covers issues faced by the defendant physician as well. As Dr. Hookman writes in the introduction, "I wrote this book because this is the kind of book I wish was available to me prior to my first harsh contact with the U.S. medical malpractice tort system."

Finally, with the vast information available about all of us on the Internet, I suggest you check out the Electronic Privacy Information Center's "Online Guide to Practical Privacy Tools." (Hat tip to Jim Calloway for the heads-up on this site.)

Hi Meredith,
First off, I just wanted to say that this blog has been very helpful to me. Secondly, as far as expert witness competition vs collaboration, I recall a case where this gentleman was called in as an expert witness. Another expert witness was called in to work with him and in the end they were a great help in the case.

Thank you Phil, for taking the time to comment. Collaboration, if handled wisely, can be a benefit to all.
