Expert Witness in legal proceedings is there to assist and give evidence and opinion in particular area of expertise.
It requires preparation and stamina. This is because when on a stand the expert is like a clay pigeon, with opposing barrister taking shots trying to discredit witness testimony , undermine his credibility and cut his confidence to shreds.
Most of the time it’s unpleasant experience and can be stressful and harrowing.
Recently however I had a much better experience.
My client was a lovely young lady and she brought a friend for support. There I was sitting between two lovely ladies playing a hero and getting paid handsomely for it.
The opposing barrister was a dud, sitting between two ugly farts. Eat your heart out.
Ha Ha. This is better than a Hollywood script!
