Expert Witness

ex·pert wit·ness

  1. A person who is permitted to testify at a trial because of special knowledge or proficiency in a particular field that is relevant to the case.

An expert testifying in a United States federal court must satisfy the requirements of Federal Rule of Evidence 702.

Generally, under Rule 702, an expert is a person with “scientific, technical, or other specialized knowledge” who can “assist the trier of fact,” which is typically a jury.

A witness who is being offered as an expert must first establish his or her competency in the relevant field through an examination of his or her credentials.

The opposing attorney is permitted to conduct a check of the witness in order to challenge that witness’ qualifications.

If qualified by the court, then the expert may testify “in the form of an opinion or otherwise” so long as: “(1) the testimony is based upon sufficient facts or data, (2) the testimony is the product of reliable principles and methods, and (3) the witness has applied the principles and methods reliably to the facts of the case.”
