Pre-trial preparation includes:

  • Receiving the case: make sure that the case is complete and accurate, and that the notes made in the case file are present and legible.  Completely review the case file and any material that it references
  • Prepare your answers to questions regarding your accreditation as an expert in your field, prior cases or literature that directly relate to the circumstances of this particular case or to any testing evidence, and/or testing or interviews you may have conducted of witnesses, or the accused
  • Schedule a meeting with the attorney in order to review the case file and test results
  • Assist the attorney with any aides required during trial such as graphs and diagrams.  If you will be using power point or any type of formal presentation, make sure that you thoroughly rehearse
