However, Malone and Zwier point out how to “get to” unintimidated experts; they “may lose sight of the deposing attorney’s goal, which is to find means to diminish the expert’s credibility or to challenge the bases for the expert’s opinions.”

Call it arrogant. “Because they think they are safe within their own field, experts at deposition may be more willing to provide explanations and lengthy answers, to volunteer information, and to educate their ignorant but interested students.”

They advise lawyers to smile, nod, lean forward, maintain eye contact, and ask open questions to “play” the expert. Encourage them to teach at the deposition.
