Dines’ Potpourri of Advice

1.

Read your client-lawyer’s entire case file, including the narrative, thoroughly and as often as necessary to understand all the known facts. Ask for more information from your client-attorney if needed.

2.

Prepare a list of questions (with answers) for your attorney that he can ask you during the qualification phase as an expert witness.

3.

Address your findings in a professional and business like manner. Be eloquent, clear and precise. Your demeanor should be proper.

4.

Obtain a predetermined retainer. Your attorney may request a retainer agreement. This is okay. But get you initial retainer up-front. Remember the slogan of small general stores throughout the country in the late 19th century: “ Cash makes no enemies.”

5.

Never become an advocate or hired gun. Your mission is to determine certain facts within your expertise, and testify about them. That’s all.
