When an “Expert Witness” is needed

Funny thing, the least credible witness in court is the person who does little else but pose as an Expert Witness. That's not us.

A general-purpose “expert” is no expert at all. Law researchers have shown that the witness with the most impact on judges and juries is a respected and credible specialist in the relevant subject-matter, particularly someone who has held elected offices in professional bodies and government committees (ahem, ahem).

It is true that Dr. Ben Barkow has served as an expert in three-dozen cases or so ranging from slips and falls to the aftermath of the World Trade Center disaster. But each instance has been based on subject-matter expertise and relevant professional distinctions. That is why Dr. Barkow has never been denied status as an Expert Witness in the U.S. or Canada. Granted, Ben also has a certain unflappable savoir-faire as a witness and writes coherent, well-structured prose, may we modestly add.

We have strengths in the following fields:

U.S. and Canada
Dr. Barkow is a citizen (and depending on the weather, resident) of both the U.S. and Canada and he has served as an expert in both countries.
