Expert Witness: Sludge Treatment

The main expert witness job on the books was settled this afternoon, shortly before I was due to appear in court for cross examination.

It was the biggest expert witness job I have done, with three part 35 compliant reports, a meeting of experts, and all preparations for cross examination in a London court.

The client was very happy with my "excellent" reports. The training I have had in report writing, and the meeting of experts proved invaluable, (especially the latter, in view of the lack of understanding of the opposing "expert" of both the technical issues and how to conduct a meeting of experts).

My interactions with the opposing expert reminded me of something George Bernard Shaw once said "Never wrestle with pigs. You both get dirty and the pig likes it.”
