Expert Witness Testimony FAQ


[notice title=”What is an expert witness?”]An expert witness is a trained professional with highly specialized training in one or more areas of specialty.  This could include but is not limited to physicians, law enforcement officials, educational leaders, environmental scientists, psychologists, and leaders in many other professions.  An expert witness can provide expert testimony in certain court cases, and this may help you win your case.

[notice title=”How do I know if I need an expert witness?”]Firstly, you will want to find out what kind of expert witness you will need. How might this person’s testimony in court help you win your case? The type of expert witness you might need will depend on the details of your case, as well as whether your case is a civil or criminal one. Oklahoma Judicial Process Servers recommends that you ask the attorney handling your case if an expert witness could help you.  If you do not have an attorney in charge of your legal matter, Oklahoma Judicial Process Servers can often help match you up with an attorney who can assist you.  In some cases, lawyers through organizations like Legal Aid will help you for free.  In special cases that do not require attorneys, the ultimate decision about whether or not to obtain the assistance of an expert witness may rest solely with you.[/notice]

[notice title=”What type of educational and practical experience does an expert witness have?”]The type of educational background and experience will vary from one expert witness to another.  For example, a medical doctor who serves as an expert witness will have a bachelor’s degree and another degree in medicine, as well as years of experience as a physician.  A law enforcement expert may have a wide and eclectic amount of educational and/or practical training, and he or she will have served in a field either in or directly related to law enforcement.  Many of the expert witnesses are licensed by their respective boards or licensing agencies.[/notice]

[notice title=”Will hiring an expert witness definitely help me win my case?”]No one can say with all certainty that the expert witness you hire will be able to successfully help you win your case. Your judge may go before a judge or a jury, and they will weigh all of the evidence as a whole. An expert witness can, in many cases, assist in providing special knowledge about a particular topic or area that is likely to be specific to your case. Oklahoma Judicial Process Servers will work with both you and your attorney, if you have one, to help determine whether an expert witness is likely to help further your side of your criminal or civil case.[/notice]

[notice title=”Isn’t an expert witness just another “hired gun” who will always testify on someone’s behalf for money?”]The expert witnesses at Oklahoma Judicial Process Servers will offer their assistance to you if they think they can help you win your case. They are not “hired guns” per se, and if they disagree with your position or think they cannot be of help, they will tell you this in advance.
