Make no mistake about it, the Experts Seminar scheduled for April 3-4 in Seaside, FL is sure to be a pivotal, game-changing event that will give you a systemized approach to expert witnesses that you and your clients deserve to develop a winning strategy.  
Here’s a preview of what you’ll be missing if you don’t attend:
We will be going over the role of expert witnesses in depth, covering topics ranging from use of focus groups to select the best expert for the case, all the way down to use of experts in a “causation first” case.  Other topics will include the Keenan Edge Three-Legged Stool for Experts (including a discussion of “the speech”); How Experts fit into the case selection criteria stool; Dale Carnegie, Expert witnesses and the Treating physician; Expert Deposition Hit Lists and the 48 hour rule; Practical ways to control Expert Witness fees; Analogous system failures and experts; The power of OSI’s to weaponize your expert witness; Experts and the Internet from Bubba’s Perspective; Bubba’s major complaints about expert witnesses and the lawyers that call them to testify; and the Keenan Edge System for locating, identifying, qualifying and selecting expert witnesses.  And that’s not even all the topics that we’ll cover!
Seats are filling up fast.  So sign up now because this seminar is the first of its kind in KTI history and is likely to be a sell-out event.
