What is an expert Witness?
An expert witness in any dispute brings to the parties an unbiased independent view of the technicalities of the matter.
Ask yourself this ‘Do I settle for second best?’ and ‘could this compromise my case?’
If the answer to these are No and Yes then you must not settle for second best and do not compromise your position. Speak to Verification Associates for that professional approach to expert witness that can support your case.
