    Selecting any expert witness requires an attorney to understand the issues at bar, as well as the opinions of experts that will be required to provide clarity to the finder(s) of fact. Some areas of practice, such as land use and real property litigation, often create added dimensions of complexity in evaluating and planning for necessary testimony. Obviously, litigation varies widely from case to case, and the attorney's challenge in putting together expert testimony to clearly define the facts and relevant conclusions of the case cover a tremendous range of issues. Considerations that go into properly evaluating the need for expert testimony, and subsequently selecting and managing the experts, can be one of the most critical aspects of case and trial preparation.
