    Companies invest considerable time, effort and money when selecting and implementing a major mission critical computer system. Successfully completing the process can be complicated and frustrating; as a result, it doesn't take a lot for implementations to fail. The problem is that the business organization that undertook the implementation in the first place is stuck - stuck with the time, money and the inconvenience of not having the system they purchased. The company has not only left without the new system, they are back to using the systems that they originally thought so inadequate that they committed to spending the time and money for a new system.

Often the attorney requires a person with unique expertise to understand and present technical information in a manner that is understandable to the lay person. Attorneys often determine the need for an expert witness after discovery and after depositions have been taken for many of the witnesses. In many cases this is too late for an expert to most effective. My experience as an expert witness has led me to recommend considering the use of an expert at the following times
