As Financial Crime Terrain Grows, the Need for Good Expert Witnesses Expands Also, Recruiter Says

acfcs.org | October 2, 2013

Becoming an expert witness is a common career goal for financial crime specialists. For government specialists this goal often blossoms in late-career. Not all aspiring expert witnesses recognize the importance of self-promotion or the tools they should use to spread their skills and availability to wider circles. Testifying in adversarial proceedings often forces expert witnesses to explain complex concepts to a body of lay persons and face unfriendly cross-examination. The ability to project the ability to confront these challenges well often is the key to success. The work of expert witnesses often marks the difference between success and failure in a case.

Serving as an expert witness is not easy, but can be rewarding professionally and financially. It allows professionals to capitalize on the knowledge they acquired over many years. In this ACFCS Financial Crimecast, ACFCS president Charles Intriago, a former federal prosecutor, interviews Melinda Starbird, Vice President and Managing Director of Expert Witness Services at DOAR Litigation Consulting, in Seattle. She details what an expert should do to become a successful expert witness in the financial crime arena.

Starbird, who earned a law degree but does not practice law, recruits expert witnesses for cases in which DOAR provides litigation support. She explains why she looks for persons with government experience, provides guidance on “personal branding” and explains its importance, cites the value of professional certifications and outlines how persons with specific expertise should price their services as expert witnesses.
