I just attended your How to Start, Build and Run a Successful Expert Witness Practice in Mission Bay. It was one of the best and most valuable seminars that I have ever attended. After 45-years of CPA practice, that is a lot of seminars. I have been involved in expert witness cases for only two years (two trial testimonies and 1 arbitration settlement). You identified a lot of mistakes that I have been making so I am grateful to have learned this before I am run out of the business before it gets going. I signed up for your directory, purchased your Retention Agreement Program and, previously purchased the A-Z Guide. After I delve into building my expert witness business some more, I may seek your assistance in improving and marketing my business. Thank you, Nadine and Dr. Baker for a job well done.
I enjoyed the training very much. I found it to be extremely informative. It’s funny how easily we can fall into traps. As I was listening to some of the volunteers, I could see some of the pitfalls being set up where prior to the class, I not only would have fallen into them, I probably would have helped to dig them! Thank you, and I look forward to taking another SEAK course in the future.
Having been in the forensic world for 3 years and with 3 depo’s under my belt, it was a perfect time to attend your seminar. Really good presentation! Thanks much for all the good stuff you imparted. I have 2 trials slated for this spring/summer, and am feeling much better prepared having been to the seminar.
“I have attended two SEAK conferences in the past year. Since I attended my first SEAK conference, my forensic expert witness business has tripled because of what I learned. I find the SEAK conference(s) to be my best source information and the most important conference that I attend to actually help me improve my product and be able to promote my business.”
“Please also thank Jim for me, for all the great advice and teaching a few years ago. My expert consulting practice has grown quite a bit, and is now self sustaining at a very active level. I have incorporated much of what I have learned from SEAK and Jim into my work.”
“The two times you have led(expert witness) training sessions at our company meeting have been the best training sessions on ANY topics we have had in the past 14 years and you can quote me on that…I look forward to having you back.”
“I look forward to seeing you at your fall meeting. Thank you once more.”
Your conference I attended last year just helped me make a jury realize they needed to find that a Family Physician was not responsible for a patient’s death. I rocked at trial. Thank You.
“Just to let you know, we did very well at the CSC hearing and received siting approval for the substation. Your training was great introduction for us to understand the level preparation required for to successfully testify on behalf of the company. You are on our list for “expert witness” training for our future needs. Again thanks for your assistance.” – Corporate client we prepared for an administrative hearing
“I attended your recent advanced training in Florida. I testified yesterday in court, the first such testimony since the training. It was a huge success as I felt for the first time, completely comfortable with my opinion, my report and my testimony. I have been doing expert witness work for quite some time, but have only started testifying more in recent years. I have observed others, completed various trainings and as you know there is a steep learning curve in this area, so have learned from every experience—good and especially, bad. Your class though was the “tipping point” in terms of me finally understanding and being able to implement testifying skills, starting with a completely reasoned opinion and ending with educating the court, remaining calm and speaking clearly and directly. I especially learned from watching all the witnesses get grilled at your training—seeing what experts look like when they can’t give a straight answer or are defensive really was instructive and eye opening. There were many take aways from the class but I especially liked Jim’s quote from The Art of War—he who is strong everywhere, is strong nowhere. I was able to give where I needed to and stand firm, where I wouldn’t. The other side should send their expert to your training…”
