Kelsey Adams, Client Director of Litigation Consulting at Kevin Kennedy Associates releases why the name of your expert is critical.

"Shakespeare posed the question long ago, and now we will too. What do an expert’s name and post-nominal letters tell you about his experience, reputation, and how he may be able to contribute to your case?", according to Adams.

"To some extent, the letters following an expert’s name can speak for themselves. They can identify an area of practice, decades of specialized training and schooling, or endorsements from certifying bodies. On the other hand, we can’t always decode these letters without the help of a search engine, and we can’t be sure if they represent an advanced degree, a workshop, or a stamp of approval from an organization with annual membership fees. So, how can you utilize these letters to choose an expert that will fit your needs and bring credibility to you and your case?", according to the article.

We think it’s important to ask several questions about the letters that follow an expert’s name:

  •     In the area of your case, what education, training, and certification is expected, and what sets someone apart in this field?
  •     Will the expert’s credentials give credibility to your case or cause confusion?
  •     How does the expert explain his experience and qualification?
  •     How has the expert used his credentials throughout his career?
