Program Overview

A Review Report is directed toward the substantive aspects of developing a credible opinion of the quality of another’s work that was performed. Since the credibility of an expert’s testimony is a fact to be decided by the fact finder, the Review testimony opines on the substantive elements of credibility such as relevance, reliability, transparency, etc. A Rebuttal Report essentially focuses on argument related to quantitative aspects of testimony as opposed to the qualitative aspects. Each may be appropriate at various stages of litigation or the processes may be combined to produce more effective rebuttal testimony.
