Expert Witnesses

Find Witness by Topic

Expert witnesses can be found in directories, both print and electronic, or through referral services. Oftentimes the expert pays to be included in the directory or referral service.

Some cases also list the expert witness by name. Try searching sources such as caselaw, jury verdicts, or newspapers to find expert witnesses who have testified on a particular topic. Additional sources can be found in the Research a Specific Witness page of this guide.
