The best solution to overcome this challenge is to always prepare in advance and seek the guidance of the jury or the attorney on areas to address. This will ensure that the expert witness does not lose his or her credibility in the courtroom and with the jury, who depend on his knowledge, expertise, and experience. The second professional challenge is that the expert witnesses might provide the attorney with complex information that can be confusing to the attorney during a case. This is because the expert witnesses are experts in their field of forensic science, which is a different field from that of the attorney. The solution is to explain complex issues in the most simple but relevant manner that the jury or attorneys can understand.
