Just recently I testified as an expert witness in a divorce case in a rural county courthouse. The purpose was to establish the value of the assets and a base level of income in order for my client to receive maintenance and her share of the marital assets.
This was not a long time on the stand, only forty minutes. The opposing attorney strayed off topic a bit in an attempt to get me disqualified and to prevent my report from being admitted. Fortunately, he was not successful. It looks like we got good results for our client. Every time the testimony goes well it is a great feeling when you leave the courthouse.
