Join other experts and attorneys to discuss Ethical Dilemmas for Expert Witnesses. Mark Harrison, a member of the Osborn Maledon PA law firm in Phoenix, will present his perspective on a number of issues faced by experts including:

  • The expert's rights to withhold a report of opinions for lack of payment
  • Attorney influence for a favorable opinion
  • Omission of information not favorable to retained counsel or client
  • Conflicts of interest that may arise over the course of an engagement
