WHAT MAKES FEWA DIFFERENT?
FEWA has the distinction of being the only expert witness association that requires verifiable qualifications and testimonies to be designated as a Member. As a result, the application process is thorough and comprehensive and Members are well-rounded, successful professionals.
Members of the Association have adopted and, as a consideration of membership, subscribe to the Code of Professional Ethics. By doing so, they give notice that they clearly recognize the vital need to preserve and encourage fair and equitable practices among all who are engaged in the practice of forensic consulting.
The review process typically will be completed within 30 days of receiving your application. We appreciate your patience as we review your application.
All applicants must pay a one-time application fee of $50 and submit a resume or CV.
