Elite Consultant’s Experience
The Experts role will vary from case to case. Elite Consultants has served solely as a Consultant to the Lawyer and remain in the background. At other times we will be used in the pre-trial stages, perhaps to give an affidavit supporting an element of the case. In addition, Elite may serve solely as an expert witness at trial. Occasionally, we will play a combination of these roles.
