Forensic Audiology: A Guide for the Expert Witness The First Edition


This unique book is written for audiologists who are interested in broadening their practice to include acting as an expert witness in legal cases. While audiologists may feel that their training, experience, and specialization prepares them to become an expert witness, it is critical to have an understanding of the special processes, customs, etiquette, and tactics involved in the legal profession, and how to develop a forensic audiology practice. The authors draw on their many years of experience and begin with an overview of the legal systems and the U.S. court system. The book also includes:

  • The rules of expert testimony
  • The structure of criminal and civil cases
  • The phases of discovery, deposition, and trial
  • The roles, responsibilities, and ethics involved in forensic audiology
  • How to create an impressive curriculum vitae, interact with attorneys, legal report writing, deposition and trial testimony techniques, and fee schedules
