The Bode Technology Group is keenly aware of the unique requirements of our customers, and strives to meet or exceed those needs. We fully appreciate that our customers in law offices across the country have different viewpoints and requirements on how to question expert witnesses. To assist our customers in this regard, the following is a general pool of potential testimony questions. It is not our intent that all of these questions should be used at one trial. The questions can be treated as a pool of topic areas to choose from or to stimulate ideas for other questions. In general it has been our experience that keeping it simple is the best practice. For more information on this approach, please refer to the article by James Wooley on the KISS ( “Keep It Simple Stupid” ) principle Wooley, James R. Presenting DNA Evidence at Trial: The “K.I.S.S. Principle”. Profiles in DNA, May 1997, Promega Corporation Volume 1(1): 3-4 (PDF).
These questions were revised from the National District Attorneys Association “Trial Technique: Predicate Questions”
