I would also suggest, not adequately prepping your expert. As an expert in life care planning I rarely get more than a cursory 10 minutes about when and where to be, what to bring, but nothing about the case itself. I would much prefer information about the opposing attorney, any questions to expect, issues that might be brought up, etc.

Definitely agree with everything said in here. I am a forensic scientist and I spent a lot of time volunteering for the court when I was in school. There was one case in particular where the officer was called as a witness and did not remember the events. I think one of the best things your witness can do is have notes. For an officer they should ave the police report in front of them and make references to it. Due to some incredible complex litigation the prosecutor was able to save the case not thanks to the under prepared officer.
