Joe Cordell Offers Crash Course in Expert Testimony for Financial Advisor Magazine

financial advisor magazineIn this month’s Financial Advisor Magazine column, Principal Partner Joe Cordell gives a crash course for financial advisors taking the stand as a retained expert witness.

The Oct. 20 article, “Financial Advisors As Expert Witnesses — A Good Idea?,” introduces how financial advisors should prepare for a case when they are going to offer expert testimony, whether it be a divorce or criminal trial.

His tips include maintaining qualification as an expert in their respective field, remembering that they must educate everyone involved with the case on subjects that most are unfamiliar, becoming comfortable conveying the important aspects of testimony in a question-and-answer format, surviving cross-examination and more.

While the article targets financial advisors and how to give expert testimony, much of the advice can be utilized by anyone who must take the stand.

“Proper preparation will prevent you from having to slip in important information when you were not directly asked the appropriate question, which most likely will draw an objection from the opposing party. It can be very beneficial to give your attorney an outline breaking down the most important aspects of your testimony with a few sample questions.”

5 Cordell & Cordell Attorneys Named Rising Stars By Super Lawyers

super lawyers 2014Five Cordell & Cordell attorneys were recently recognized as Rising Stars in the family law practice area by Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters rating service of outstanding lawyers.

Brad Cunningham and Heath Davis were recognized as Oklahoma Rising Stars, and Brittany Brown, Cherlyn Crosby-Herberts and Sean Riley were awarded the Missouri and Kansas Rising Stars designation.

Each year, no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in each state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive this honor.

For Mr. Cunningham, the award marks his fourth time being recognized by Super Lawyers. Mr. Riley was named a Rising Star in 2013 and Mr. Davis, Ms. Brown, and Ms. Crosby-Herberts each received their first Rising Star award.

The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.

Lawyers are asked to nominate the best attorneys who are 40 years old or under, or who have been practicing for 10 years or less. They are instructed to nominate lawyers they have personally observed in action — whether as opposing counsel or co-counsel, or through other firsthand courtroom observation.
