Hiring the child abuse expert witness early on in your case will benefit you in several ways. These include:
1) The expert can advise you of past or pending cases with similar issues involving the physical, emotional, or sexual mistreatment of children.
2) They can put you in touch with the attorneys and witnesses from those cases.
3) They can suggest other expert witnesses and identify opposing experts. When appropriate your expert can go to the place where the case occurred and examine the evidence.
