When dealing with an opposing expert witness, exposing the truth is not only an essential part of cross-examination but one that becomes imperative. An attorney must ask questions to allow the jury to see that the opposing expert witness has a bias in the case. It may also be possible to show that the expert witness is claiming credentials they, in fact, may not possess or have previously exaggerated.

collateral attack on an expert witness allows an attorney to turn the jury against them or at least create doubt as to their testimony.

Before any testimony is given in open court, attorneys can learn a large amount of information in preparation to rebut that expert witness.
