Fact witnesses were the focus of the article due to a general absence of literature on preparing fact witnesses for trial. Two actual cases were utilized to illustrate the techniques involved in professionally conducted witness evaluation and preparation. Practical tips are provided to attorneys for enhancing the effectiveness of their witnesses.
