Forensic and Valuation Services (FVS)

Aug 19, 2021

Guests: Josh Shilts, CPA/ABV/CFF/CGMA and Richard Pollack, CPA, ABV, CFF, PFS, CGMA

In 1993 the U.S. Supreme Court made it ruling in the case Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, Inc., 509 U.S. 579 (1993).  This case established the Daubert standard and provides criteria by which the trial judge may make a preliminary assessment of the admissibility of expert testimony presented in United States federal (and most state) legal proceedings.

Josh and guest Richard Pollack, CPA, ABV, CFF, PFS, CGMA discuss:

  • Daubert fundamentals
  • How to prepare for a Daubert challenge
  • The importance of due diligence and supporting your position

The podcast will also discuss some important strategies such as:

  • Being your own advocate and not the attorney’s
  • Remembering the importance of using reasonable and generally accepted principles in your work
  • Avoiding ‘rushed engagements’
