Homeland Security Expert Witnesses
Cahn Litigation Services is frequently called upon by law firm clients to locate expert witnesses that can support homeland security matters. A homeland security expert witness typically has extensive experience and expertise in law enforcement, information security, cyber security, public safety, military duties, and/or emergency management. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a homeland security subject matter expert with prior testimony experience. In addition to expertise, a homeland security expert witness should feel comfortable explaining evidence to a judge and jury.
The United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was established to secure the nation from threats. DHS’ missions involve anti-terrorism, border security, immigration and customs, cyber security, and disaster prevention and management. Representative matters that have required homeland security expert witness services include school safety, emergency management and emergency preparedness, workplace violence, cyberattacks, negligent security, hazardous materials, and counterterrorism. DHS has seen its share of lawsuits, including allegations related to the public charge rule, unlawful law enforcement, asylum, and violation of the Information Quality Act, among others.
Litigation support by a homeland security expert witness could include a security assessment, an expert report, expert opinion, and courtroom testimony. Attorney clients may also utilize a homeland security or cybersecurity expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
