Programming Expert Witnesses

Programming expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience in computer science, software engineering, and/or computer forensics. The chosen expert may be a member of an industry organization such as the Association of Software Professionals (ASP), the Developers Alliance, or the IEEE Computer Society Technical Council on Software Engineering (TCSE). In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a computer engineer or programmer with prior expert witness experience.
