Perspectives from an Expert Appraisal Witness

October 26, 2023

Listen to the perspectives from ASA Candidate Member Lisa Barnes, an art appraiser and expert appraisal witness, as heard on Discussions at the Round Table by the Round Table Group.

Learn more about why Ms. Barnes believes that the way an expert presents information is as important as the information being presented, explaining, “You need to be very simple and appeal to people [with] your language, your body posture.” She goes on, “When one simplifies it as an expert…you will be able to win. You [have to] know the people that you’re trying to appeal to.” As well as her perspectives on intimidation in the courtroom, the expert-attorney relationship, and the importance of being on the ‘winning’ side of an engagement.
