Counselor: Please tell the Court your name.
Expert Witness: My name is Will Kazez

This is not a good start. I am not naturally a nervous person. I have survived teaching calculus to a large class that included the entire freshman football team of the University of Pennsylvania, but I've never been an Expert Witness. Even though I'm confident of the mathematics, I'm not sure I like the idea of being cross-examined. But still, I'm just rehearsing my testimony with the lawyer, and even if I've got my own name a little wrong, what's the worry? At any rate, lawyers do not like being interrupted.
Kazez, William H.
