Enter Angus: His Initial Words of Wisdom Focus on Cross-Examining Expert Witnesses
McElhaney’s Greatest Hits: Jim McElhaney’s 25-year run as Litigation columnist for the ABA Journal will come to a close next fall. During those years, McElhaney’s straightforward advice on trial practice became one of the most popular features in the magazine. The Journal is reprinting some of McElhaney’s “greatest hits” from the past quarter-century. This article originally appeared in the Journal’s March 1989 issue under the headline “Expert Witnesses.” But what makes the column truly special is that it introduces Angus—we never got a last name—as the voice of wisdom and common sense on all aspects of trial work. From that point on, Angus became the central figure in a cast of characters that helped show what being an effective trial lawyer is all about. Hear McElhaney discuss his real-life influences behind the Angus character in this podcast.
