Expert Witness in an Estate Settlement case

In May 2008, I was retained by the counsellor representing the respondents’ side to present an alternative report based on the reduced life expectancy of the applicant due to her smoking habits. In the verdict of this case, Ontario Superior Court Justice The Honourable Mr. Timothy Ray noted in paragraph 62, “His (the applicant’s actuary’s) calculations assumed no reduced mortality for “smoking” on the ground that that factor is not taken into account for pension valuation by actuaries. I do not accept his evidence on that point, and prefer the evidence of Mr. Gupta.

A copy of Justice Ray’s verdict is linked for your reference.

At the beginning of this testimony, the applicant’s counsel accepted me as an expert witness, requiring little time and effort by the respondent’s counsel.
