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.”
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.

I have successfully completed the National Expert Witness Academy certificate program offered by the Advocates’ Society in 2012 and 2013. This two-day program covered law, procedure, written evidence and court room skills for expert witnesses.
