Expert Witness

With more than 25 years of experience as an expert witness in discrimination cases, I combine prominence as a researcher with knowledge of the legal system. I am adept at sifting through case evidence, writing compelling and insightful reports, and testifying in depositions and trials.

I have testified in Federal Court, most recently in Austin in Nikolova v. University of Texas at Austin, where the jury found intentional discrimination and awarded the plaintiff $3 million in damages. I have also testified in Federal Court in Chicago, for Metty v. Motorola (which settled during trial) and in Boston, for Tuli v. Brigham & Women’s Hospital, in which the plaintiff was awarded $1.6 million. Few discrimination experts possess the same degree of skills, experience, and knowledge. I understand how to handle a deposition and how to speak effectively and clearly to a jury.

I provide social framework testimony that educates case decision-makers about the nuances of discrimination, alerting them to relevant case facts whose significance might otherwise be missed. Attorneys have found my reports extremely valuable.

As a highly experienced expert who knows where the legal lines are drawn,  my testimony has consistently withstood motions to exclude. In Tuli v. Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Judge Nancy Gertner (United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts) excluded other experts, but upheld my testimony’s value as both scientifically grounded and going beyond common-sense knowledge.

Judge Gertner wrote:

“Professor Glick’s opinion is based not simply on experience, but also social psychological testing of stereotyping and discrimination over the past thirty to forty years… [he] brings the insights of established scientific theory and social framework analysis, as to which he is an expert, to bear on the facts of this case. It is an area that the jury may well not have common knowledge”
