Do you handle plaintiff cases? Defense cases? Insurance cases?
I am an unbiased finder of fact. I provide expert witness services in my area of expertise to attorneys, municipalities, insurance firms, corporations, and other experts in need of assistance.
Fees, Rates, and Billing
Consulting services are billed at a flat rate of $150.00 per hour. This includes all activities, such as case review, report preparation, depositions and preparations, and expert court testimony and preparation.
If travel is required, all transportation costs, hotel and per diem for meals are the responsibility of, and billable to the client.
Detailed invoices will be submitted upon completion of major case segments, such as after reviewing the case materials and rendering an initial opinion, after the preparation of an expert witness report, after a deposition, and after court testimony. Invoices are due within 30-days of receipt unless negotiated otherwise prior to the case.
Is a retainer required?
I generally request a deposit / retainer of $900.00 prior to the initiation of work. The retainer generally covers the first six (6) hours of work.
Is there a cost to obtain a copy of my resume or CV?
There is no cost to obtain a copy of my resume or CV. I also welcome the opportunity to discuss with you, at no charge, the nature and scope of your case, and if we would be a good fit.
What is your turnaround for providing a case review or expert witness report?
The time can vary significantly, depending on the complexity and size of the case, but typical turn around time is 4-5 weeks. Services can be expedited if you have time constraints.
