Real Estate Appraisals & Consulting for Litigation & Expert Witness Testimony
Appraisal for litigation requires the highest level of experience, competence and market knowledge. A credible expert witness who is properly prepared to document and articulate a credible opinion is an integral part of the team necessary to resolve cases before trial or win at trial.
Legal counsel and the expert witness need to directly discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the case. The expert needs to carefully prepare for both deposition and trial testimony. Hiring the right appraisal expert witness can make or break a case.
The expert witness’ primary responsibility is to develop and support a credible opinion of value in competent, defendable report. The report must be also presented by a witness beyond reproach who can clearly communicate financial intricacies to the fact finder
As both opposing counsel and the expert witness representing the other party will carefully review and scrutinize the expert’s underlying data, analysis and final report, all market data must be thoroughly researched and verified.
