Can expert witnesses work on a national basis or do they need to be local?
This depends on the case and the issue. If the case calls for a hyper local issue, then a local expert is probably better suited for that matter. However, if the case is less focused on a hyper local issue, a national expert may be preferred. It is Real Estate Expert Witnesses, LLC’s opinion that the best experts for the case are the ones who understand the relevant legal issues best, not necessarily those physically closest to the real estate.
The issue of a local versus national real estate expert witness is one which should usually be determined in conjunction with retaining counsel.
