When do you need an expert witness?
An expert witness can and has been utilized at all points in the litigation spectrum. An expert witness, however, is typically required in one of two scenarios. First, when trial is approaching and an expert is required to opine on certain aspects at issue in trial or second, to support litigation efforts prior to trial, likely including deposition work. Generally, a case is not ripe for a real estate expert witness if the lawyer has yet to be retained. We suggest retaining local counsel prior to seeking an expert witness, however, Real Estate Expert Witnesses, LLC will happily speak with those who believe they require an expert witness prior to or without retention of counsel.
