When is the right time to engage an expert witness?
Real Estate Expert Witnesses, LLC recommends engaging an expert earlier in the process rather than later, but certainly prior to immediately before trial. Remember, the expert is your subject matter guru and, if properly informed, can be of great assistance to counsel during motion practice, discovery, depositions, mediation and/or arbitration. The less time an expert is provided to procure an expert opinion or state disclosure statement, the less informed they are on the nuisances of the case and attorney is afforded less opportunity to learn from the expert and advance the case. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Real Estate Expert Witnesses, LLC can and has performed services under tight timing deadlines.
